Day 1 Coronacation

The sun was shining.
The air was cool and crisp.
There was a happy dog on a leash.
My daughter and I took Brody for a 2 mile walk. He needs the energy release…as do I.
The long walk gave us time for a long talk. Time to catch up.
Hoping this becomes part of our daily routine…our new normal.


She has struggled with OCD and germs her whole life. She has been dealing with this with such amazing strength. Doing what is necessary for her safety but living her life. She had been going to the gym and that’s helped her mental health. Now her gym is closed.

She is balancing between anger and fear.
Anxiety bubbling below the surface.

My son did his work out in the basement and spent most of his time in room.
I am hoping to get him to walk with me or play some basketball in the cul-de-sac.

He is balancing between anger and fear.
Anxiety bubbling below the surface.

My husband owns his own law firm.
Decisions have to be made regarding his employees.
They want to work and right now there is still work to be done.

He is balancing between anger and fear.
Anxiety bubbling below the surface.

I sit here and write with the news in the background…always in the background.
Words like …Through July, Dire Warnings, Lockdowns, Dramatic Steps.

I am balancing between anger and fear.
Anxiety bubbling below the surface.
