travel, covid 

So although we didn't make a big fuss about it before/during (house was sitting empty and we haven't gotten the video surveillance thingies set back up), we went back to Kansas for a belated Christmas visit. TBH if Carl's mom wasn't ending every email with "X days left!" I would have postponed because ugh. Family cooked, or we picked up to-go meals for everyone, which was nice because turns out a lot of the stress in visiting is dealing with a large family group in a restaurant.

Wichita does not mask up nearly as much as their lower vax numbers mean they should. We masked up to make a grocery run and MIL informed us that the grocery no longer required it; I responded with "but *we* require it." We didn't run into any pushback from strangers, even at the Redneck Walmart.

We didn't leave the airport in either St. Louis or Denver, despite extended layovers. Masking was reasonably well adhered to in the airports. Saw no pax misbehavior either.

So hopefully we minimized our risks; we have a big fat nothing on our calendar for the next couple weeks so it'll be a sort of informal post-travel quarantine. I've been masking up locally already because of the air quality, so that won't change.

Currently playing the game "is this cough just 'welcome back to NJ air quality alerts' or breakthrough covid?"

(98% sure it's the former. Shoulda kept my mask on every minute I was outside yesterday.)
