It's been a little over a week since I got my first vaccine and I feel like complete crapola. I'm not sick...no fever, sore throat, aches, pains, etc. Just extremely tired, no energy either mentally or physically, afraid to venture too far from the homestead.

I helped out at my kids' school on Friday by working in the cafeteria. I had to help the little kids make salads at the salad bar, wipe the tables ...
