Facing Round Two

Intellectually, I knew that this second lockdown was coming, just in time for the holidays. The news of it still hit me hard.

NOTE: I am well aware that I am playing “Apocalypse 2020” on one of the easiest settings possible.

Cycling Through

Though I’ve been trying to get to the fiction for a week or so, yesterday was the first day that I actually managed it. The first chapter I wrote was so easy. I had a lot of fun. Then I found myself distracted, unable to really get much more down on the page.

Recap of COVID

Despite a second night of not great sleep, I’m still feeling better. Enough so, that I’m declaring that I’m finally well again.

I need to rebuild my strength. I’m going to start walking again today. Just a bit, not as much as usual.

Day Six of COVID

Despite not sleeping well last night, I’m still feeling better. I don’t think I’m 100% over being sick. Almost there. I figure tomorrow I might not feel sick anymore and just be recovering.

So what am I going to do today?

Day Four of COVID

Though technically, this could be day five, given that it was five days ago when I got hit by that really bad headache.

Some people who have had mild cases like this have said that today and tomorrow are possibly going to be the worst of the days.

Day Three of COVID

At this point, I’m 99% certain I have COVID-19, and not anything else. It remains mild.

After a nap yesterday morning, I woke up feeling a lot better. Went outside for a short walk. Instead of just walking around the house (all flat) I decided to walk up to the upper meadow to look at how the transplanted roses were doing.

Day Two of Whatever

Chances are, I have COVID. However, it is an extremely mild case, if that’s what it is.

Yesterday, when we checked, I was running a very mild fever. In addition, about 24 hours after that initial headache started, my chest grew constricted.

Paranoia? Or COVID?

Friday, later in the afternoon, I got hit with a really bad headache that seemed to come out of nowhere.


Do I have IT? Am I sick? Can I still breathe?

My husband says that I’m one of the most stubborn people he knows.


I know it’s been a couple of weeks, but yesterday, I finally felt as though I was adjusting to the new normal.

For me, that involves staying on the property a lot of the time, not going anywhere. It’s kind of weird.
