Welp, Got Covid. Again.

Today is day 9 since I tested positive for Covid-19. I’m exhausted and getting rather annoyed. I love New Year’s and the month of January! I love the symbolic fresh start and everything that comes with it: cleaning my house, refocusing my goals, and setting intentions. I was so excited to launch Bookishbelle, LLC but then Covid hit my household like a bus and I haven’t been able to get much work done.

Besides the monstrous sore throat and lingering headache, the brain fog and fatigue are getting in the way of my daily life. I’m struggling to write this because I can’t seem to stay focused on anything. Guys. I haven’t even been able to read. Listening to an audiobook isn’t possible because I zone out of the plot almost instantly. Forget trying to watch a show with a plot – I’m lost.

So what am I left with?

Last week, while up at 3:30am unable to sleep I discovered the unfair videos on A&E’s YouTube channel – 4 hour videos of Hoarders episodes. Several of them! I’ve never watched the show but oh boy in the last week I have watched hours of it. The satisfaction of seeing a clean house at the end is just enough serotonin to keep me going.

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve seen my latest DYI home project, which I will feature on here once it is done. It’s a small project where I don’t have to think and can just do.

I’m thankful that we have tests, both in clinic and at home, because the first time we had Covid nobody had any idea what we had. Steve came back from a work trip in Miami the first week of January 2020 horribly sick. I remember picking him up from the airport and when he got in the car, he didn’t even say hi. He looked grey and asked if I had any water. I caught the same bug within a day and took a week off work, which is unheard of for me. Back then I worked for two ER doctors and neither could tell me what kind of virus I had that was lingering for weeks. Few months later, the whole world knew.

Well, 2022, you started off shitty, but I’m determined to accomplish many things this year. Let’s go.
