Tales from Exile: 12 March
After watching the President's briefing last night, my husband and I decided that it would be best to keep our daughter home from school for the time being. She is taking a drug for her Crohn's Disease that suppresses her immune system, so she will be quite susceptible to this Corona Virus. I felt so strange sending her teacher's emails letting the school know of our decision. I am sure that they thought that we were nut jobs, but only a few hours after school ended today, our governor closed schools for two weeks. The children are to report to school tomorrow to receive packets of work (that cannot be counted for or against them tomorrow. We'll just stay home, of course.
I spent several hours collecting food and household supplies this afternoon. We are well stocked up for the most part. I want to stay out of stores as much as possible in the coming weeks.
