    It's been a while since I posted here. So, I figured why not? I'm still married, and my daughter is 4. I got laid off from my job working IT at a bus company and work IT as a temp for a non-profit Health Center. It's quite rewarding because I know by doing a good job I'm able to help medical providers have the tools to assist patients.

    Part of my job is to set up laptops for covid testing stations on a daily basis. This setup consists of a table, laptop, printer, DYMO label printer, and Topaz Signature Pad. Patients come into tents to get tested, and the medical provider takes down the patient info in the EMR (Electronic Medical Record) system. It's really cool because I get to gain experience working with an EMR. In my case it's EClinicalWorks, which is a pretty nifty system.

    It's still good to hear from anyone in the old crew.

    Such hearing as I have left. I've recently discovered that I can't hear the high pitched sound of my own smoke alarms anymore... :p

    Not too bad, just getting old and trying to figure out what it all means?!

    Oh and I'm building a tiny house.

    When you finally get old enough not to care, you realize that meaning is what you give to it all, rather than what you take from it all... ;)

    I keep telling myself that very thing. A positive note: after retiring, I got my first tax refund in 40 years. I almost didn't know what to do. I've had to come up with extra taxes for
    so long, that getting money back was a strange thing indeed.

    Glad to hear everyone's doing pretty well and that we're all getting older at least.

    Life has certainly presented some challenges.

    Must be nice. The country I live in still has restrictions plus whatever the Navy decides to place upon us.

    Actually, here, there's so much confusion about the CDC changes, that absolutely nothing has changed.

    I get my second Moderna dose this Friday. I hope to get back home before shot 2 kicks me in the padonkadonk. All the futile attempts to navigate the State and County web-based processes to sign up for a vaccination at some distant site yet always ended in some weird chicken-or-egg requirement, and I ended up just signing up easy-peasy at the local Walgreens, not 10 minutes (by bicycle) from where I live. ... our tax dollars at work. yay.

    I got my second shot of Moderna on Sunday. I only had a really sore arm the following day. Drink a lot of water the day before and day of the shot.
    Commissar Smersh says thanks for this.

    Got the same advice for my Pfizer - water and Advil.

    First shot sucked though with headaches and insomnia for a week. Second shot though only a sore arm/shoulder for a couple days.

    Yeah, CO has been on the ball with vaccinations. Plus half the state thinks it’s all a fake conspiracy so it was probably easiest just to rip the bandaid off and open everything up.

    Well, I got my second shot Friday, and aside from some fatigue and a slight headache, I thought I got through it okay. I changed my mind about that however, when I reached into my pants pocket... and realized I'd been walking around a half day with my pants on backwards...

    Or maybe it's just the first signs of my imminent fall into senile dementia...

    It's kind of like the Office Space Meme "we fixed the problem" basically, gave the people willing to get the vaccine ample time to do so and let the other half sort themselves out.

    I got the Pfizer set. The first gave me slight aches and pains with slight headache for about 3 days. The second kicked my ass with 102 degree fever for 1 day.
    I hear you. This state is the same. Online conspiracies have been overriding people's common sense for the whole time. On this matter I tend to follow the science after applying my
    BS and politics filters.
