I just cannot deal with this.

I had promised myself that I would write every day. Today is day 14 and we have just been told that the lockdown has been extended until May 3rd. We are getting used to staying home. Not ideal but I feel that we are keeping ourselves relatively safe. I ventured out to get some more…

Day 2-Shelter in place
