Very thankful to have a week each month remote on my project. Let's be real, we don't need to be on the client site every week.
I have benefitted so much from WFH. I’ve had more time to cook, exercise, and get more sleep. The dread of returning to the office is getting to me and I hope we don’t have to return to the office again soon.

Does the amount of "Breakthrough Cases" rising among those fully vaccinated make anyone... wonder? Now there's a "Delta+" variant? Now they are saying "No vaccine is 100% effective so this is to be expected"? As if we're just suppose to shrug our shoulders after they have been pressuring everyone to get the vaccine? I'm fully vaxed but I can't help but wonder... this is what the Anti-Vaxers have been warning and saying the whole time and it's making me second guess which side I'm on...
