I've been feeling under the weather since Thursday, and since the kids are still participating in socially distanced activities, I wanted to make sure I wasn't putting anyone else at risk. Yesterday evening I had a video doctor call, & he recommended a test today. I went through a drive through (you don't get out of your car) at an urgent clinic, & was in & out in ~20 minutes. It was extremely efficient. The nasal swab was really no fun (particularly as I'm congested & having some sinus pressure), but nothing too bad. I received the results this afternoon, & am negative for COVID! I was reasonably convinced I didn't have it, but wanted to feel really confident, particularly heading into the holidays, where we will see my parents.
What else has happened today? Not much, really. I've puttered around the house, done the laundry, the dishes, picked some green tomatoes, & helped Sam with an art project (high school art for a kid, done at home, when you're not very crafty, is the opposite of a good time.)
Nick is making dinner tonight (a chicken parmesan dish, I believe), I made salad for the first time in a few days, with my slight uptick in energy.
I'm also working on finalizing our 2020 budget numbers (preview - we spent a lot more on groceries & utilities, but A LOT less on travel). ;-)
I'm also thinking of our goals for 2021 & thinking of a fresh new year! Always one of my favorite times, despite this year looking different than normal.
What about you? What are you up to today?
