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!
Cancer to Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 17, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
