Covid Blues Pt. 2

I will tell you a Covid joke now, but you got to wait 3-5 days to see if you got it.


Well so much for this being such a nice week re: my discussion in yesterday's Buzzyblog post.  Shortly after I wrote that little ditty yesterday morning describing why this can be such a good week, I took a home Covid test and learned that I am positive for the virus.  Talk about life keeping you humble, I sure as hell didn't see that coming.  

For the record, I am triple vaccinated, and had not had any Covid-related symptoms (click here) until Sunday night when a coughing jag kept me up half the night.  (I am up half the night anyway, but usually that's because I want to be and not because I have to be due to coughing my ass off.) 

Monday morning I went onto the County's Covid test sites first thing and found that the earliest appointment I could get was not until Tuesday morning.  However, I did not want to wait that long.

Pam had previously picked up some home test kits recently so we busted one open and followed the instructioins for administering it.  While I waited the mandatory 15 minutes after my swab,  I could see the positive line starting to form.  Up until that time I was fairly sure that I was not going to test positive.  Well that sureness was short lived as the "Test Proctor" came back on line to inform me that I had indeed tested positive.  

So now I'm on the beach for the next 10 days and doing very little.  This week will be a quiet one for me even if it wasn't the one I was envisioning.   Buzzy's too will be quiet for awhile.  I'll keep you posted on when we will re-open.
