Quarantine Data Day

Today we're on Day 200 of self-quarantine, having spent 54.8% of the year away from gross people.

I think we have adapted quite well, adjusting socially to have one family at a time for dinner on our screen porch or doing activities that mostly involve the forest. We've taken two vacations (complete with pre- and post- quarantines) as a pod, taking advantage of the available rental stock on VRBO and other sites.

We've switched almost exclusively to grocery pre-order and pickup, although I still make a weekly early morning trip to Safeway for their soft, soft bagels and Coke Zero (surprisingly, there is still a Coke Zero shortage because production has switched to basic Coke to avoid any shortages of that grossness). I also hit Costco maybe once every two months for meats, but even that is more nice-to-have than anything.

Maia did not start Preschool this year, but she gets about 20 minutes of Khan Academy Kids time on the iPad every day and just learned about rhyming. She also kicks ass at those Washington Post Magazine puzzles where you have to spot all the differences between two photographs -- Waldo isn't going to stand a chance some day.

Rebecca and Maia have been planting tons of composted stuff this year, from volunteer tomatoes to peach trees, avocado pits, and 12 tiny squirrels. Our fig tree is out of control, engulfing the sidewalk by our driveway like a leafy octopus.

How is your 2020 going?
