Pandemic Week 66

This week on Monday they opened up 2nd doses for hot spot areas for those who received their first dose before May 9th – so this is our household because we got ours April 28th. The vaccine booking site is super backed up and really hard to find available appointments that are local. We need local because none of us drive and we’d rather not take public transit yet. As I was trying to navigate the site, Monday evening I got another email from the local politician that let me know there will be pop up clinics for 2nd doses and a few of them are in my area. 2 of them are about a 15 minute walk away and were advertising Pfizer, so we’re going to go early again and see if we can’t make it in that way instead of trying to make an appointment. They each say they’ve got around 2000 doses, so hopefully we’ll luck out.

We ended up skipping the Friday one. 80-90% chance of rain the whole day. I also did some searching for booking an appointment and got myself on some email wait lists for pharmacies that will email a booking link when they have doses available, just in case we don’t get through a pop up clinic.  Sunday we got up early to go to the other pop up clinic and got a pretty good spot in line. If I had to guess, I’d say we were in the first 500 people easily. We got there before 6am and it was to start at 8. Just before 8, someone came around and said they were given Moderna for todays clinic instead of Pfizer.  This wasn’t a situation we were prepared for, so we decided to go home and do more reading and look for other options for appointments. I knew getting either Pfizer or Moderna has been talked about a lot being okay for having as 2nd dose after AstraZenica, but I have not heard anywhere about the mixing of the 2 mRNA ones yet. So today I’m feeling grateful for my privilege in having the choice to have both access and choice and also in a position to be able to wait as I’m home still and not an essential worker.  

After failing my produce goals last week, I’m back on track. Back to having my fruit and yogurt breakfast, incorporating veggies into lunch and having veggies with dinner. Much better than last week where I think I only had the dinner ones most days. Definitely feeling better on my body. 

I’m not so patiently awaiting the world opening again. I’m very much missing friends and feeling lonely. So many Facebook reminders of big Heroclix tournaments that happened around now from years past and wishing we could be doing that again already. 

It FINALLY happened! The Canada launch for juvenaé has officially arrived and we’re live as of Wednesday. I’ve already had a lovely friend join my team and I can’t wait to see where this business goes. If you want to check out my site, you can find it here. They’re getting things like bundles and all the nail options coming, but right now, the join kits are the best deal.  Not only can you choose a bundle but you also get your website for a full year, which means wholesale pricing for your personal purchases and a link you can share with friends and make some cash if anyone wants something you’ve got. 

I haven’t been moving my body as much as I’d like to be. I hate that I’ve fallen back on that and the soreness in my knee is evident of my lack of movement after the walk too and from that pop up clinic today. It’s very tight feeling. I’ve been doing some stretches and such, but nothing more vigorous that my body needs.  That’s why my self care post this week was focusing on movement and putting that back in the forefront of my mind again. 

Sleeps been crappy again with being unable to fall asleep until around 9-10am and only sleeping 4-5 hours. Friday night into Saturday I didn’t sleep at all. I was up close to 36 hours straight.  That thankfully made me tired enough that I passed out early Saturday evening and slept a solid 10 hours before getting up at 4am to go to the pop up clinic.  Fingers crossed that puts me back on track for falling asleep at a reasonable time tonight! 

That’s it for me this week!

Until next time, xoxo
