Here we are, the first official Tuesday of April – here’s hoping that April won’t feel so laboriously long like March did. There’s one day less in the month, so maybe it will only feel like 3/4 of a year instead of a full year. 

How are things in your neck of the woods? Have you managed to maintain a semblance of sanity while hunkering down, waiting for the curve to flatten? Are you and yours staying safe and healthy?

Well, it’s official – our State Governor announced earlier on Monday that the in-person classes at public, private and charter K-12 will be closed through the end of the school year, but schools will continue distance learning through the end of the school year (for us that means mid-June). So Little Dude will be continuing his online learning for the rest of the year. Poor guy, he loves going to school! But I totally get it – think about it, if we cram the kids back into overcrowded classrooms too soon, the curve will probably spike back up and continue to put way too many people at risk. I’d rather be safe than sorry.

Friday is April’s first semi-monthly grocery shopping for me – my hubby keeps asking if I have to go, because he doesn’t want me to potentially be infected. At the same time, he’s getting low on his ‘usual’ items that I pick up twice a month – plus I need to pick up the typical meal planning stuff that I’d be picking up to make sure everyone is fed until the next shopping day of the 25th rolls around.

I actually reinstated my account with HomeChef a couple of weeks ago (even though it puts a bigger dent in my grocery budget than just grocery shopping) to try to ‘cut down’ on the need to actually go into a grocery store (I do utilize Walmart Grocery Pickup, but have learned (the hard way) not to include fresh produce – I have gotten terrible quality fresh produce when someone else is picking it for me) which means I need to go inside someplace like Safeway (who doesn’t have curbside pickup in our area yet, and I’m not willing to drive an hour one-way to go to one that does).

Unfortunately HomeChef uses OnTrac delivery, and whoever the delivery person is in our area has apparently had trouble figuring out where the delivery addresses are, based on feedback from other people in my tiny town when I posted the conundrum on our local Facebook page. My box for last week was marked as delivered to ‘my’ front porch, but it was nowhere on our property, or delivered to any of our neighbors, for that matter. So who knows where it actually ended up.

Sure hope whoever got my delivery enjoyed their Hot Honey Salmon with zucchini and tomatoes for 4, and the Steak Strip Provolone Pretzel Roll Sandwiches with pickled vegetables and herbed oven fries for 4 (with the add-on/extra cost of extra steak strips for the sandwiches). Luckily HomeChef gave me full credit for the missing box, so I ‘un-skipped’ a future delivery to see if hopefully this time I’ll actually get my box delivered to my door.

Meanwhile, I have to face the music and go get some things on Friday, so I’ll be gloved and masked up when I do. Looks like Washington State appears to be doing something right, as the last few days it looks like the upward spike has started to flatten out. We need to continue to flatten that curve! I read that sadly this week and next week will probably be the worst weeks for the numbers of infected and numbers of death – I really really hope this thing turns around soon, this ‘hurry-up-and-wait’ and living in limbo is so not fun.

What is fun is random funnies – let’s do that, m’kay?

This cracked me up:

With all the shelter-in-place orders, and kids doing school from home, this cracked me up:

This is actually a good idea, if mine weren’t already matched and organized:

  1. The one with the cat? I love that! And I think having to put the plastic stuff together is a genius idea for homeschooling. Our schools were on Spring break from March 9th to the 13th, and they haven’t been back. Will be closed at least till May 4.

  2. Heeheehee! Schrodinger’s virus, that’s great, they all are. Hope you can get your deliveries straight soon.

    Stay safe!

  3. Stacy,

    Staying home is the best thing right now. The COVID-19 outbreak is serious no question but I wonder if that plus the flu is what makes the health crisis the biggest concern. It’s two biggies striking at the same time packing a wallop size death punch to the mix. Do suit up properly when you go out. Hopefully we won’t have to make any trips to the store for a couple of weeks. I enjoyed your laughs. That bear cracks me up!

  4. Yes it is and it sucks. I hate being a content creator instead of a teacher. LOL. Nice memes. Thanks for hosting and I hope that you have a wonderful week.
