As it's become apparent that what we are facing with Covid-19 is like nothing most of us have seen in our lifetimes, I've decided to keep a diary or log. I'm still writing at Medium, but I need a place to share random thoughts, un-hinged feelings, and some good old semi-coherent disbelief about what life has become.

Today is the 2nd day of schools being closed statewide. The kids were not excited about the closures, they'd rather be at school, and Danny would certainly rather be with his friends, especially given that I'm still working.

Tomorrow, we'll be closing our office to the public, but we'll keep working. Things change so fast, day by day, and it's hard to know what's going to be happening at the end of this week or the beginning of next week.

Today was the day I finally tipped from having a shred of optimism to just scared and unsure. Super cool! Anticipation and uncertainty are not my strong suits. I finally cried the ugly cry and it felt good. I'm trying to just remember we are all in the same boat. I miss my Kat. I miss obliviousness. I miss standing on the shore with waves lapping at my ankles rather than standing there watching all the water be sucked out to sea and waiting for the wave.
