Opening my eyes this morning, I wasn't sure what I was seeing. It took a few moments for me to recognize that it's a motel room.

Strange, cramped and inconvenient, it's yet another "new normal" for my family and me. At least we know that it could be worse (and it may, in fact, worsen as things unfold), and that we didn't bring this on ourselves.
