Kind regards, Ann
Bonnie has had a bath! A very rare event. My OH usually runs a hose over her dirtiest bits, but I had decided that she smelled rather, so she's had a dip in our bathtub, with me rubbing doggy shampoo into her fur. She wasn't very impressed, but now is very white on her white bits!, LOL!!
Diane: That's an efficient website; too bad it doesn't reflect the on-the-ground reality. But it's just awful that you're still feeling so bad and that the symptoms are confusing and you apparently have no way to get to a clinic or doc. Can you call any health services for a telephone consultation? How are you getting food in? Any local church or community groups who could drop off supplies? Can you order food to be delivered to your area? Do you think the same conditions apply in a large city such as Indianapolis, where there'd surely be more options compared to those in your rural area? Like CC in NY, I'm grateful we live in California, where we had a brief local shortage of at-home tests (I think people may have been hoarding) but that's been sorted out and we've always been able to get free PCR tests, with results in less than 24 hours, at least from my experiences. I've also ordered the four free at-home the Feds have just sent out, although I've always heard they aren't entirely reliable and typically show positive only after about the fourth day of infection, too late to prevent people from inadvertently infecting others. NPR also recently reported that some people have been self-testing every day, which is wasteful given the tests' shortcomings. Waaay too many questions from me so feel free to ignore, but I am concerned, as are we all. I hope you can steamroller your way through that project without too much hassle - it sounds like just proofreading and maybe some copyfitting at this point? Hugs from here.
CC: Re voting, looks like I'll be writing lots of letters for Vote Forward again this year. :-( It's all very worrying.
OG: Yes, you did indeed mention J's successful application for teaching assignments; bravo for him. I'm sure that's given him a lift. Lots of changes for the granddaughter's then... :-) Hope EE's knee will be okay in a couple of days...
I owe all kinds of people here and there various responses, so must do all that today before our cable service attempts its - ahem - upgrade tomorrow.
