Remembering April's Quarantine
I've been thinking about all the time Don and I have spent together, since March. We've been a good quarantine team, but I've envied friends who were "stuck" at home with their families.
For the past 10 days, I feel like our family has sort of been "playing quarantine" together. It's as if we are happily trapped on a boat, or an island. I mean that in a good way.
It's been so nice sitting together with no plans. Bundling up on one chilly evening and scalding our feet in spa water, another!
It's been nice being together long enough, that we can also be apart.
Scott spent a couple mornings focused on work. Don kept up with the news, during breakfast. Jamie and Heidi played a little music.
It's been nice listening to the sounds of guitar and piano, floating around the rental house.
Chali did some puzzle work and Heidi actually colored in an old coloring book... at least for a little while.
Chali set up the best meditation spot at the cabin. She's been our garden tender, at the coast house.
It's been nice to also have some one on one time.
Scott and Chali played... with juggling balls and skulls!
The expecting parents looked through Heidi's old baby books. Don and Scott talked on the patio, as the sun set.
I'm realistic enough to know that our quarantine vacation has not been the same as a forced quarantine... with jobs or school stresses.
But I will remember our isolated Oregon getaway, as the highlight of the pandemic!
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast CANCER and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. This time it was the invasion of COVID and it affected every person. I ranted for a year, until I got my COVID vaccine in March 2021.
CORONARY Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was my hubby Don, who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
