hello to Uncle Al

Hello from NC. We evacuated an island and are now doing quarantine in NC. All mostly healthy. Saturday was our flight and then I think Monday UK was locked down, so we made it in the nick of time. Very stressed since then. Impossible to not make the decision we did when we did, but feeling very guilty now about ... basically breaking the rules. Only travel if absolutely necessary, etc. Plus just the I guess guilt to get out when we could, to come somewhere so much more cush, when many can't. Hope we didn't put anyone at unnecessary risk (3 plane loads of people), but shit, they were at Heathrowe just like us. I don't know. I guess just a shitty stressful situation no matter which way you cut it. Prayers up for everyone.

book club - meet me at the public library

we moved and I sold pretty much all my books. All my life up until now I was buying books basically just to fill up the shelves. Lots of goodwill titles in there. In some ways I guess it's fine to unload them but in others I miss having a meager library in the house. Well, a less meager library. I packed a few to London. The kids' shelves are still overflowing though, so I think that's nice. We probably packed 40 lbs of kids books.
