Today is my wedding anniversary. Thankfully, Brian and I went out for a fancy dinner last Saturday, but we had planned to take off today to have a little day date together. We were planning to do some shopping and having lunch in our little town. Instead the morning began with me isolated in our bedroom, reading a card from Bri as my crew went to have their COVID rapid tests.
Physically today I still feel fine. No symptoms at all.
Emotionally, I’m dreading the next two weeks.
My family all tested negative. I’m so grateful for this, but if I’m honest, I’m also a little bit sad. It means I have to stay isolated from them. It means I have to use the upstairs bathroom so we don’t have to share (which would make their quarantine extended I’ve learned from friends who made that mistake). No, I don’t want any of them to be sick. But I also don’t want us to have to go through this again weeks or months down the road.
But, when I get sad, I think it’s important to list off things I’m thankful for:
- Early Voting!!! Knocked that out weeks ago.
- Ability to work from home. Work was a much needed distraction today.
- Grocery delivery… I used Instacart for our Aldi order and our friends are picking up our Kroger order tonight and dropping on our porch.
- Technology and ability to connect to family and friends!
- That we are healthy. Health is something none of us should take for granted. I’m so thankful to be symptom free and that my kids and husband are healthy.
- Blankets and cozy socks and fall candles (that I can smell!) and candy corn and all things Halloween.
I think it will be fitting to close these posts out with some vitals:
Vitals all good as of 5:45 pm on 10.30.20. No symptoms.
Stay safe and well! And give your husband or wife an extra big hug and smooch. This will be the first (and hopefully ONLY) anniversary where I haven’t hugged or kissed my husband!
