This ain’t over til it’s over


I am doing NaBloPoMo this month. 30 blog posts in 30 days. You can read more about it on San’s blog the in between is mine. #nablopomo2022

I even don’t really know how to write this post. We came home late last night and I brought a little present home. Do you want to take a guess what is coming next? I was kind of waiting for it but when my covid test came back positive it was still a little of a shock. I am in isolation in my son’s room now and everyone else is negative so far. I hope it stays this way. I guess San was right when she said ‘this ain’t over til it’s over‘. True, we did do a couple of things that could have caused an exposure when we were on this vacation but I also did not do anything different than anyone else. If anything I was more careful than some (still wearing masks most of the time e.g.).

I had a close call right before my sister-in-law and her family was here. After I got the updated booster I figured I leave the mask off at work. I was the last one to wear it anyway. That was the day my colleague I spend time in the office with just hours earlier tested positive. Luckily I did not get it then. All in all at least the timing is better now. We got to spend a great week with our friends and made some memories together and made it home safely. With the family visits in Germany and the wedding we went to last summer it’s almost a wonder we made it this far. At least now I can stop wondering when it’s going to happen – if the dinner with friends is ok or if that is too much, if the museum visit is a good idea, the band concerts my kids do, and I could write an reptty much endless list.

I am doing okay so far I would say. Scratchy throat, runny nose and a headache and really tired. But hey, I have room service (at least today) and we will figure out the rest. I still feel a bit defeated. Maybe if I manage to not give it to anyone else I can take home a win? I see a lot of testing going on in our house the next couple of days.

  1. Oh dear, I’m sorry! I haven’t managed to get it yet, though my daughter did earlier this year. My husband feels like he has had it 2 or 3 times, but the first 2 times we didn’t have tests yet, and this time he only tested once and tested negative. Who knows. I hope you feel better SOON.

  2. Ugh, I am so sorry, Meike. I totally get that you feel defeated. It sounds a lot like my case – just bad luck at some point. I do hope you get through this quickly and the symptoms stay mild.

    1. It feels a little better than yesterday and I hope it goes up from here. We did do a couple of things we may not have done during the height of the pandemic but then again, who knows if I did not get it at the grocery store or the gas station? There are so many situations that make me uneasy these days and sometimes I do them anyway because I don’t want my kids to not feel scared for the rest of their lifes. It’s so complicated.


  3. ARG! How annoying. Yes, I hope it doesn’t turn into anything major. If you’ve been vaxxed and boosted, you should be fine. Isn’t it mysterious that you were the only one who got it? Anyway… I hope you’re feeling okay. Get lots of rest!

    1. All vaccinated including boosters and hopefully that helps in the long run. Enjoying room service and I think my son currently gets a crash course in taking care of his things without mom constantly reminding him of everything.
