Like much of the world, I’ve been in isolation for weeks with my family. My husband goes grocery shopping every Monday evening (when there seem to be fewer shoppers); we do a pickup from a local restaurant every Thursday night; and we’ve yell-chatted from fifty feet away with some friends who live nearby. Otherwise, we’ve had almost no contact with others.
I’ve spent a good portion of every day feeling very thankful, and incredibly lucky. So many lives have been lost, and many many more turned upside down, because of COVID-19, while the biggest challenges I've faced have been adjusting to working from home, overseeing my kids' virtual learning, and deciding what to make for dinner.
