COVID-19 Chronicles: Day 348

Look, I get it. I do. You spend a majority of your time at work. Therefore you spend that same amount of time with your co-workers. And humans are social beings, so naturally you’ll socialize with those co-workers, especially during this global pandemic known only as: COVID-19. There are more reasons why you should not dateContinue reading “COVID-19 Chronicles: Day 348”

COVID-19 Chronicles: Day 317

I don’t know about anyone else but I started tracking COVID-19 from December 31, 2019 as my beginning of the global pandemic. Since it’s not “going away” any time soon, I’m thinking that instead of continuing with A.D. (anno domini) the year of the Lord, we should transition to A.C. (After COVID-19) And the yearsContinue reading “COVID-19 Chronicles: Day 317”

COVID-19 Chronicles: Day 268

Where is the love, y’all? I’m not just talking about the Black Eyed Peas collaboration featuring Justin Timberlake. I’ve noticed about a month ago that patience, understanding, compassion, and love have but gone away since Washington State’s Safe Start. Goodness … year 2020 A.D. has been brutal, to say the least. Honestly, I will referContinue reading “COVID-19 Chronicles: Day 268”

COVID-19 Chronicles: Day 219

Masks are all the rage nowadays. Oh wait … that should read mask wearing to some is enraging nowadays! In my corner of the USA, #UpperLeft, Washington State Governor Jay Inslee issued an Executive Order that masks are required in public while maintaining physical distancing of 6 feet from non-household members (2 meters) – notContinue reading “COVID-19 Chronicles: Day 219”

Six Feet Apart

As I predicted, Washington State Governor Jay Inslee extended the Executive Order expiration from May 4, Monday to … May 31, 2020, Sunday. He was able to coax Washingtonians to hole up in their homes in March. Once that was accomplished keeping us there is a matter of extensions. I’m not upset, I just wantedContinue reading “Six Feet Apart”

COVID-19 Chronicles: Day 118

A little over a week remains of Governor Jay Inslee’s Stay-At-Home Executive Order extension … The initial duration was to expire on April 6th, but extended to May 4th, Monday. A #ManicMonday nonetheless! Also, it’s Star Wars Day: May The Fourth Be With You. Washingtonians are divided over their opinion on the subject. In MyContinue reading “COVID-19 Chronicles: Day 118”

A Message of Hope: We’re Going On A Bear Hunt

Sing! Sing these words: The other day … I met a bear. I joke, I digress. A couple of days ago, WCP and I were driving to the Marysville Winco for essential grocery shopping for ourselves. As we were driving, she pipes up. “Hey Lamp, what’s with the teddy bears in the windows of houses?”Continue reading “A Message of Hope: We’re Going On A Bear Hunt”

COVID-19 Chronicles: Day 98

As of today, Washington State is no longer in the top 10 in any of the metrics used for #COVID19 statistical tracking: total cases, active cases, new cases, new deaths or total deaths. However, the United States is still at the top of the chart for the entire world with 385,000 cases which is aContinue reading “COVID-19 Chronicles: Day 98”

Until Further Notice …

Another phrase has been incorporated into the COVID-19 global pandemic lexicon: until further notice. Our leaders had projected dates of this week or somewhat close to that for libraries, YMCA, and so many more (March 30th, April 6th, etc) I’m now reading or discovering those dates have been pushed aside in favor of the blanketContinue reading “Until Further Notice …”
