Second dose update: Tales from the ones who went first

First of all, I am incredibly grateful and lucky to have received the Pfizer vaccine. I’m also incredibly fortunate that the company I work for had the resources, knowledge, and structure to implement a successful vaccination plan for its employees.  For those of us who have received the vaccine, most are in direct contact withContinue reading “Second dose update: Tales from the ones who went first”

The Week After…

It has now been one week since the attempted coup. I had prepared what I thought was a carefully laid out, well researched post about my feelings in response to last week’s events at the Capitol, and I even posted it. It was really more of a temper tantrum when I continued to look atContinue reading “The Week After…”

Round Two is Done!

When You Feel Like a Slug…

Lately, my runs have felt anything other than easy. In fact, since I got sick in August, running has felt slow and laborious. It’s my new normal, so it seems. The first week in August, I developed Covid symptoms. I was sick for 2 weeks. The first few days, I couldn’t tell you which symptomContinue reading “When You Feel Like a Slug…”

Anyone else feeling a bit anxious?

Anxious? Focus on what we CAN control right now. How many of us thought we’d see an outbreak like this in our lifetimes? Honestly, most days I feel like the queen of anxiety. My husband thinks my concern about COVID-19 is unwarranted. And yet here we are… in the midst of a pandemic. I thinkContinue reading “Anyone else feeling a bit anxious?”
