As I sit here six months into the Coronavirus Pandemic, things are still far from being back to normal. My college freshman (Go UCF Knights!) is home all day doing online classes and so is my 16-year old high school junior. My husband who works in film production and usually travels all over the country, has barely worked the past six months, and I can’t concentrate because everyone is home and all quiet areas are [...]
