I am wont to believe that this whole thing is some kind of test; we as people are overreacting to this minor pandemic to practice for something that may or may not ever happen, but could. I mean, we could all believe that, right? I still don’t think it’s as bad as they’re saying.
In some ways, I am starting to believe that Elliot and Dakota already had it. New info coming out says this thing was in full swing by October. Elliot was unusually sick in November and had a good number of the presenting symptoms. And right after he was sick, so was Dakota. They both slept an inordinate amount of time, which is unusual for them whenever they are sick. So it could have been. We don’t really know because China lied or at least withheld information from the world.
What I do know is that the kids are now home until the 15th of April and I am online through the end of the term. I’m fine with that but I am not used to doing all my work with other people here. Neither is Ash so he is adjusting as best he can since they’re saying stay home for at least a month. I go back and forth between being very and perhaps overly worried and then feeling like if everyone takes precautions (and I realize you can’t make EVERYONE do this) we will get through this. It’ll all be ok. What do you think? What are you feelings here?
