We're Still Here, Dangit
When the vaccines became available early in the year, I'd hoped we were seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. But... Yeah. Too many people are getting rich/powerful off the gullible, so it's December and here we are.
I'm supposed to be going to a family gathering next week. It would be nice to go — I haven't seen my middle sister or her family in a couple of years, and nobody is getting any younger. Everyone who is old enough to be vaccinated will be vaccinated, but that's no guarantee.
Anyhow, I can't control anything other than my own risk tolerance, but I know I'd feel better if everyone planning to spend six hours indoors together had a negative test that day — even if someone is sick, they likely won't be actively shedding much if the test doesn't pick it up.
So I started trying to order rapid test kits for everyone. But they aren't easy to find. I've ordered some, but I'm not sure they will arrive in time.
It's my own fault for not thinking of it earlier, but ugh.
