I think I got out of San Francisco just in time.
The airport, when I arrived on Saturday morning, was half empty. I breezed through the TSA pre-check line, only one in it, talked to the agents there about the strange time we are living in. There were a group of them standing around joking about the toilet paper shortage. At my gate, there were enough empty seats for social distancing, which is apparently the new thing. On the plane, I had the whole row to myself. The Chicago airport was rather quiet too, in that first pic was where I sat in my layover. I think the craziness started after that, so I'm glad I left when I did.
When President Trump mentioned a ban on travel from California the other day, I knew I had to get home.
Now San Francisco is pretty much locked down.
Here's the thing: the whole world is turned upside down. It is. There is no question about that. Now we have to decide how we want to live our days. We can be scared, or downright terrified, or we can battle against it and rest assured that God is in control.
We are all settled in and ready to stay home. The kids have their schoolwork...
Miss Cam all settled in to get things done.
We have some library books, and our pantry is stocked. We have food in the freezer, and if things get really bad, we'll actually eat the venison ha.
We should be praying for each other (for Marilyn who is traveling today!), and encourage one another to take life one day at a time, or even one moment at a time. Also, being thankful to God for all things, is a powerful weapon against anxiety!
Charlotte Claire, Camille, and I have ordered three puzzles from Walmart. One is a 1000 piece glitter puzzle that the girls are excited about. We also bought, shh, a fooze ball table (table soccer) for Paul's birthday which is coming up in a few weeks. We may decide to bring it out earlier, set it up right in the living room, and have some fun.
I have already bought Easter candy. We have coloring books. If the weather gets warmer, we can rake up the yard, clear out the flower box (the tulips are growing, so promising!), and putter around putting up some more solar lights. We are composting again, may as well plan for a garden, right?
I have been such an antsy person, always going here and there, so it's going to be a different life for a while, staying home. How about you?
