I never made it out of the house today, and it was just as well. The temperature outside was around freezing, and not expected to be much better until tomorrow morning.

Not having a job provides me with one luxury most people don't have - the freedom to get up when I want. Today, the alarm woke me up around 8 am, and I silenced it, falling back to sleep until noon. This cut into the time I should have been taking the online course - and I expect that I'll pay for that mistake over the next couple of days.
When I scanned my email, I received a message from one of the co-op board members. Someone had reported a situation where another resident's health was at risk - and that we had to address promptly. Privacy concerns prevent me from going into details, but this person could have been at serious risk had he/she had gone outside in the cold. Luckily, the co-op's managing agent is aware of the problem and is addressing it to the best of her ability.
Once done with my email (and other distractions) I proceeded to take the first of two modules (scheduled for today) in the online course. Hopefully, I'll do OK in the assessments, or I'll have let a $800 freebie go to waste.

Yes, I could have done much more with the day. But this was a case where my comfort won out. Tomorrow, I may go to a women's meetup group (in Marian mode) to learn to play Mah Jongg, depending on how I feel at the time. I figure it this way - the more I'm with cisgender women, the more like them I can learn to be....
