A Covid-19 Degree More Difficult

I lost a step yesterday. Monday, I woke up with more energy than I had in months since taking on MIL’s fulltime care. I got out for a run, I bought a coffee, and I savoured the sunshine and budding trees as I power walked home. Tuesday, my cat died, for all intent and purpose, …
