Chasing a runaway for nearly an hour without a clue where they went. I swear, can't take your eyes off some people for even 10 minutes... But at least it had a good ending.

The weather is terrible out here in Asshole, USA.

I rather stay in bed.

Slightly concerned I might have a horrible reaction and die at the hospital later this week, because the woman who rang me to "ask some questions" was clearly phoning it in....

Her: "Are you on any medication?"
me: "Oh tons, yeah, can you not get it off the computer? I listed it all to the consultant last time, he recorded it all?"
Her: "No, can't do that"
me: "Ok. Sits down with bag of pills, gets comfy, takes big breath..."Pill 1 for this, pill 2 for this, pill 3 for this, pill 4 for this..."
Her: "Great who's your emergency contact?"
me: "? sister... Anyway pill 5 for this, pill 6 for this, pill 7 for this, pill 8 for this..."
Her (not asking for my sister's phone number): "Great have you got any allergies?"
me: "?...yes... But let me finish telling you about my pills first... Pill 9 for this, pill 10 for this, injection for this"
Her: "What cream was that?"
me: "I didn't mention cream, but seeing as you asked, I do have cream 1 on prescription for this....Anyway I'm allergic to medicine 1 and medicine 2"
Her: "What?"
me: "Medicine 2"
Her (not asking what it's for or how to spell it): "Yeah anyway so have you got Covid?"
me: "No"
Her: "Great, So after the procedure someone'll need to pick you up after, bye"
me: "What? Why? Is it not local anaesthetic?"
Her: "I dunno it'll be cold or something, bye"

On the plus side I now feel like the most professional person in the world, compared to her!

Work in general. Too much to do, and too little time.
Got yelled at for no reason, but that situation is unfortunately a thing that has to be dealt with (nothing serious, almost everybody at work gets yelled at in that situation, it's nothing personal).
Missed my bus because the stupid exit door decided to stop working and went into some kind of lock mode it refused to go out of no matter what I did, so I helplessly watched the bus go past. Tried to reach the other exit door and bus stop, but didn't have a chance, and was completely out of breath halfway there (I blame my meds, they take every bit of stamina I have).
If that's not enough, it's awful weather here. Decided to spend the half hour I had to wait for the next bus in the nearest grocery store. Went in, asphalt was black. Came out 10-15 minutes later, everything was white, and the snow was blowing sideways.
My hands are dry like sandpaper, and cracking up (been washing/antibac-ing MORE than enough times today, and yesterday as well...)
Wearing a mask everywhere is not helping, because today it's only been adding to my headache and general tiredness (I'm home, I CAN FINALLY BREATHE!!!)

Awful day...

Good thing I have a few days off now.

And a pet-peeve that's been bugging me for a while now, but why do people keep wearing single-use masks the wrong way out (colored side in), especially when everyone around them is wearing the mask the right side out? I mean... at some point they've got to realize something's off, but then I sometimes see them the next day with the mask the wrong way around again. And sometimes upside-down, too. Sometimes even the combination. One would think after one and a half years of restrictions people had at least gotten that under control. There's a difference between the sides, and the more plastic-y outside with the protection layer meant to stop stuff from coming in/out is not going to make it easier to breathe inside the mask (quite the opposite), while the inside meant to keep the moisture from your breath (and whatever else) in is doing nothing of that on the outside (maybe even picking up some extra gunk...). I guess it still does the job of a mask, but it must be uncomfortable breathing into that plastic-y layer.

Speaking of masks, bought two sets - identical size/shape and both were blue. Looked pretty much identical. However, one feels big, like it's made for someone with a ginormous chin. It also fogs up my glasses. The other would've been the perfect size (and causes less fog since the fit is better), except it squeezes my nose to the point where it just becomes extremely uncomfortable within the first half hour. The only thing that can possibly be different is the shape when they're stretched out, and/or the earloops, because otherwise I don't know. It's like wearing two completely different masks.

Someone at Ivy's school has covid. So I guess we're gonna have to test her for the next few days and it might be best to pull her out of school for a little bit just to be sure. Adam's been picking up extra shifts while I'm on maternity just to make ends meet so if he gets it we're screwed.

More snow! AUUUUGGGH!

I think I had my fill of cold weather.

Yesterday, an entire first response team, replete with fire engines, ambulances and squad cars showed up at my health center building before my physical therapy. Apparently, that was a cancellation I couldn't control. Then, the convenience store soda fountains were slammed with a power outage, so I had to buy a bottled soda.

Today was less than ideal. I had to fast until noon, I got jabbed with a needle with a thicker gauge for my blood draw, I had to eat lunch in the car with my father due to understaffing on account of weather. I'm still a little lightheaded because they took four vials of blood.

I just hope tomorrow is better.
