Covid Perhaps?


I guess the most important thing, in the overall scale of things, would be Conal.  He got a call from his employer letting him know that someone that he works with had been diagnosed with Covid.  So he is off work and quarantining the next 2 weeks.  Since no one knows just when he would have been exposed, Conal isn't going to get the test until Sunday.  I sure hope that it is negative considering that some of my meds tank my immune system.

The next cool thing that happened in the last week was the fact that I found myself a new kitten.  Deja is going on 15 and I wanted to get a new kitten for him to train before he gets too old.  Caishan is Highlander Cat or, depending on the registry, a Highland Lynx.  He's only 8 weeks old and has to be the most self-possessed kitten that I have ever met.  No crying for his mom at all.  In fact, he let me know the first night that I was his.  I have a funny feeling that he is going to make life interesting especially since he is a polydactyl and has already learned to use his thumbs to unzip things.

Other than those couple things, life has been slow or at least, I have been slow.  If there is one thing I really miss, it is the energy to get things done.  Now I need to weigh everything and decide what is the most important as the rest might just get pushed aside while I am flat on my back trying to recover.  That is the reason that I had to leave a job that I loved.  There is just no way that I can work for 40 hours a week anymore.  I have started doing Shipt because I can schedule and unschedule myself based on how I am feeling.

So how has your past week gone?  Hopefully yours has been less eventful than mine especially when it comes to Covid.


  1. So hoping your husband’s test is negative. Ugh! Your pup and kitten are adorable! I’m relatively new to your blog, so I’m not sure what chronic illness you are dealing with, but I can relate. We are still trying to figure out the basis for mine. Official diagnosis is fibromyalgia, but Lyme disease maybe the underlying culprit.


    1. Oh I have fibro also along with both psoriasic and rheumatoid arthritis. All kinds of fun.
