My sister and I talk nearly every day but we haven't this week because her husband is home on vacation. I talked with her Christmas Day and Sunday but hadn't since then. I called her today to talk for just a few minutes. She told me she and her husband had been exposed to a people with Covid TWICE this week.
The first time was Sunday when she visited our mother who lives now with our younger brother. She got a call from Mom Wednesday telling her that one of our brother's sons (who still lives at home) had tested positive for Covid. This 24-year old has not had the vaccine nor has anyone else in that household of 7 people. (God will take care of them.) My mom included.
On Monday my sister and her husband visited with her son and his family. People there included her son, daughter-in-law, her two granddaughters (ages 11 & 13), her daughter-in-law's two older sons (in their early 20s) from an earlier marriage. My sister got a call Thursday that one of the sons had tested positive for Covid - Omicron variant. My sister's son and daughter-in-law are vaccinated/boosted but none of the kids are. No excuse for the two boys in their 20s. So my sister is isolating for the time being. The good news is she and her husband have both been vaccinated/boosted.
Myself, I haven't been anywhere. The only people I've been around in the past couple of weeks are my son and grandson. They came here today to help with housework. My son's entire family (including both boys ages 15 & 13) are vaccinated and boosted. I didn't go to his house Christmas Day because my ex and his wife were going to be there and they haven't been vaccinated. I was just being safe.
I wish people would just get the vaccine!!
Wow just speechless.. I hope this will be a wake up call to some people. Stay safe
People who refuse to listen don't get a wake up call. Those who decide that "God will take care of them" forget that "God helps those who help themselves".

My response to the "God will take care of them" is did they ever think that possibly God had a hand in helping the scientists to be able to make the vaccines so quickly and that are so effective?
Logic too often takes second place when people live on faith alone.
Hey lvlslgr - Here Here !! My thoughts exactly. A vaccine has never before been developed this quickly. As soon as China shared the genome on line, all the vaccination developers got to work. It was a Eureka moment.
There's a movie I watched on PBS a while back called Extra Life - A Short History Of Living Longer
Here's the link
It's a PBS movie but unfortunately I could not find the full version, which is about an hour long
If you or someone reading this has found the full version of Extra Life - a Short History of Living Longer, I hope you can share it with me. I've told many people about this show and I could tell them where to find it if I knew there was more than just a 3.5 minute preview. Thank you
I've stopped going into the grocery store again - doing store pickup instead. Bought new masks - I had been using cloth masks. My daughter was here for Thanksgiving so I'm not seeing anyone. There are definitely advantages to being an introvert.
There are a lot of people who have jobs and families that require them to be out and about. I just can't understand those who won't do what they can to protect themselves and others.

My son tells me I've been practicing "social distancing" for years. LOL
Back to work today. It seems like just yesterday I was looking at 17 days off, and now it is over. Going to go to the leave calendar straight away and book some more holidays so I have something to look forward to.
Work was chaotic this morning, as someone decided to cut all staff access off, so no one could get into their offices, or even the building their office was in. They wanted us all to have to go to security services to show our vaccine passes before our access was restored. Problem was, no one had told anyone about this, not even poor security services, who suddenly had a que of hundreds needing access restored. And as vaccines aren't mandatory (yet) they really shouldn't have done that. They finally got it sorted by early afternoon and gave everyone their access back.
Went to the pharmacy across the road from work at lunchtime and got my booster shot. So I'm all ready for when COVID actually arrives here, be it Delta or Omicron.
