Gratitude in Attitude
In New York the virus is still strong whereas in other parts of the country it is more manageable. 52 days of being inside and not going out has been easier than we expected in our family consisting of me, my wife and our 11 year old daughter. We all get along very well and enjoy each others’ company. I imagine that there are some whose scenarios are not so peachy. So I feel very grateful for what we have.
My brother and his wife were very kind and offered to send us Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds liquid detergent which was much appreciated. This detergent is multipurpose which could be useful when being required to stay inside. It is important to have resources that fit the need and if possible, have a couple different functions because of limited space.
Surviving the Virus
And speaking of limited space, my wife and daughter were focused yesterday on a major cleanup of my daughter’s room. My daughter still has toys from when she was very young so there was a lot of stuff to get rid of. I meanwhile washed dishes, did the laundry and other weekend activities. The Coronavirus may be still strong here in Manhattan, but we are very fortunate having each other which makes beating it a lot easier.
