I'm about to finish my Fire Tech class. Also beginning to start all my FEMA required classes for next fire season. Here's to hoping I earn a spot on a Type 2(IA) Handcrew.

A free $50 fuel card, courtesy of my credit card rewards program, arrived today.

I started therapy last week, and it's covered by my insurance. And I've been getting some stim toys for myself and nice things for my apartment. And I got a refund for the HP laptop that was supposed to replace my Dell--at least the Dell is still working! Going to look into a smaller Chromebook to take with me to work instead.

And even more good news I forgot to share--I am fully vaccinated against the plague!  :-[

Just because you have protection doesn't mean you can go tempting fate. Would immediately walk around the bad parts of town calling people out just because you got a bulletproof vest? You may have gotten the vaccine but the virus a living thing and evolution is relentless. The moment you get careless and complacent you're gonna get sick. Keep your mask on, keep out of crowds and remember, even if you don't get sick there's a chance you could be carrying it. So don't take chances.

Let's put the blame where it belongs here. it's not the drug companies fault we will all need booster shots. It's republicans, right wing media, Q and others who are doing their best to keep this virus alive and killing.

Getting a primary doc for the first time in years. And right here in the town I live in. It's good news as long as he doesn't have anything to tell me. :)

No, it's biology. Several vaccines often require booster shots. That's just the nature of the beast. But when a virus is this prolific new strains are inevitable. That doesn't mean the vaccine is pointless, some protection is better than none, but needing a booster is just how this vaccine (plus many others) works.

Kay and Kobuk-I appreciate your concern and I understand what you mean--I am still wearing my mask around others and staying home 95% of the time. I know the vaccine is just a start and that future vaccinations/boosters will be necessary. I know the biology of viruses, I have a degree in Biology, so I am well aware of the risks right now.

I just thought it was good news to share.

I guess not.  :'(

I'm sorry, Iara.  :( I should have wished you Congrats, but instead my comments came off as something else and warned you that people may need another shot and such. I removed my original comments and instead wished you congratulations on getting vaccinated.

Concern is caring. It's all good.

My new brace came in TODAY!!! You know your getting old when you get excited over medical devices.  :D My left knee will now be supported by velcro, spandex and stainless steel. I'm becoming a cyborg. Perhaps Protogen should be my next furnsona. :)

Kobuk-Thank you for the apology, I appreciate it. These are tough times and it's hard to know who is/isn't being responsible, so I get where you were coming from. It just wasn't a good night for me. Things are better now, though, and again, thank you.

In other good news, I got two VHS tapes from my childhood--Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast--for less than $25 total! Woot! I am so happy to have these pieces of my childhood back again.

Got my second Moderna covid vaccine shot today. :) Feels good to be fully vaccinated now. Feels good to know that I am protecting not just myself, but my family, friends, neighbors, etc. by getting vaccinated. And I got the vaccine shots not because of pressure, or political reasons, but for the simple fact that I want to live. I choose life over death.

For all the other whiny crybaby people who stubbornly refuse to get vaccinated due to various reasons, I say..........GROW UP!  >:(

Thanks Kobuk, I understand.  Same reason here.  I feel liberated, and proud I can't lend a hand to the virus.  And I can't understand why a vaccine would even be considered political.  Don't all groups get sick as easily? Anyway...
People do not seem to realize that we got lucky, super lucky.
It could have been a virus which scientists could not make a vaccine for.  Or it could have been a virus that outright killed and maimed a higher percentage of people than it did.  Here in US and other 1st world places, the death toll may be bad, but our supportive care is good.  It could have been worse. 
Just get the vaccine so we can end this thing and move on.

My good news is that my dog is being okay since I am working from home today.

Just got my second vax shot today!!! Time to get back to some normalcy. Tonight I'll be 'shopping at curbbies'. That's when you drive around like a stalker and look for things you might need that's been taken to the curb. Great way to find free wood.  This weekend I'll be yard saling and going to thrift stores. I'll still be masked but now free to move as i wish! In a few weeks I'll be visiting my mom. The last time we saw each other was Christmas 2019. Going to have a big meal and sit around and sit around and watch TV.

A new todd fox visited my backyard a few times last week. My Mom warned me not to pet it.

Got offered a new job! Probably still going to be pretty stressful as it's retail, but on the bright side it's something I already know how to do!

My good news is that work place seems to be listening to people now that one of our best and brightest engineers left the company.  Shook people up bad.
So maybe now they can listen and fix things so no more people leave.
