Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

Their area has a few hundred thousand people. It's not rural. And @Zella has noted that cases there are on the rise. 

I think it's stupid for the entire family going out on GrubHub runs, but what do I know? 

Yes, the NWA metro area has over 1/2 a million people in it. I have no idea how big his territory is that he drives, but it's definitely not the middle of nowhere. (I, on the other hand, live in a neighboring county and am in the middle of nowhere. Nearest neighbor is over 1/2 a mile away.)

It's not as bad as in the central part of the state here, but both counties that the NWA metro area is in are among the handful of Arkansas counties that have more than 75 cases. As of right now, Benton Co. has had 110 cases and Washington County 90, though testing requirement are pretty strict in Arkansas due to limited supplies. No telling how many are roaming around with it asymptomatically. 

And Arkansas is slowly reopening right now. To the governor's credit, he does seem to be trying to do it cautiously, but in my humble opinion, it's a losing battle, no matter how many well-meaning safeguards are in place. I would definitely be exercising more caution than they are.

So, Jill's status as GrubHub ridealong is official now. I wonder how Derick feels about that. I often get the impression he relishes his time away from Jill, and now even GrubHub is no longer a refuge. 

Maybe she will learn how to tip delivery people

no  it appears to be Voice of the  Martyrs, a publication for/about persecuted Christians

and one of the books is titled "and then I had kids"

the titles are carefully staged here for the pic

where is this setting in the Dillard house?

Just saw it in the background, of a video in her Instagram stories. It’s in the living room.

She reminds me of myself when mine were little.  They are in their 50s now.  I was a SAHM and I made them nap after lunch until they went to school all day!  I told them they didn't have to sleep, they just had to stay in bed.  I gave them a book or a little car.  99 percent of the time they fell asleep.

Between this and the ones of Jinger which reappeared yesterday, why do the Duggar girls neglect their skin?  Jill was looking better when she used the free skincare from her "friend."  Why did she not buy more when that ran out?  She looks like she is wearing yesterday's makeup in this video.  Effective skincare is not expensive.

If it was that Rodan and Fields stuff from her "friend", that shit is expensive. She may not be able to afford it every month.

Yeah, Rodan and Fields is overpriced, but most skincare when used correctly lasts.  Of course, Jill is probably too dumb to make the connection that washing her face nightly with a less expensive cleanser would get the same results.  She could easily buy the Walmart version of Cetaphil or Cerave cleanser or Johnson and Johnson's head-to-toe baby wash.  I've been working on the large bottle of Cerave foaming cleanser for at least 6 months now.  I honestly don't remember when I started using it let alone when I bought it.  I do have the tendency to buy skincare well before I actually need it.  I buy products I know I will use and I know will keep when I have the money.  That way I don't have to drop a ton of cash to replenish.

Even just getting Cetaphil or Cerave at WM wouldn't be cost-prohibitive for her. I mainly use Burt's Bees products since I have really sensitive skin, but I also use Cetaphil and just get it from Wally World for about $10, and those bottles last awhile since it's 16 ounces. I've purchased giant packs of 3 at Sam's Club for reasonable prices too. 

So, I think if she couldn't go the Rodan and Fields route, she could still get okay stuff from Wal-Mart and not break the budget.

I know this was mentioned upthread, but I'm stunned that Jill is aware of The Wizard of Oz.  Don't fundies think  of wizards and witches as demonic?  My guess is the movie holds some pleasant childhood memories for Derick and he probably wanted his kids to see it.

Or Derick suggested Jill Google it. They only mentioned Kansas and Dorothy, so it's possible Jill knows nothing more about it than a movie description.

She really does look awful- as in “I have a terrible flu, haven’t slept all night, stressed out” awful. (Not awful because she is unattractive)
 

Common sense really isn’t common, and honestly if you don’t grow up in a milieu where things like grooming and skincare where just a part of life, and you don’t have any interest in it, you just don’t get how much difference it can make in your sense of well being and appearance. 
 

You have no idea how many grown ass people with typical IQs had cracked bleeding hands or peeling skin and they never bothered to exfoliate or buy LOTION because they didn’t grow up in a world where everyone used lotion or body butter as just a daily body care product. Yet they are uncomfortable and peely- and are bothered by it......I’m like “ummm exfoliate and use body butter like everyone else”(to me that’s just common sense, but no it wasn’t common to them at all). I see Jill being a person like that.

Jill is an incredibly well lotion-ed person. Five or six nights a week, from what I hear.

That's if the headship gets his way. Apparently, she only wants lotion 3 or 4 times a week. 😁

I think it's the bandana, braid, and for a millennial, the nose ring. Seriously Jill's always had a little bit of a hippie esthetic to her fashion sense. If I didn't know who she is,  it wouldn't surprise me to learn she was a hipster/hippie based on some of the things she wears.

That would be me. Although my hands weren't as cracked before I started washing them all the time.

She might just know the reference in regards to tornadoes without having seen the movie. I know that Rosebud is the sled but I've never watched Citizen Kane.

What I always found interesting about Jill is that she would invite people out to her church or make posts encouraging people to find a church. The Duggars attend a church that is closed off from the public I believe  (I think it was at their house at one point?)

Yes, that stuck out to me as well.  At one point she and Derick were even posting that visitors could find them and sit with them if they were coming alone or afraid of taking the plunge. I remember thinking that was kind of risky considering their followers range from those who hate them to those who might be a little too obsessed. I can’t see any of the other Duggars extending an invitation like that, if they have I’ve forgotten about it.

That was fine in grade school but once I hit puberty and everything got greasy I was probably pretty gross. It took several months of pretty severe bullying to get me to pull my hygiene up to snuff, and even then I had to ask my mom to buy face wash and deodorant for me to use. And my parents were pretty good overall. Jill had cheap, communal products, shitty parents, and a household ethos that seemed to be “Just cover the blemishes up with makeup“ rather than “take care of your skin so the blemishes don’t develop in the first place.”

As to the broader point about common sense, I think sometimes we forget that Jill is literally just now learning how to be an adult. It’s been a steep learning curve. I choose to applaud her for the progress she has made (making new friends, going to new places, putting the boys in public school, using birth control) rather than focus on the backwards steps that have come along the way. I really think she is trying to be a good friend, mom, wife, and person. Even her religious posts don’t bother me. She’s not preaching hellfire and brimstone or being pushy, just sharing part of her life that is important to her. I get the sense that out of all the married girls Jill has the most compassion and love for others. Jinger and Jessa preach about it but I think Jill really feels it.

I’m sorry you had to go through that- puberty is hard enough as it is and that kind of bullying can be really brutal. 
 

I do think Jill does have a big heart and compassion towards others- first just look at how much her buddies loved her and vice versa, and what we have seen of her when she’s interacted with strangers. I think Jana performs out of duty and obligation, Jill out of love and compassion (not that they both don’t have a little og each and neither are bad). 
 

I think Jill wants approval and validation for something other than caregiving (and I don’t blame her), you’re right she has taken a lot of steps forward. I never expected her to leave the show.

Not to get too off topic, but "mema" prounced me-ma is common among German speaking folks.  The internet offically says Oma for grandma, but Germans we've known have found Oma and Opa(grandfather) too close in sound and use Mema and Opa.

I know Cathy probably missed her grandsons, but they should be social distancing. 

As a German living in Germany I have never heard that before. At least in Southern Germany I only know of Oma and Opa (or Omi and Opi) and have only heard Meema on TBBT. 

Are the social distancing rules in the US still not allowing contact between different households? 

I think it's sweet to see how much the boys love their grandparents.

This is true, but we know Derick is out delivering Grub Hub with Jill and the kids riding along; so we know they haven't truly quarantined.

I have been watching my neighbor get grubhub deliveries daily for the past few months.  It's not unusual to see 2 people in the car, one driver and the other who gets out and makes the delivery to the door.  I have no idea if this is allowed by the company or not, but it happens.
