Ew...sorry! This is such a weird disease.

Yeah - kinda sucks. Pretty sure my travel had something to do with getting it. I don't feel all that bad right now. Hoping it doesn't get any worse.

I have been waiting to get my second booster until the end of summer before I'm confided in a classroom with 30 snot nosed teenagers again but I may do it now.

I got my second booster in April. A lot of good it did me.....

Everyone I know that is getting covid right now is at least 3 shots in...

Hard to know how to balance keeping running streaks going when sick.
