It’s been a long slog through Germany on this one. There are plenty of postcards, thank heavens, but no street view of the trek.Continue reading “Virtual Germany: Nearly there”
I’m so itchy to travel again. I am not ready to go do it, even if some of the places I’d like to go would let me.Continue reading “Oh The Places I’d Go”
For my Canadian readers and that one guy who is repatriated from there. You know who you are.Continue reading “Happy Canada Day”
I’d like to think so anyway.Continue reading “Have vaccine (and mask)…”
As I type this, I got my 2nd shot about 5 minutes ago.
The process: smooth. Less unfamiliar, so that helps. It’s hotter this 3 weeks later and it’s raining so to fight the heat and humidity, fans are running. It makes it more pleasant temperature-wise but it’s so loud.
Otherwise it would be less so. Less crowded today. I wonder if it’s a timing thing: I’m 30 minutes earlier than the first shot. It’s busy but it seems less so.
Maybe it also seems that way because of where I’m sitting, in the front to wait my 15 minutes, instead of in the back. The crowd is behind me.
5 more minutes to wait.
I don’t even have the jangly my-arm-was-recently-poked sensation so far. I know that it was poked, but so far no reaction that I can feel.
You never know, until you know, you know? Your mileage may vary. But so far, so good. So far, completely fine.
It’s pouring outside. I’m going to get quite wet getting back to the car. And there’s a refueling chore I need to fit in. If not today – ugh rain – then relatively soon.
Times up. Off I go!
Next morning update: Wow, I slept fine and I feel fine. (Pauses to self-assess in detail.)
My arm feels kind of like I have a bruise where the shot was. Not the jangled nerves sensation from the last shot. Not pain, even. More like, I’m slightly aware that I have an upper arm, if that makes sense.
Evening update: No after effects to report. I mean, work was a hassle and I’m tired, but like long day tired, not like post-vaccine fatigue tired.
So there’s that then, gang. Your mileage may vary, depending if you have other health issues or have been exposed to COVID before. But based on my experience: no reason for worries.
If you haven’t scheduled your shot: 10/10: highly recommend! So go get the next available appointment, okay?
… is a fine day to finish getting vaccinated against COVID-19.
Yeah I know that didn’t seem like that was where I was headed with that thought! 🤣Continue reading “May the fourth…”
My arm is a little sore. It’s not terrible, mind you. My inclination is to try to rub it, move it more, flex that muscle to work it out.Continue reading “Update: After the first shot”
I’d joked that since I don’t have a doctor – and therefore I don’t know if I have any get-it-faster health issues – I’d probably end up last in line for the vaccine.Continue reading “The appointment”
The last day that I was in one of the offices in person was about a year ago now.Continue reading “A year at home”
