So this last week was interesting with some personal ups and downs. On Tuesday I got my fourth COVID-19 vaccination and our two youngest kids, affectionately known as K3 and K4, got their third shots. Yeah. Wednesday was the last day of school and the beginning of summer. Yeah! And on Friday we found out that K4 (7) got COVID-19. Hrmpf. But she's doing fine, just sitting in a room all by herself reading, crafting and endlessly watching some stuff on the iPad while munching on some snacks she just ordered from her parents. I on the other hand had to practice lots of self-restraint as I conveniently forgot about the vaccination and got new running shoes and then the doctor told me I shouldn't do any sports before Monday. I went running yesterday, just a short loop. Great shoes, will take them on a longer loop on Sunday Morning. Also, I bought K3 (10) her first running shoes as she'll be doing track & field summer camp next week. Aside from that: great news from London as Boris Johnson finally stepped back as head of the Tories and hopefully will be out of office soon. I just wish we could turn back time as I hate having Britain outside of Europe. Without further ado, here are five articles I enjoyed reading and that probably made me a tiny bit smarter.
