I'm here, checking in every day for as long as I can remember, but I don't often reply. Chat is nice and low-key. I feel like I've found maybe one twentieth the number of good articles the past year, so I don't have as much to share or read or say, which is a bummer.

Things are bland. Or heart-breaking. Or both. We still have a long way to go until normal people can get a shot, and the next months are not going to be nice so I'm dreading that. I got myself undeep nasal antigen tests and have rarely felt more conflicted about spending money on my personal health.

    My wife and I did end up contracting COVID, and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. It wasn't a fun experience, and parts of my body hurt that I didn't know were capable of hurting.

I’m so sorry to hear that. We’ve been lucky so far. One of my kids tested positive after two of the others had mild colds, so we just assume three of them had it. We did a lot of weird in-house isolation stuff and managed to keep the rest of us Covid free... which is miraculous. I hope you don’t have any lingering symptoms.

Glad to hear that you and your family have made it through largely unscathed. We are finally all vaxed up in our home. My wife as a physician, myself as a volunteer and our au pair as a childcare provider all managed to get the shot. It feels nice to know that our household is safer now. We will still continue to mask up, used hand sanitizer and socially distance. But, it's a good feeling.

I hope you and the kiddos are doing well, Steve-o. Any new songs from your daughter? That last one still blows my mind. So talented!
