A week full of sickies.... New weekly edition!

 I read on my bloggy friend Steph's blog where she's going to blog like a weekly update - I love this idea. I feel like its doable. I've just not wanted to invest a lot of time in front of the computer when I feel like I'm in front of it constantly & my free time, I just want to relax & read & spend time outdoors with my dogs.... but I'm going to strive for that - a weekly update. Because I do still enjoy connecting with the bloggers of the world... & I want to keep my memories in one place... so let's see how this works.

So here we go - the update for last week 02/05-02/11/25

* Yep, Covid got us.  Well, it got me first.  I woke up last Friday in the middle of the night with the worst sore throat & earache. Like, I was thinking I need an ER visit for my ears because I thought they were going to rupture.  I took at COVID test in the middle of the night at 2am & it was negative. OK - maybe just a sinus infection.  I woke up feeling worse & was so glad it was my work from home day.  The morning, I felt worse by the hour. Getting weird body cramps, in the back of my thighs, in my forearms ??? in my ankles ??? - so weird. I took another COVID test at lunch time & it was an INSTANT positive line.  ...& by the end of the night, I was feeling like death.  I had over a 102 fever & I was shivering & miserable - still couldnt swallow anything. It was awful.  It hit me hard & fast.

We tried to keep Ricky safe.  We stayed in opposite sides of the house - we wore masks if we came out of our designated spaces.... but by Tuesday, he felt bad & had to come home from work. He did the same thing though.  He tested before he went to work  Monday evening & then when he got home on Tuesday, he had that same instant positive test.  & he had the same symptoms as me - the sore throat & earache & high fever.  It was exhausting.

ahhhh - this is love - sharing in all things

We both still sound froggy & both still feel a little drained... but I'm so thankful this was nothing like my first go around with COVID. That still haunts me with the breathing issues.  I tested negative 9 days later & back at work.

* Love grocery delivery.  With us both sick, we had offers from my brother, Ricky's sister & a neighbor to go get us food (thank you to all of them!!!) but I pay the yearly fee to get my groceries delivered & its the best thing ever.  I hate going in the grocery store & fighting the crowds & there's never a line open that isn't 5 deep.  I used to do the Click List to pick up but that even got old to me.  Drop on my front porch - especially when we're sick.  This is the best thing if you have it offered to you & you dont enjoy grocery shopping either.

* Glad we got a taste of spring. To be sick & not go around anyone, I'm glad we had some temps in the 60's where I could get some sun on my face & get to throw the ball for the dogs.  Of course, we've been back in freezing temps at night again - but just the glimpse of Spring gives me hope - its around the corner!

* I finished a book - Daughter of Mine. I love that I got a preview of this book from NetGalley - it comes out in April 2024.  If you love mysteries & thrillers, you'll enjoy this. It took a few days for my brain to function enough to read with COVID Fog - but once I got started in this, I couldnt put it down.

* I had to get 4 new tires for my car.  Bye money! Ouch!... my car right before I got sick was starting to do weird things with the steering wheel. It would just shake back & forth.  It started small but every day driving, it was getting worse & then my whole car was shaking, My phone in its holder was rattling so hard, I thought it would jolt off.  Ends up, there was a "bubble" in my tire & the tread was getting ready to come off another tire.  I've had my car going on 5 years & its the original tires so time to get some new ones.  Ricky told me I needed the more expensive ones because he knows I dont like tire noise - this is true... so I paid for the best & while they're still feeling bumpy to me wearing in a little - I'm glad to know I have some good safe tires on my vehicle now.

* Speaking of groceries earlier - we've been trying a new food delivery the past few weeks. So far, so good! Hungryroot is what I've been going with.  What I love most about it- the dinners are SUPER FAST. Like most things take 15 minutes or less. & they have great healthy options & a LOT of vegan, vegetarian things. What's different about this is it has like "grocery items" - you can use your alloted credits for meals or grocery items - or pay more if you use all your credits. I'm in love with their Cucumber Tahizi dip so I'm always adding that to my order.  But here's a perfect example of a meal - Butternut Squash Ravioli with steamed broccoli - it was fantastic!

If you have any questions or want to give a try, let me know - I can send you a link

* & to end the week - SUPER BOWL SUNDAY! I dont really care about any sports besides Tennis - as we all know - so I didnt really care about the game - but am always here for the commercials & the half time show.  Of course, we were super stoked to see roller skates involved.   & as much as I know about football, I loved Taylor Swift & Travis Kelce got their happy ending for this.  I love love.

How was your week last week?

Did you watch the Superbowl? Did your team win?

Have you avoided Covid or sickies lately?
