Back Home

So, I have returned home to happy cats after a two week vacation. Sadly, I also brought Covid home with me. Although I am vaccinated and boosted, I still managed to pick up a case on our cruise. Everyone tested prior to boarding and had to have a negative test. Everyone also had to be vaccinated. Sadly, that wasn’t enough.

I should have masked more often walking around indoors. I did read that a woman on one of our tours in Aruba wasn’t feeling well when she went on the tour and subsequently got Covid, which means that on the hottest day of the trip, when I was least likely to mask, was probably the time I was most exposed. Sigh. She went because she though it was her “usual cruise crud.” And I have to wonder how often she’d been passing around viruses and such when it really was her “usual cruise crud” to people who potentially had less immunity.

But I can write and I am lucky that my illness appears to be quite mild.
