Last day of isolation! Negative test, woot woot!

That wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be. The only rough day was Day 1, when I was most definitely ill. But with the help of Paxlovid, I quickly got better. Other than the usual morning coughing fit, and the fatigue, everything else is tracking 100%. Most sources say that will all go away in another 2-3 weeks, so I’m hopeful.

The benefit of isolating in my basement office/craft room/quarantine quarters, is that I’m surrounded by half-finished projects. Yesterday, I added a few inches to a pair of socks that I’m knitting. Today I used the Cricut Maker to whip up a couple thank you cards. That was a lot of fun, as I don’t often have time to play with the Cricut.

Lighting is off, because basement, but I love how they turned out. I especially like my faux lined envelope hack. I just cut the envelope out of a piece of scrapbook paper that’s white on one side, and fold it pretty side in. The cut file is from the Design Space Marketplace, it was only $0.99. I wish I used my Maker enough to justify the monthly subscription, but for now, just buying one-off projects is working well for me.

Kenzie has clearly passed the caring stage. Yesterday, she slid her Dollar Tree fake nails under my door and asked me to paint them for her. This morning, she slid me a half-slice of bacon, with one bite missing.

Tonight, Jeff is making ribeyes and baked potatoes for my last isolation meal. I’m so excited to be past this.


Distracted, working mom seeking short escapes from a hectic life via quick crafts and fast food. Sure, she could meditate, after she cleans the house.
