I caught the 'rona. Damnit!


 I can’t believe it’s already mid May! In just a few more days, I’ll be done with my Spring semester at Cal Poly. I am registered for Summer – hoping to shorten my last two semesters by 1-2 classes just so I don’t have to feel the pressure or burden as we’re returning back to in person classes. I am already dreading my drive from Pasadena to Pomona during rush hour.  Not to mention that I have 4 in person classes in the Fall, with one of my classes meeting on Saturday mornings! Fun times! I know it’ll be a struggle when it comes to wedding season, I am not sure if I am prepared for this. Wish me luck!!!

You know that saying, “the universe will never give you more than you can handle”? I try to live by that saying or phrase but good grief, give a girl a break!! I had a few final projects lined up as well as finals during Mother’s Day week/weekend. Lo & behold, I tested positive for covid right before Mother’s Day! I had to stop accepting Mother’s Day orders early, just so I can delegate the orders that I already had. To top it off, I had to complete my projects and final exams while fighting a fever, chills, headaches and eventually, coughs. I had to be isolated and quarantined for 10 days from work. In fact, I am still in isolation from my husband. We haven’t slept in the same bed in almost 2 weeks, I tested positive for 2 weeks and finally tested negative just earlier this evening. I’m not sure how I was able to manage, but I did. So far, I have aced 4 of my 5 finals. My last final is this coming Thursday. I am due back at the office this week and back to juggling graduation orders in the upcoming weeks! WHEW!!! So glad that the “rush” is over.

Why would my life ever be “easy”? It hasn’t felt “easy” in several years now. Since meeting Joey, my life has been on the GO, GO, GO. I feel like such a horrible wife. I was still working my ass off while fighting covid, instead of resting. Joey had to care of me everyday in the last two weeks. He’d check in on me multiple times during the day, bringing me food and drinks, taking my temperature, bringing me meds and even driving me to places I needed to go. He’s been such an amazing and supportive partner during my time of need. I still can’t believe how lucky I am to have such a wonderful person by my side. Hopefully once I’m done with school, I can dedicate more time and attention to my husband. He deserves to be spoiled too.
