Coronavirus April 12

Posted on 04/12/2020 in misc

Like everybody else, the pandemic is "top of mind" 24 x 7 for me. I'm writing to help myself not internalize all of it. You can find other posts in the series at

Today is officially one month of social isolation for us. We decided on March 11 that the next day would be Michelle’s last at work and that we were going into lockdown.

My day:

2 hours of Out of the Park Baseball. I’m expecting to get fired after this season as I have the Red Sox solidly in last place in July 2021. Chris Sale was out for 9 weeks with a pulled hamstring.

Talked to my Mom for an hour.

Went for a 5.5 mile (ca. 9 km) walk and started on the American Dirt audiobook. I’m already sucked in - about 12 more hours to go @ 125% of normal speed.

Michelle got advance warning from a friend in the grocery biz that hams might be hard to find in the weeks leading up to Easter, so we bought ours 3 weeks ago. So we at least had a traditional Easter dinner of ham, sweet potato, cranberry sauce, corn, and cornbread, with an apple pie for dessert.

I think the plan for tonight is to watch a movie, although we haven’t picked on yet.

The plan changed - we watched three episodes of Season 4 of The Expanse.

I like hearing from readers, all three of you! Nobody comments on blogs anymore, and I'd rather not use Facebook or Twitter as a comment system so it's back to the email.
