  • Booster Got!

    So a friend got his booster shot around lunch time and said there weren't a lot of people and it only took 20 mins. So I checked and saw I could still book a slot for 3PM at SM North and I was like why not, if it's only 20 minutes? FAM I WAS THERE FOR 3.5 HOURS THERE WERE SO MANY PEOPLE. I forgot that today was the last day of the National Vaccination drive or whatever it's called. Rewarded myself afterwards with some Pepper Lunch, first time back at a mall since March 2020!

  • The Covid Experience

    I struggled for a bit with how to write this post. Privacy of family and medical histories are considerations, so I will not get into too much detail with that regard and limit it to Covid-related concerns. Other than that, writing about the experience might be useful to other people (and besides, if I didn't write this post, future me would find it weird!). The post ended up quite long! TLDR: We got Covid19 and had to stay in the hospital. Covid19 is serious business, be careful and avoid it at all costs. The Covid19 Run Around the last weekend

  • As of tonight, all of the household's Covid patients have been cleared and sent home from the hospital. I wish I could say that was the end of the ordeal, but not everyone came back at full strength and there may still be a significant recovery period to go. What this means for me personally is that my caretaking days are not yet done. I thought I would have the energy for a full-blown weeknotes today, but with everything I've had to handle, it might take me a few more days to get back into my familiar old routines and

  • I have a bit more time and energy this week, though I am still unfortunately stuck at the hospital, taking care of loved ones. The good news is that I myself am no longer a patient, I recovered and was "discharged" a while back. Both of the loved ones still here in the hospital are past the worst of it apparently, but we still need to wait for them to recover before we can go home. The doctors are unable to give us a timeline. As you can imagine, the hospital stay has wreaked havoc on my routines, though now

    The covid situation is still unfolding, but it's no longer at home. I am relatively fine and doing well, aside from some minor things. But there are others to take care of as well. I wish more words could be spared, but that will have to wait until this is all over. Until then, the blog gets little more than a placeholder. The world can wait.:

    There is an evolving COVID situation at home, so things are a bit busy today, this entry may be shorter than usual. The world: 2022 presidential race is heating up; Manila Mayor Isko Moreno announced his candidacy this past week (with failed senatorial candidate Dr. Willie Ong as his running mate), though some people suspect he is a spoiler candidate meant to split opposition votes. He's never really been opposition though? KBL has expectedly endorsed BongBong Marcos as their presidential candidate.
