    Home Sweet Home

    March 20, 2020 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 36 °F

    It sure felt good to see the house when the Uber driver turned into our cul-de-sac around 5:00p. He made excellent time getting us home from DEN. I’ve got to hand it to CDOT ... they know how to clear the roads after a snowstorm.

    Mui had adjusted the thermostat remotely from BOS, so the house gave us a toasty welcome ... good under the circumstances as it was only about 26F outside.

    Leaving the bags in the garage — to be disinfected tomorrow before we start unpacking — I headed inside for a hot shower to get rid of all the travel grime. Mui hopped in the car and went to Walmart to provision us as best as he could until he can get to the commissary tomorrow. We mostly need fresh goods, milk, etc ... canned and dry stuff is already in the pantry. And we have plenty of TP and a Toto bidet ... so no worries 😉

    The plan is for us to self-quarantine for the next 14 days ... just in case.

    That doesn’t mean we’ll be in solitary confinement. We plan to take advantage of the warming temps forecasted for next week to take some long walks here in our community. There’s a nice trail that runs by our house that will make it easy for us to get some fresh air ... while we continue to distance ourselves from others ... even after our self-quarantine is over.

    Though the trip is over, I’m going to keep writing. Maybe a “mock trip” on FP ... “Life During the Coronavirus Crisis” ???
