My husband Jerry reminds me that we are not quarantined. We just are practicing social distancing. We are not going anywhere or having contact with anyone until there is no danger from the coronavirus..

It’s the two of us and our dog Jack together in our house—for who knows how long.

One day a week or so ago, when Jerry was being a bit cranking, I said, in jest, of course, “I am not sure I want to be quarantined with you.”

However, now that we are alone together, I count my blessings. I am very happy that I have a loving husband to stay at home with.

I am going to do my best to be thoughtful and kind to him.
