I’m vaccinated but getting very nervous about the delta variant. I’m reading a lot about pretty bad breakthrough cases. My husband is immunocompromised (but vaccinated). Most people at my office don’t seem to care at all about Covid, we don’t have a mask policy, etc. I’m getting really nervous about spending so much time in the office. Ugh

Anyone else experiencing texting fatigue during the pandemic? I love my friends, but after a full day on zoom calls the last thing I want to do is talk or text about the minutiae of everyday life. I feel like once a week or every couple of days is a happy medium for me. I know my friends mean well and they’re great, but the constant texting is wearing me out! Curious if other people feel this way?
