Things were going so well just a week ago.

Then Covid decided to give our entire family a scare. The writing was on the wall. Nearly every day I was getting alerts from the school and daycare that another student or teacher had contracted Covid. It only felt like a matter of time. Even with the cases falling with the latest Omnicron surge.

Keeping my fingers crossed that mostly we have to worry about first world problems here – plans we had to cancel, quarantined in the house with the kids for two weeks, blah blah. My wife is still going through a hard stretch right now and I’m feeling a whole lot better than I did just a day or two ago, but I’ve read about what Covid can bring and keeping my fingers crossed that the hardest days are nearly behind us.

For all those that have hit on hard, rough, trying, or stressful times due to Covid, my thoughts are with you.
