Erica Scott: Life, Love and Spanking

Ruminations, opinionated observations, darkly humorous blathering and the occasional rant from an outspoken spanko and unapologetic attention wh–, um, hog.

On the Twelfth Day of COVID…

…I tested negative!

I will test again midweek, just to be double-double sure, but I think I am good to go. Not 100% — still have a lingering cough and a bit of congestion, and I tire easily. Feel like I’m getting over a cold. Overall, I cannot complain.

My desire to play hasn’t come back yet, but I suspect it will very soon. I am missing John terribly. I didn’t see him the weekend of the party, and I’ve stayed away from him the past two weekends. As it happens, this coming weekend, he’s having a bunch of construction done at his house — his front deck is being completely rebuilt. It will take all day Saturday and Sunday, and my garage space will be filled with construction detritus. Park on the street? It’s the canyon. Parking on only one side, and his street is filled with his neighbors’ cars. Plus I need a parking permit. Plus there will be hours of hammering, drilling and sawing. Upshot? Looks like I’m not going there next weekend either. 😦 And considering Thursday is my birthday, this realllllly sucks.

BUT. It’s temporary. We’ll have a belated celebration. I’ve waited this long; I can wait a little longer. And guess what? Still no regrets whatsoever. I’d do it again. I needed that party. I needed that burst of life. Am I now ready to throw all caution to the wind? Hell, no. COVID is still very much a reality. And now I can’t get the new bivalent booster for three months. Meh. So I’ll be antisocial during the holidays. Considering I hate the damn things anyway, that doesn’t exactly break my heart.

Ooooh! If all goes according to plan, I am being interviewed via Zoom by Jillian Keenan tomorrow for one of her Kinking Out Loud videos. This was supposed to happen two weeks ago, but had to be postponed due to COVID. Stay tuned!

  1. So glad you tested negative. You’ll be feeling better in another two weeks or so. You’ll have a great belated birthday celebration,

  2. Glad to hear you are on the mend. Sucks about not seeing John and having to wait for the booster shot. Silver lining is you don’t have to attend functions you don’t like.
    I really can’t wait to see your interview with Jillian. Hopefully she won’t edit you down to a minute or 2.

    Chibob — I always like having an excuse to avoid holiday hoopla.

  4. I don’t know if this is any consolation, but isn’t the main reason we can’t get the new booster for 3 months after having covid because getting covid is thought to give about that much solid immunity? And 3 months from now will give let you get the shot in mid December, which will give you peak immunity going into what seems to be the worst time of year for covid cases. I know… bright-siding is a pain in the ass, sorry. 😂

    I came down with covid two days before my birthday. Total bummer. Fortunately the only other person in my family to get it was my son, and he had a stuffy nose for literally a day then he was back to normal.

    At any rate I’m glad you’re recovering and I hope you’re able to have a good belated birthday spanking some time soon!

  5. We are getting our bivalent boosters on Thursday. That will be the fifth shots we’ve had.
    Does the test come with instructions? Just wondering because C and T aren’t intuitive. It looks exactly like a parvo test I saw on a recent episode of Pit Bulls and Parolees.

    Hugs,

  7. Xen — I actually like that bright-siding! It makes sense. Ugh — two days before your birthday? That sucks!

    Hermione — (laughing) Yes, they come with detailed instructions and pictures. I don’t even know what C and T stand for. All I know is when I was testing positive, there was a line under T as well. I need to Google that…

    Jean Marie — actually, it’s Thursday, but I’m milking it for the whole week. Thanks!

  9. I’m very happy you’re getting over this, and especially that the vaccinations kept it from being any more debilitating! May the reunion soon with your best beloved be all he sweeter for the forced time apart, and knowing that you’ve kept him safer!
    Meanwhile, I’m looking forward to the interview with you and Jillian!
