Meanwhile in Oregon…

Go Jules Go Meanwhile in Oregon title graphic 18MAR20

Hey! What’s up? Oh, me? Nothing much. You know. JUST THE USUAL PANDEMIC / UNPRECEDENTED CRISIS WHERE I PANIC ABOUT TOILET PAPER EVEN MORE THAN USUAL AND WONDER IF I’LL EVER SEE MY PARENTS AGAIN AND WHY GOD WHY DIDN’T I INVEST IN PURELL and… sorry? What was that?

In all seriousness, I hope if you’re reading this, you’re safe and sound AND FLATTENING THE CURVE; DEAR BABY CHIPMUNKS JUST STAY HOME. I’m proud, but not surprised, to say that my adopted central Oregon community is rallying like it’s Black Friday and our favorite child just asked for a Tickle-Me Elmo. Everyone wants to help, and it’s a beautiful thing to see.

Speaking of beautiful things to see, here’s a clip from last night, when I shamelessly invented a new “dog enrichment toy” for my Genius Doodle, Uncle Jesse (who turns 10 on Friday!!! and just EASILY ran 20 miles because we thought we were training for a marathon in April, but obviously it was canceled because plague #plantpoweredpooch):

So…how are you?

  1. Glad to hear you’re doing okay. I’m just over here stressing the eff out because my wedding is in 6 weeks and everything, right now, is closed….. I’ll just be over here crying until it settles down.

    1. I’m so, so sorry, Sandy!! It keeps hitting me in waves: Oh, now this is canceled, oh, now people can’t do this, oh, no, what about all of the people who […]

      If rain on your wedding day is good luck, then a pandemic means your marriage will last for 52792.16 lifetimes.

  2. Hanging in, hanging out, hanging on. Husband is teleworking and driving me crazy … but we’re safe and have toilet paper. What more can ask from an apocalypse?

  3. I bought a 36 pack of TP (the only size available). I said to the saleslady, “That should last for the next month”. She said, “I hope longer than that!” To which I replied, “Lady, not with this pandemic scaring the crap out of me!”

  4. I like to casually walk into work, yawn and say, “What’s up? Anything going on?” just to mess with people.

    I’m working remotely starting today. (which is why I’m currently leaving you a comment on your blog…haha!) Both kids are home and they have to start schoolwork Monday. I shit you not, this is our schedule Monday: Julia Zoom meeting 10:30 with math class, Christian: Zoom meeting 10-11 AM for English, me: Zoom meeting 9-10:30. It’s Zoom insanity around here!

    How are you holding up? Uncle Jesse? miss you!

    1. I’m adding ‘Zoom’ to the list of things I should have invested in, along with Charmin and Netflix! Standing O to all of our teachers for making this happen, by the way… crazy town! I can’t wait to catch up; how does 10:31am on Zoom sound?
