Let's Chat, Little Corner of Mine, Personal Thoughts

As January is coming to a close, I look back at this month and I'm ready for it to be over. We go into the new year with resolutions and hopes for the year but I did none of that for 2022. January was hard. We were at the height of our latest Covid wave, we had to transition to a week and a half of virtual school and then we sent our kids back to school with no idea how the next few weeks would play out. My provincial government restricted PCR testing, moved to rapid tests (very difficult to get ahold of) and we are no longer going to be told if there's a positive case in the classroom until 60% are absent. 60%...yes that's correct. It felt very uncertain, no new measures were put into place. It felt less "safe" than before the Christmas break. I'm happy to say my husband and I were able to receive our booster vaccines and my son was able to get his second vaccination. So, all in all, I know we've done our best and I can only pray that if we do get Covid, it shouldn't require us to be hospitalized. I am thankful to have rapid tests on hand since the school has been distributing them to elementary-age children. It's been frustrating, scary, and overwhelming but I'm trying to look for positives where I can find them.
