April 2020 (366)

May 1, 2020

Weirdest April Ever. Guam is still currently locked down but there’s a faint light that can be seen at the end of the tunnel. For the whole month of April we were stuck at home and in doing so, we were able to get a handle on the virus out here. Guam’s hospitals are under-equipped in normal times and would have been overwhelmed almost immediately had the coronavirus hit any harder. Our numbers have been great these past couple of weeks with many days in a row with zero new cases, even after testing was expanded.

What’s May gonna look like for us? Probably a lot of the same. There’s no official word yet, but I’m counting on the boys finishing up the school year at home. And yes, I will probably still completely space on some of Silas’s Google Classroom Meets. (Okay, but I know I’m not the only one.) Steve should still be alternating weeks working at home and working on base which is one of the biggest reasons I haven’t had a complete breakdown during all of this. And Yara will probably be walking by the end of the month.

I left the house exactly two times in April and am hoping to double that number in May.
