2021 CoViD-19: US Surpasses 20 Million Cases | Funeral Homes Out of Space | Torrey Pines Bluff Collapse On Video |

Tonight on the news, Dr Anish Majadan from LA being interviewed said, "the risk that you take will kill someone else in your community," but apparently that message doesn't matter when you see people out just living their lives like normal. We hadn't left our house since Christmas but Nova had a low-level fever all week and then complained about 'itchy toes' and I kinda freaked out and frantically read everything I could about COVID-toes and so we finally went in for tests yesterday. Nova and I both tested negative and it was nice we got our result less than 24 hours later, but it's also kinda traumatizing that Darren didn't get his back yet. We figure his will come back on Sunday, but it's nice to feel we're in the clear--until we go back into the world and risk exposures. We got grocery delivery today and I kinda hate the thought of making someone go do my shopping so it will be nice to hit Costco again sometime soon. I also took advantage of an Uber Eats promo for $30 off and to use up $25 I had in my Uber wallet and we got a deep dish, calzone, and salad from DiMille's. I also hate the thought of making someone pick up my food and the cut Uber takes from the restaurant, but we were feeling in an isolation rut until the tests came back and wanted to use up my money instead of letting Uber have it. 
We're watching The Midnight Sky on Netflix tonight, so I'm gonna cut out and get to it.
