So my bout with COVID is over, and Missus is mostly over hers. Some lingering tiredness remains, in her case. I’m well enough, well enough to stay up till 2AM playing video games and watching TV, at least, although my Whoop is showing very low levels of recovery due to my shitty sleep schedule. The girls remain unaffected.
I also seem to be over the blues I’ve been feeling over the loss of our Hawaii trip which was probably even worse than the sickness itself. I’ve been out of sorts, even before I got sick. I’d stopped meditating in the mornings, and most of my other good habits seem to have fallen by the wayside as well. I don’t really think that it was related to the bear markets and financial ruin that has been going on, but maybe I’m in denial.
I’ve got another week to recharge. Due to a quirk in the fact that the girls go to different elementary schools and have different school nurses who are interpreting the city’s COVID policies differently, Elder is going back to school tomorrow, while Younger is out next week. So I plan on loading up our bikes and going on an adventure tomorrow with her, to the same bike trail where I took her sister a few weeks ago. If she does well, then we’ll be able to go on a family trip with the four of us. Missus is ready to pick out a bike as well.
I don’t think that we’ll be able to make up for the Hawaii trip here at home, obviously, but we’re going to try our best to fill the week out with activities. I’ve been researching trails online and have found that we live a few hours from what is considered a world-class biking area.
Tonight, I’m going to finish reading the last book of Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn trilogy. I’m about a hundred pages from the end. It’s a good series, and it frustrates me that Missus has refused to pick up the first book in the series. We watched S3 of Love, Death, and Robots earlier today, together, and I’ve been binging Nightflyers for the last couple days. It’s decent show, but not great. I also grabbed Prey from the Epic Games freebies on Friday and played that a bit yesterday. It’s a Bethesda game, and has Bioshock written all over it. I’m not sure how much time I’ll put into it, I just needed a break from Tarkov.
