    If my county goes 15 days without a new case, then maybe. We’re 1 day without a new case now and I’ve been so impressed with our county health officials in how transparent they’ve been.

    It’s just hard. You can tell M misses them. He’s never been interested in FaceTime before. They usually watch him 5 days a week. The week of spring break he was there 2 days so I could get some organizing done. Then last week he was there the 1 day I had to go into the office and R hadn’t been set up to WFH. Even last week they said how much they missed him. Like they get it and agree with what we’re doing. But ugh.

    My aunt and my cousin "met" for lunch by going to a take out place and sitting in their cars with their windows open parked a couple of spaces away from each other. I thought it was pretty clever and at least it's some version of human almost-contact (my cousin lives alone and has been in quarantine for over a week).

    The other thing is my parents aren’t really social distancing. They’ve both just started working from home, which is great. But they’re also still going to the damn grocery store like every day. My mom went to 5 or 6 stores just yesterday looking for certain items. So I’m looking at it like the three of us are 13 days into being pretty strictly self isolated (we’ve had groceries delivered twice, and N went to a drive-through CVS for my inhaler) and meanwhile they’re constantly sitting at 0 days.

    Well I think the tornado tried to help you there, but got a little clumsy.

    Re: all the grandparent stuff. We’re right there with you. E usually sees IL’s 5X week and asks about them every day. We are trying to FaceTime but she doesn’t get it/hides her face. We’ll just keep trying. My parents and siblings are all co-mingling everyday, eating out, going to stores and work (work not being a choice but still). They keep posting on FB about how serious this is and how people need to go back to the “good old days” and teach your kids life lessons through this, but they’re not social distancing at all. At least IL’s aren’t really going anywhere, got one curbside grocery and are eating all their meals at home. FIL said he even wore kitchen gloves to put gas in the car.

    So, unless something drastic changes, we are planning on seeing IL’s for Easter since the 5 of us will have all been isolated for a long time. I know my family is going to freak out when IL’s get to see us but they don’t.

    We have our 20 week u/s Monday and we were thinking about maybe letting my mom watch E during the appt but have decided against it. Really glad I didn’t mention it or get their hopes up.

    We're having grandparent withdrawals too. We've been facebook calling a lot but S usually spends Saturday night at their house and he misses that.

    My stupid father in FL, my stepmother, and their friends are getting takeout and then eating together. They feel comfortable doing so because they "know them well." I cannot get them to see how this is unacceptable. :wall:

    Take out fine, just put it in your own bowl at home and wash your hands/toss containers, gatherings with friends that don't live with you, bad . Unfortunately this is lost on a lot of people because this is just so unprecedented.

    My ultramarathon was canceled.
    I am relived because there was no way I’d be able to safely continue to log the miles I would need to in order to be ready for it.

    I’ll pick one when all of this is over. Until then I’m going to not tax my body with running 45-55 miles a week anymore.

    I’m glad you’re staying safe!

    One of our local fave restaurants is doing pickup bake-at-home stuff. I’m so happy to have their pot pie, lasagna, and egg bake coming my way. One of the great things about staying here for three more years is that I’ll be able to continue supporting these places we’ve loved so much while consuming so, so much cheese.

    Pro tip: Put together your Amazon Fresh order in the evening while your husband is still awake, then wait and click order early in the morning so you actually get a delivery window possibility.

    I get to see my parents today... through the car window as I leave their groceries in the garage, but it still counts!

    My hairdresser's birthday was yesterday. She went and got takeout from a steakhouse with her parents and son. They sat in 2 spaced out cars with the windows open to eat.
