The End of Quarantine...for now

5/26/2020 — cori
We have officially declared it, "The End of Quarantine." The shops are open again, for the most part. I'm even seeing alot of older people out and about again. Which, to me, says they feel safe enough to leave their houses periodically. Something we all long to do. Bennett went to the store with me for the first time in 2 months. Can you imagine not stepping foot in a store in over 2 months?! I even have a hair appointment scheduled. It has been 3 months and 2 weeks since my last hair coloring. It shows. They have opened at only 30% capacity, but they are open. This is the new world we live in. And air travel is picking up again. Thank God! Because it was so wonderful to have Gavin home after 5 months of not seeing each other.

He came to celebrate Bennett's graduation. Even though that meant sitting on the sofa watching it on a computer screen on a cold, gray, rainy May day. At least we were all doing it together.

He came just in time to help Chloe install her new stereo in her car. Honestly, it never would have gotten done without him. He's the only one who understands wires and stuff. It only took an hour. Now Chloe is driving around town with a touch screen, bluetooth stereo listening to her 80s rock'n'roll. She's a happy camper.

And it was hot enough to enjoy a bowl of ice cream on the back deck and play "Heads Up." Wild and crazy times, I tell ya. This game has us cracking up. These people are such cheaters!

Of course we made time to go to the park to hammock.

And it was one never-ending game of spike ball after another.

All together again. It feels so good. Until next time. Carpe Diem!
