Christmas From Quarantine

(01/06/22 7:20am)

It was going to be a normal Christmas. My family had plans to spend the holiday in New Hampshire with extended family, which — despite the surge of the omicron variant across the country — seemed reasonable enough with the right precautions.

(11/09/21 10:10am)
