Supposed to get thunderstorms today which will knock all the dust/smoke out of the air so I can figure out whether this is air-quality related or whether I caught something while traveling. (My only symptoms are post-nasal drip and chest congestion, so not *that* Something.)

Hasn't rained yet but I am 99.9% sure I caught something. 😒

We were masked with everybody but family, but also one side of the family brought home a non-covid something from camp a few weeks ago so maybe that was it? So far, not serious but I am extremely happy I picked up an albuterol inhaler for the trip (because of the smoke). Didn't use it the whole trip but definitely using it now.

stilllll hasn't rained (though there have been fun storms, including a tornado, north of us)

Thinking of scheduling a covid test tomorrow, just for peace of mind.

Update: sending Carl over to pick up a home test kit, because I'm impatient, and also because I don't want to have a coughing jag on the way over and drive into a tree.

Taking pseudoephedrine every four hours yesterday seems to have knocked out most of the cough, but every now and then I get a little phlegm to which my body COMPLETELY overreacts. I mean, sure, for a split-second my airway is completely blocked, but it does not require *that* much violence to clear it. Ow.

Insert obligatory joke about it looking like a pregnancy test.
