- 10:55 AM - April
- Have the days
morphed into August? It's in the 90s all week this
week. What happened? Time to take out the pool and get
the kids jazzed for a new quarantine
- How fortunate are
we. I mean... how incredibly fortunate to have this
backyard... this much space. This pool is crazy big.
It's a 15 foot circle and 2 1/2 feet deep? Man - it's
awesome. We also pulled off something pretty awesome
yesterday: company. That's the great thing about being
friends with other immuno-compromised families: we're
all in the same boat. If you're on full lockdown and
we're on full lockdown? We're friends. Your house is
safe, your car is safe and our house is safe. So the
kids can just be kids.
- Jesse and Megan
are friends I connected with last summer and their kid
Jack was spotlit in Fastest Delorean 2 as a PSA to
other parents as I say fuck a whole lot. Cute
opening to the movie. Jack was a NICU baby and barely
made it so even years later they're UBER careful. So
after talking about it for over a month we decided to
just jump. We're basically trusting each other with
the lives of our kids, and it's a little terrifying,
but the idea that we have a family that we can share
this quarantine with is pretty special. And poor Jack
is an only child who hadn't had kid to kid contact in
6 weeks. FAAAAAAACKIN HELL. To say the kids had fun is
to say the least.
- To say that diet
I was starting is getting delayed a few days is
also to say the least. These considerate fuckers
brought whiskey, brownies and pizza. Oh it was a fun
day. It felt like summer. It felt completely normal.
Not even a THOUGHT of the pandemic and social
distancing and constant fear. We're bonded now and I'm
thrilled for everyone involved. Especially Jack who is
an only child. Vienna and Cam are inseparable and I
cannot imagine a little boy energy being bounced
around from parent to parent. Whew.
- Good times. A
bright spot in this crazy year.
