Oops, I did it again
I played with my odds, got lost in the social distancing game
Oh baby, baby
Oops, I thought I was still immune
That means self-isolating from the attic above
I'm not feeling that magnificent
Oh how I have waited for the day to write a parody of "Oops... I Did It Again" to let my wonderful and ridiculously good-looking blogging audience know that some of the Shifleys tested positive for COVID. Again.
It is pretty interesting the thoughts that enter my head when I'm lying still for my acupuncture treatments and left with only my imagination to keep me entertained.
Anyway, I guess I jinxed myself last week with all of the COVID recovery talk.
A few days after our sledding and hot springs trip, we tested positive and had to quarantine for 5 days.
Everyone had mild symptoms.
I think the worst part of it was Kyle and Hayden dealing with the boredom of being inside that long.
It was cold and gray outside so getting outdoors wasn't much of an option.
After getting tired of reading books, playing board games, cooking, gaming and watching shows/movies, they came up with a new game to help pass the time.
They called it "venting."
I don't know what you call them in your part of the world - floor vents or registers or grills - but the kids would talk to each other through the floor vents and it made them happy for a really long time.
The photo below is of Hayden listening to Kyle tell her why I smell like taco meat and aftershave or more likely talking about how they are going to slyly manipulate their parents to letting them stay up late to watch their favorite shows.
The kids went back to school a few days ago and I took a sick day because I was so stinking' tired again but other than that, we are doing good and hanging in there.
So that was our week.
How are things going for you?
I hope all is well and you don't run into any mean ducks.
I am better than I was. I will be better than I am.
I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.
