Looking out for each other

Dated: May 3 2020

“Home” means something different, and my family and I use our house differently in the midst of Coronavirus isolation. Now it’s the place where you don’t need a mask, and you don’t think consciously about which surfaces to touch. When I come through the front door after a trip to the grocery, discard my mask and wash my hands, I breathe a bit more easily. We’ve been doing more in the back yard than we used to during “normal” life, and the dining room has turned into my wife’s speech pathology office for distance therapy/enrichment.

How has social distancing affected your home life? Is your house or apartment still meeting your needs? If there are any ways I can be helpful to you (as a Realtor or as a friend)—I hope you’ll let me know. We will come through this experience with a deeper appreciation for our homes and for our friends, if we all look out for each other.
