Just Stay Home – Don’t be a Covidiot – Day 11

4:10 PM 3/26/20 – 84 (!) cases (up from 54 this morning). Gaahhh – that escalated quickly. I wiped the doorknobs down again. I am really very ill prepared to be a germaphobe. I found out today I am supposed to be cleaning my groceries. Which seriously hadn’t occurred to me. So yikes. I did […]

Just stay home (Back the f*** up) – Day 10

7:30 PM 3/24/19: 41 Cases in Chester County (up from 30 the last time I looked) – 4 in my parents’ township, 1 in mine – 0 deaths (I like that part) [I might be checking more than once a day.] 11:35 AM 3/25/19: Still 41. Still 0. 🤞 I went to Target this morning. […]

Just stay home (like this piggy) – Day 9

I woke up this morning to this headline: Texasx Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick suggests he, other seniors willing to die to get economy going again I am about 110% sure that is not true. And I am not up for sacrificing any seniors for the sake of the stock market. Nope. That is not a […]

Just Stay Home (are you doing it?) – Day 8

We are up to 21 cases in Chester County. Every time I check the dashboard (only once a day ) and the number goes up it’s another one of those little punches in the gut. Edit: I checked again and it’s 30 now…and one in Upper Uwchlan. So – it’s here :( I know that […]

Just Stay Home (Seriously – this is important) – Day 7

I checked the county dashboard and we are up to 18 cases, with 3 in the township next to mine. None in my actual township yet, but I’m sure that’s coming. I was listening to Rachel Maddow from Friday (via Podcast) and she was talking about how the NY hospitals are quickly being overwhelmed. I […]

Just Stay Home (even if it’s not legally required yet) – Day 6

I spent the morning cleaning my house. Wiping door handles with antibacterial cleaner. Scaring the dog with the Swiffer WetJet. She hates that thing. I am terrified that my child brought germs from California. I really hope she didn’t, but I have to act like she did. Looking at my kid as a risk is […]

Just stay home – Day 5

One more thing. As each section of life shuts down it’s just one more thing. We are fine. These are all the right moves. I am trusting in the process. But one more effing thing. And then another. Last night we got a notice that all non-life-sustaining businesses were to shut down in the state […]
