In The Time Of Covid

So...the boy was back at school Tuesday, per the CDC guidelines. By the end of the day, however, the middle school had been shutdown due to Covid outbreak (apparently, he wasn't the only one whose been sick with the 'rona...nearly a third of the kids in his class, plus several teachers). Since yesterday we have been back to Zoom learning, and here we'll stay for the remainder of the week.

Remarkably (*knock on wood*) no one else in our home has contracted the virus. Sofia continues to attend school (I'm waking her up in about 15 minutes).

The fam is leaving town anyway for a few days: heading to Orlando to visit Disney World. The kids are at a point where they're both tall enough to ride everything, but they're still young enough to appreciate and enjoy such things. Heck, I'm excited myself...though my enthusiasm can't help being damped by the costs and stresses involved in such an excursion. Just finding a place for the beagle for the week has been a major chore. 

Anyway. I hate these little nothing updates, but I don't know when I'll get a chance to scribe another gaming post anytime soon. Apologies.


  1. I hope you and your family enjoy themselves. Though the last thing I would want to do is visit a crowded venue like Disney World in a pandemic (that you just had a taste of).

    1. I hear you on that. Though according to Florida protocols, my son is now considered "immune." We will certainly be cautious.

  2. Have fun. I'm hoping my kids are like me and not into Disney. But with its strangle hold on media not likely.

    I picked up the Onward RPG box set. But never opened it. I'm actually surprised Disney hasn't tried to capitalize on the D&D craze with a Kingdom Hearts pen and paper rpg.
