Just checking in. How is everyone? I am now living with my unemployed husband and three of our four kids (they’re all employed and able to work remotely) which is much better than when it was just me and Sophie.

That said, my oldest son is still in India which makes me nervous and I find the news routinely overwhelming.

To soothe my nerves, I’ve been watching The Expanse and reruns of Scrubs–still the most accurate show about hospitals ever–and reading romances. (I am currently reading The Ruin of Evangeline Jones by Julia Bennet which is SO. GOOD.

How about you? Staying sane? We’re here for you!

I don’t know about you but I am anxious. And spending the vast majority of my time by myself–my husband’s medical practice is open but I am social distancing and thus just hanging out with my dog. (Sophie is THE best.)

When I’m not working, I talk to friends and family, but I keep just wanting more. More community, more “it’s not just me,” more interaction.

So this page is for that. If you feel like you want a place to chat, we’re here. AAR readers are here. Let’s make this easier by getting through it together.

(And no arguing. This is place for support and connection only.)
