Here's what vaccination means to me. I'm camping at the lake with my daughter,

one of my sons and his family. All adults are fully vaccinated, the boys, 12 & 14, have had their first dose. Granddaughter, 11, is waiting for her age group to be eligible.

We live an hour apart, but haven't been together in over a year. Now we can do so safely.

There will be much cooking, playing of games and a lot of catching up to do over the next 3 days. We're already planning the next trip.

1. My son is coming to visit me in 10 days!!

We live half a continent apart. I wasn't able to make my annual trip to visit last year, due to Covid.
Can't wait to see my two cutie-putie gand daighters again!!
We've all been vaccinated and no need to wear masks!!

3. My sister is coming for a visit

From NYC to Brevard County, Florida. Everyone got vaccinated as soon as possible. We'll have a ball together, hopping (masked) and cooking and watching some great video.

7. im at home tethered to a dog for 8 weeks for post surgery supervision 24/7 so..

..i told hubby he should make the 3 hr drive to visit dtr and family and the two grand dtrs. He even took the G-kids (18 and 16) to get their first shots. He filmed it for me. Now they have all had their first shots and we feel pretty comfortable visiting them. The girls have been cave dwellers and spent all grad/birthday $$ ordering food from uber. So no chance of them being exposed to anything.. not even sun light. Dtr works from home and her hubby has 3 co workers so basically a bubble.

I have a weaving class I want to start attending again but i looked in the mirror and Ive been dressing like Steve Bannon. I dyed my hair pink..which is ok.. but its the home hair cut thats a torture. Small talk... whats that?

We need a thread/room..on re-emerging. Kinda like those Circadia!

9. We've all been in semi isolation for the past year. No birthday parties,

Thanksgiving or Christmas together. Stockpiles of masks and hand sanitizer for when you absolutely have to get out.

I got my hair cut a few weeks ago. The ends were absolutely horrible from a grown out perm.

I'm still avoiding crowds. Arkansas has 31% vaccinated and the last time I checked, a 9% positivity rate on testing. Not good.
