Two years ago, I went with my dad and brother to the Grand Canyon. We stopped for breakfast at a tiny restaurant in the little town closest to the park. I was expecting pretty bad tourist food, but I got the best huevos rancheros I've ever had.
This is my attempt to recreate it. Pork and green chilis, poached egg. It wasn't nearly as good, but still pretty good.
My wife is handling the stay-at-home order just fine. She is living her preferred life of avoiding strangers and the outside. I am struggling, but I'm okay if I can still go out for food shopping and see sun.
But my 6-year-old daughter is climbing the walls. She is literally running around in circles for something to do with her pent-up energy. This must feel like torture to her.
But will they remember when time comes to fund our salaries?
Schools are closed for two weeks and I can deal, but a lot of my kids cannot. We have kids whose home lives are a sick joke, and this closure is a kick to the gut. Politicians are talking about increasing the closure to eight weeks, and they should know that is so much more than four times worse. Lives are going to be ruined because of this closure.
