I did it. I made it through our first week back. I stretched the limits of my comfort zone this week and found it both terrifying and liberating. I still worked from home some, but I think I'm pretty much ready to transition to fully back in the building. It's been very difficult to split … Continue reading Weekly Nibble: May 22, 2020
