Two Weeks

I needed a break from my blog, but I’m back.

Two weeks ago today, feels like months, I flew home after cutting my trip to Chicago short. When I left Colorado on March 13, I had school events scheduled, a store event, and plans with friends.

Things changed, hour by hour, moment by moment. My school visits were canceled, and then schools were closed. Saturday, when the announcement that restaurants would be closing and stores were cleared of many staples, it became obvious I needed to change my flight home. I was afraid airports would be closed even for domestic travel.

The photos in this post are my flight AFTER the doors had been closed. The flight was just over 50% full and everyone had wipes, sanitizer, and a good attitude. Other flights near my gate were even emptier. One announcement said there were 25 passengers on a plane that held 150? and they asked people to spread out for the weight distribution. “One passenger per row, please.”

This is a strange and scary time. If you follow this blog, you know my last two weeks have revolved around Charlie. I’ll share more from my brief Chicago visit later this week, and lots of Charlie soon.

I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" features a creative and curious girl who loves science, her little brother, and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a MG novel and several picture books with STEM elements and dogs.

    1. Thanks. The first few days back were depressing, to say the least. I decided to just focus on what I could and let the rest go. I “never” miss a wordless Wednesday, but the first week I couldn’t even think about it and last week it was Thursday when I started to do it, not joking, so I realized I needed more time. I hope you’re well. I don’t think I’ve been reading many blogs either, but I’m sure you’re taking the precautions seriously. 🤗🤗

              1. Well, it’s an understatement to say that I wasn’t thrilled to have her come back to nyc, but she’s got a better mindset here than she would anywhere else, so there’s that….
