Post covid…

We’re officially post covid in this house! I definitely attribute the “easy” time I had to being vaccinated. Evelyn I’ll just attribute to her youth and luck. She had a sniffly nose and was very cranky. The only other way you could tell she was sick was simply that she was sleeping until almost 7am every day. Dill never caught it, despite both of us sneezing and coughing in his face.

It’s very odd what one short week of covid did to my body. I had just posted about being in the best shape of my life, and Monday I tried to do my first full Peloton stack and oooofffff. It was as if I was starting all over. Afterwards I spent about an hour coughing. The fatigue is also pretty wild. But I’m going to keep pushing through, mainly because I have to.

Timing wise it’s been the absolute worst. Between quarantines and covid, Evelyn spent a total of 5 days in school last month. And it’s just impossible to work when she’s home. She’s a wonderful, easy kid. But I can’t say “okay honey, go play! Mama needs 4 hours to work on this pattern completely uninterrupted!” Hell, I can’t even get 30 minutes! And the past few months have been extremely, extremely buy. One of the Strange Brew lawyers needed some paperwork from 2004 and 2005. Not something I just had sitting around in my desk filing cabinet. We’re also looking for a second property for the business, and a new house. Considering the market right now, it’s more stress than fun! (also, if you have a realtor that takes the FIRST OFFER instead of stating “we’re accepting all offers no later than X” you don’t have the best realtor. A house selling in 24 hours isn’t necessarily something to celebrate)

Side note, yesterday we looked at a house owned by taxidermy company. The slanted floor in the outbuilding, the random meat cleaver we found in the woods… I may have nightmares for years!

Anyway, all this rambling in the ether just to say I’m stressed, I hope things get better soon, and try to avoid getting covid. Even a mild case of covid really sucks.
