What a day, what a day.
Woke up feeling about the same as I had two days ago as if my lovely day yesterday had never happened.
What the hell? What the fucking hell?
And y'all- none of this is very bad. None of my symptoms are debilitating or incredibly painful. Just...bothersome. And it's also bothersome that I have the same symptoms as Jessie and the boys and I was definitely exposed and they have covid and yet, I seem not to.
I took another Binax test and again- negative. So I decided to drive to Tallahassee and go to a testing center and get my nasal passages swabbed professionally for a PCR test. And I did.
The whole situation reminded me a little of a cross between some dystopian movie set and the Wizard of Oz. It's all outside in a parking lot except that the nurse (and she was a nurse because she had a name badge on with that honorific) wearing a mask and a protective face shield and gloves was behind a window in a small portable building. I was instructed by signs to have my ID and insurance in my hand, a mask on, and to not take photos or video.
The nurse asked me some questions and put me in the system although I should have already been in the system having had tests in Monticello but whatever. After all of that was completed, she directed me to the other window where she met me again, this time more fully protected in a disposable gown and fresh (I assume) gloves. Then she swabbed my nasal passages quite aggressively to the point where I have to say that it passed the point of discomfort and went into the pain zone at which time I said, "Ow!"
I felt like such a wussy.
But that was that. I will get results in 24-72 hours.
Now. If I do NOT have covid, then I have something that the boys had before they GOT covid and who knows what that was?
And if I don't have covid I can go to Publix. But if I do have covid, I can hang out with Jessie and the boys. After my test I did go over there to drop off a few things but we visited outside and wore masks. Levon was still home but August had returned to school. Levon had a headache last night but he was fine today. They were about to go take a little walk around a pond in a park.
And I came home.
Look at Magnolia!
Anyway, they figured out that she could be Fancy Nancy and she had the right clothes but Lily stayed up late glittering the glasses and tiara. Isn't Maggie adorable? I know nothing about Fancy Nancy but she can't possibly be as Fancy as our Magnolia June.
(That's a medical term- "re-sick".)
Mr. Moon and I watched the first episode of a new series on Peacock last night called "Poker Face." I think we're going to like it. It has Natasha Lyonne as the main protagonist and I like her work although I could not finish her last series, "Russian Doll." It made me so anxious I had to stop watching it. Adrien Brody was in this episode of the new series and my god, I love that man's face. He has the best nose in Hollywood. I do love a good nose.
This blows my mind. But hey- she did hang out with royalty from childhood.
Just ask Prince Andrew.
Here's the newest patch I'm working on. It's on the strap of the linen dress I love so much.
