One and done

So far I am feeling FINE if psychologically a little muddled due to the surrounding background emotional and non-specific anxiety issues. I mean, it’s been a looooong year. But it’s okay, I know how to deal with that kind of crapola.

It was harder than heck to find a vax here in the southeast Great Lake State, even for us old baggies. In the end, it was my mouse who found it. She doesn’t qualify via age (yet) but she is a grocery worker. Even so, grocery workers didn’t seem to be prioritized anywhere. Why, I cannot fathom. They are front-line essential workers! Nevertheless, she persisted and found a church in Ypsilanti that was partnering with Rite Aid for a popup clinic. Grocery workers were on their list. We registered and got in. It was very well organized and the staff was lovely.

Oddly enough, the day after I told my boss I would be MIA for a while today, she and a whole bunch of co-workers had also snagged appointments. Most of them are going to Ohio. That state apparently has more vaccine than it has demand for and some stores are taking walk-ins. One theory put forth by the “experts” on nextdoor neighbor is that more people in Ohio are resisting the vaccine, the implication being that political reasons are in play.

Thanks to my mouse who drove me over there and my lizard who ordered us a pizza for tonight. I am in fine shape for cooking (knock on wood) but it’s a place I’ve been wanting to try and I think she wanted to do something for us. Best daughters!

What’s disheartening is that our state’s case numbers are skyrocketing again. There were a couple days of 500 in February. Today we had over 4000. And we won’t even talk about Fla, where everyone seems to have given up. People, keep those masks on and get those shots into your arms. We are not done with this yet.

    I want most people who can to get the vaccine and then for it to go away. But too many people are stupid, as are the politicians who politicized this virus and mask wearing.

    Glad you were able to get your vaccine. I sure don’t understand why grocery workers weren’t one of the first to get it either. They are risking their lives for pennies and are left forgotten. It’s horrible! I’m in Florida and it seems all but impossible to get an appointment. I’m staying home and far away from all the insane people here until I can get one and then probably after that too!
