How’re you all doing out there? Are you going stir-crazy, or are you enjoying your time at home? I admit, I love having all of us under the same roof again.
It’s not all perfect, of course. We’ve had to make a few adjustments. I could hear my voice getting tighter and higher-pitched, so instead of driving us all crazy, I decided to write down some "House Rules" for Cohabitating during this COVID-19 crisis. As I was doing this, it occurred to me that you might be having a similar situation at your house, so in the interest of public health and safety (and not going
crazy), I thought I'd share.
These are extraordinary times, so I’m giving you all a rare peek at the actual state of play at The Ponderosa. No tidying, no styling. This is us trying to live by some new House Rules for keeping everyone safe (mostly from me because I will kill them if they don’t co-operate).
1. Seriously, take off your shoes! OK, the entry Hall looks pretty tidy (mostly because practically nobody uses it). Stay with me… You already know that most household germs come in via our shoes, but we rarely take them off. In Asia, no one would ever dream of walking their dirty shoes into your home. Unthinkable!
Did you see the movie “Parasite”? Remember the scene when the Tutor first arrives at the house and automatically hops into a pair of slippers left in a basket near the front door? I was like… of course! That's how you do it. I found these on Amazon. So far, only a few of our guests have used them, preferring to just wear their socks. And now we have no guests, but hopefully, this new rule will stick!
