While we're still finding we need to explain why we're staying home again, and why we can't visit our friends, the kids seem to be settling into home routines.
Last night was filled with tons of questions about why we couldn't go shopping, or visiting, or even just next door. We found and watched Osmosis Jones as a bridge, for both its entertainment value, but also as a relatable way to explain what's going on.
Today has been not quite as loud, as work has settled into the new routine, and fewer meetings in general were scheduled today. The week seems front-loaded with meetings, and especially with the transition to working-from-home, there were lots of extra discussions around how to work.
The wife broke quarantine to make a "last" run for supplies. Although I had been pointing out that the two-week guideline is just to help meet the incubation period, and that school closings end with spring break, making it a 20-day break, and that the quarantine in other places has lasted months, and that the CDC has said that this could last until August...despite all of that, she was reluctant to stock up on some staples. So she ran for some today.
The kids and I are still neighborhood quarantined, taking the good dog up and down the block to get out of the house for a little bit. The dog is still a bit of a leash-puller, so we're working on that, since the kids want to be the ones holding the leash. The dog could probably drag both of them down the road if she had a desire to do so. We did encounter a classmate of the older kiddo on our walk today. They came nearby, but kept some paces away; an easy llama distance (saw that somewhere). I think the little "hello," and hearing from the friend's older brother that they're doing the same distancing, helped put my kids' minds at ease and show we're not making up something weird.
We have started the task of rearranging our messes. All of that "get to it later" stuff, is still not "later enough" to get to.
Everyone's still healthy. No unexpected coughs or aches, and no fevers.
