Quarantine Day 26

I haven’t left my house in over 3 weeks. At first I was just trying to stay in because of the flu, or what I assumed was the flu, & the baby. I was more concerned about the flu than COVID-19. That was before we knew it spread to the US. That was before Italy locked down. I was wrong. Maybe it’s part of my generation. I’m a millennial. We haven’t experienced anything like this before. We have this idea that we are invincible. But I’ve got to admit. I’m scared. Hopefully it’s not as bad as it seems. Hopefully it is just media hype. I’m seriously doubting that, though.

My daughter has been home from school. We’re trying to do this homeschooling thing again. I hate it. The work they gave us is too small to read. Her recorder is still at school. I don’t even know how to do common core math, but we’re pushing on.

I’m not the type of person who likes to give up my God-given & constitutional rights. Benjamin Franklin once said: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” Some people believe that quote was taken out of context & I’m not here to argue semantics. I’ve quoted this many times because I do believe in it. However, I don’t want to cut my nose off to spite my face. That is, I don’t want to die just to be able to say I was free to do as I please. If the government doesn’t force people to stay home, those people who defy the request will force you to be sick, & maybe to even die. Effectively giving up one freedom for another. I’m not about that. I want to get past this virus & I want to regain some normalcy.

Wanderlusting in Isolation

It’s crazy, starting a travel-ish blog while isolated at home due to COVID-19, the novel coronavirus of 2020. Worst case scenario, aside from dying or having a loved one die, is that we’re never able to travel again. That’s not my plan, however. We’re going to get through this because we’re being smart about it. We’re “social distancing.” I hate that term. Maybe I’m getting old, but redefining words & terms & making stuff up as we go has become super annoying. Be that as it may, it’s an accurate term for “Stay 6 feet away.”

I never really traveled much in my life. I went to Jamaica once over 15 years ago. Aside from that, I’ve only poked around on the east coast. I met my husband in 2018 & we fast tracked to a marriage & a honeymoon baby. She’s now 2 months old as of this post. My husband has traveled the world & has brought me along on some of his more local travels. We frequent Florida, where we’re both from, & went to Hawaii on our honeymoon.

For as far back as I can remember, I’ve wanted to travel the world. I’ve lusted after mostly tropical paradises. I’ve longed for Santorini. & most recently, I’ve been eyeing the Swiss Alps. I never had the time nor the means to travel before, & now that I do, I have children to care for. That is not going to stop me; however. We will navigate traveling the world with & without the children. & that is the story I plan to share with whomever reads this blog.
