I have looked forward to October arriving for a long time. It is one of my favorite months. The leaves are changing; our schedule is usually stable and working; we have two birthdays to celebrate; and it marks the beginning of the holiday season for our family. This year October arrived with a good dose of crazy as well. Why not, after all, it is 2020! COVID-19 has struck the White House, as the entire world knows, and it has struck much closer to home within our dance studio. One of Anne's friends now has COVID-19. She got it on an airplane returning from a memorial for a family member who died from COVID-19. Her entire family is sick, with her mother being the sickest. We did not see them after they were exposed and they are in quarantine. It appears that the spread was contained to their family and hasn't spread through the dance studio. Our prayers are with them.
My husband sent a photo of his newest look at work. He now has two microphones that he wears most of the time, one for Zoom meetings and one for phone calls. I don't know how he keeps them apart in the rush of the day. Working in a hospital is not for the faint of heart these days.
