Mondays with Marnie | The Variant Ate My Newsletter!

Well, what a Holiday that was!! I don’t have to tell you that it was and still is 83 degrees. Covid is alive and well and most of us have been sick or know someone who has been sick. 

The testing for Covid is harder to get than it was in the beginning of the pandemic. Once you get a test, good luck hearing back about your results anytime soon. I tested negative despite being in a house with positive people. 

The good news around my house is that everyone is on the mend and should be healthy to start the New Year. There are only a few days left of 2021 and even though I did not get this out on Monday as planned, I wanted to send one last note for the year. 

Thank you, yes YOU.

 I am grateful that you spend the time to read Mondays with Marnie, the energy to share it with your friends and all of your replies. 

Looking forward to spending 2022 with all of you!
