I’m not exactly a star in the kitchen, but I can pull together the basics. Covid has struck my family, so I spent Monday cooking a few meals to get them through the next couple of days. Then I drove to Sioux Falls to make the delivery.
When I parked in their driveway my daughter came out before I could even get out of the car. She is a respiratory therapist in a big and busy hospital, and was supposed to be at work. But she had just come home early because she isn’t feeling well. She was waiting to get a call back to schedule testing - which she had done early this morning.
We both kept our masks on and I handed over the food bags outdoors. No touching. We’re hoping that the symptoms for both her and her husband stay mild, and that none of the 3 kids get sick either. But I'm thinking I may be doing a little more cooking and delivering.
I did a short video chat this morning with her and the kids. I had to remind them all that they needed to be extra helpful and KIND to their mom since she isn't feeling well either. You can imagine how 7 year old twins and a 9 year old can get into mischief when they think no one is watching.
