I laughed when I saw this... as this is how I feel when shopping in person at the grocery store. Mostly we do curb-side pickup, but occasionally DH has to pick up a Rx... so I go with him. Passing unmasked people always makes me move a little faster.
He has passed his quarantine time... and is doing fine. Doctor didn't recommend getting retested since we're home and retired. And I've not been tested since I've had no symptoms. So I 'guess' we're fine.(We did sign up for those free home tests kits, but who knows when those will arrive.)
Supposed to pick up granddaughter from school today. Told son that we will stay masked - just as a precaution.
Life goes on... It's now Friday and I have to say that I have been feeling a bit off. Hard to explain... getting waves of extreme tiredness which last for a while, then gone, then it comes again. You know the feeling when you're coming down with something... really weird. Started yesterday and continued through the night. Took a Tylenol before going to bed.
Feeling a little better this morning, but still not right. When you're my age, it's hard to tell if this is just something that happens (How does one know when we've never been old before?) or if this is the dreaded Covid trying to infiltrate my system. I have been triple vaccinated and hardly go anywhere (and wear a mask when I do).... but then I can say the same for DH and yet he tested positive.
We both had Dematologist Appointments next week. They just called to remind us. Told them about the dreaded Covid in the house - so we will have to reschedule.
The outside feral cats are gathering forces... or so it seems. Now instead of the usual 3-4, we're having 6 or 7. Poor One-Eye has competition when he comes to the door. I try to save him something (like a little salmon left over from my dinner recently), but unless we're really quiet... the others run up and he runs off. He's old and has survived being beat up, but he's not a fighter anymore.
And our little white faced feral kitten is a sassy little thing. She is like her mama and not afraid of the others, runs right among them and goes for her food. She had taken to using the cat tree a lot lately... getting playful with Squeaky and BK, who are a little older, but still playful. Sometimes we think Squeaky might like to come inside. The others run away from the door, but Squeaky will stick his head inside and look around. If you remember, we call him Squeaky because he has a very squeaky little voice and likes to talk A LOT!
Also, our AGA is off again... (my kitchen isn't warm and cozy as it is when the AGA is on). But when the gas people checked the lines when changing out the meter (for the home generator), they said we had a leak in the AGA valve and that needed to be replaced... so they turned off the gas going to it. We miss it so much! But thank goodness we now have the Breville toaster oven air fryer. It is very useful (but it still has to be pre-heated and we've gotten spoiled with the AGA - no preheating necessary since it's on all the time.)
That's about my news for today (and yesterday). DH and I are having coffee and rum cake at the moment (from Christmas - had a few small ones put away in the freezer).
I recently read this... and thought that I've always believed this...
and I'll be honest here (although I know everyone would not agree with me) but when I read this, I think of Barack Obama...
