I love my manual Ikea convertible desk (the electric ones are known to fail and Ikea doesn’t sell spare parts for them, apparently). Also, with the money I didn’t spend on a fancy desk I bought an Aeron chair off-lease. Comfy sitting or standing!

Yeah I used to live about a quarter of a mile from them, so I suppose I lucked out in that. There are probably similar joints in most cities though...

Recently bought this HP monitor - does its job and very affordable. https://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/hp-p204-195-inch-monitor

I'm grounded cause my husband traveled. Under a new order, returning travelers must quarantine 10 days and they should isolate from others in the household, even wear masks at home. Husband is about to return from a work trip, & he's not on board. So to stay "clean" and able to go out myself, I plan to sleep in my home office for HIS quarantine, with my air purifier on, and mask up if we are in the same room. Ridiculously inconvenient, but I do not feel it's ethical to risk infecting others.
