COVID-19: March 22

I started writing this post over a week ago, but never finished. I’m going to post it as-is to keep track of what was going on at the time.

The world feels very surreal right now.

In less than a week we went from being excited about our spring break trip to Disney World to being locked in self-quarantine along with the rest of the world.

That’s how quickly things have changed. We were excited about our trip, then we were wondering whether we should cancel, then Disney World canceled, then we considered what to do instead, then we learned more about “social distancing” and the need to limit our interactions with others for the good of everyone, and then our city basically shut down for non-essential travel.

School is canceled for the next several months and we are limiting our trips and interactions with others as much as possible. We go to the store to get food or staples and that’s about it. And the stores have serious shortages. It’s impossible to get disinfectant of course, but there are also regular runs on bread, rice, pasta, cheese, etc.

Jill and I feel like we’re walking through a daze. We’re watching a lot of TV and movies, playing a lot of games, watching the news, and drinking more than our fair share of beer and wine.
