She was afraid we would get stuck there if Omicron gets worse and she said she would rather do a shorter trip together and then take some trips with all the kids while she's still strong enough so we are planning a few family getaways in the next few weeks.
yeah, that is a concern.
Kind of why I am considering my own health scare a blessing in disguise, keeping me right here at home.

Last June Mrs Xue got Covid, I was sick as well, but it felt like only a bad head cold. However I could not get tested at that time, it was just after knee replacement and I was not allowed to drive. And my other 2 options for travel were not possible, Mrs Xue or my 90 year old mother.

So I got an antibody test a couple weeks ago and it has been confirmed, I had Covid

Hey, in related but different news, every household can order 4 at home tests for free.


You might also have access to additional tests through your state. Washington State was giving some away, but they were all gone within a few hours.

A lot of states are doing this. But, sadly, it seems that as a rule they have badly underestimated interest and are running out pretty much instantly.

Ah wow that's pretty cool! We have a seveeeeeere shortage of them here in Aus... I cannot find em anywhere! Someone even created a handy website that tells you all the local places that have them. Within 20-30 minutes of new ones being put up, they're gone again! Crazy

Well we got more on the way... Boston is at 18 right now..... but divide that by 3 and that is where we are right now..... but tomorrow morning, it is supposed to be -2 again...... I know you're jealous :D
While I don't like the cold in general, there's something to be said for being out in the cold for some hours, then walking into the house when something fragrant is cooking. Especially on a sunny day after a storm.

Pretty much the same around here. Havent looked to see how much they are at this point, but they sell out fast whenever they pop up.

That's crazy. We've been getting our animals' food from Chewy for a while. Seems to work okay. It's probably our fault, though. :D

There is someone here, posting on MT, who I will not name, but he had a very similar thread on another MA site, which got locked. The last video he posted, that was the last before a lock, I hope he posts it here. He is serious in the demo, but its actually hilarious....

Actually, I don't know

But I have discovered he linked the video here too....
LOL, I kinda doubt it, He has been dubbed 'The Maestro' on another forum - different subject.
A caustic individual with great entertainment value....and totally unironically sharing videos of himself being very bad at what he does.
