Status report: all systems finally normal!

Three weeks to the day after I woke up with no sense of taste or smell, things finally feel normal around hereI triaged my shipping queue on Sunday and most pending orders went out yesterday, with the rest going out this afternoon; from here on out I expect shipping to be more or less normal and new shinies should start showing up tomorrow or maybe even later today if I drink enough coffee.

Status Report: on the mend?

I have now managed to go 36 hours without my fever returning! Halfway to freedom! This is very exciting and hopefully I haven't just jinxed myself.

I've also managed to get most of the website sorted out, and have support tickets in for a couple of things that I haven't been able to get working properly, so that's progress...

Website redesign!

Since I'm still spiking a fever at least once a day and can't go back to work yet, I needed to do SOMETHING, and... apparently that something was completely redoing the website? I figured this this is probably as good a time as I'm ever going to have to intentionally break things, since it's not like I'm seeing a ton of traffic at the moment.

Status Report: nope, still not working

So I'm mostly recovered from the plague! This is excellent! Or it would be, if not for the fact that I kept thinking I was fine and then I'd take my temperature and the low-grade fever would be back, and then I'd say bad words and grumpily add another 72 hours onto how long it would be before I could even consider going back to work. Apparently this is a fun feature of the very end of mild COVID-19 cases?

Status Report: still not working

Remember how I very optimistically said maybe I'd work on writing tutorials or overhauling the website last week? Uh, yeah, I wildly overestimated my ability to function while fighting off the plague. Basically, I spent an entire week just... being flat, and occasionally being able to focus long enough to read or talk to people.

Status Report: well, THAT happened.

Okay. So. First of all: I AM OKAY and I have every intention of staying that way. But.

I began showing symptoms consistent with the milder cases of COVID-19 on Tuesday morning. (In hindsight they actually started mid-day Monday, but it wasn’t at all obvious - more on that in a bit.)

Weekly Roundup: Quarantine Edition

So today is basically just a repeat of last week, which is good because today was a hair washing day and since I haven’t bothered with anything more than throwing my damp hair into a bun since... uh, mid-January? I decided to actually Do My Hair today and thus my entire morning involved arguing with my hair and styling implements. (I am in fact typing this on my phone with one hand while the other hand is doing the diffusing thing in hopes that my hair will be mostly dry by bedtime.) Also I may have lost an argument with a towel and I don’t want to talk about it.
