Our state #s are weird, it's like 1101, 1164, 1089, 1083, 1276, 990 - by day since Monday. And the low #s are always on weekends, who knows why - test result return times vary pretty wildly here, from same-day to 10-days depending on where you get tested, so it's hard to find a pattern. Overall, the "trend" in that sequence of #'s, thought, isn't down. But because it dropped from 1164 to 1089, then to 1083, and ended at 990... I know people who think the trend is down. That 1276? Yeah, they think that's an anomaly, even though it's higher than last week's high #. :roll:
Guess they just don't know how to read numbers.

We are actually very lucky in Canada. Our numbers are very low in comparison (have to ask Hubby the weekly rate, I just watch our provinces. My province had 11 cases yesterday...but that while lower than the day before was still high. We had about 3 months where we had no infections.

.....you'd think I'd said I had personally seen Godzilla.... (LOL, LOL, my laugh for the day). I, too, occasionally get that look for one reason or another.

It's been well over a week since the flu shot and beyond a sore throat that might have been ragweed and mold spore related just as easily as anything else, I have no cold or flu symptoms.

Which only means DH will be bugging me about flu shots every year. Oh well, better safe than sorry, I guess.

Haven't had $ going out since Wednesday, not really planning on any expenditures before at least next Wednesday or Thursday & that'll just be a fresh fruit and veg run.

Took a long walk with the family last night. Jumped off something and fell (note to self: you are NOT 19 anymore, try to behave) twisted my hip wrong, bruised up a shin, but for some reason it struck me as hilarious and I laughed for a good 10 minutes when DH was saying 'you should probably be crying, cause this is going to hurt for a looong time.' Yeah, it doesn't feel great right now, LOL, but I'll recover. I will avoid jumping off things in the future, but I'll also look into some balance exercises, there's no reason I shouldn't have stuck that landing (it was a jump onto gravel, though, not the most stable spot to land).

It wasn't nearly as funny as around 10 years ago, we were walking in the "woods" at a state park and I went over a downed tree - with my hands in my pockets... smack into the fallen leaves and scrub. I went to see my chiropractor the next Monday and he said "What... have you done?" :lol:

To this day my kids tell me to take my hands out of my pockets when they see fallen trees or even just logs. Smart alecks ;)

I barely feel last week's goof today.
