1st Vaccine and Other Updates

March 15th, 2021 at 10:16 pm

Last Friday I received my first Moderna vaccine dose. Other then a sore arm I had no side effects at all. My second dose is scheduled for early April. The college I worked at is a vaccine site so it was very convenient, and the process was very smooth. There was no line, and I was in and out pretty quickly. Most of the time spent was the 15 minute observation time. I'm glad to have round one completed!

I finally got a haircut on Saturday. It was my first cut since July and I really needed it. I have decided to let my hair go gray and no longer color it. So far it seems to be blending in well and I don't hate it yet. My hair feels so much healthier and I sure didn't miss the cost. I spent $60 for my cut and style, and a very generous tip. 

On the financial front, I will be receiving a $5822 federal refund, a $516 state refund (already recieved this one) and the $1400 stimulus for a total of $7738! I knew I would be getting a large federal refund but this was larger then expected. I do plan to spend some of this on a new laptop and printer. I have also been pricing treadmills but I am still on the fence about it. The rest will go to savings. 

My state has relaxed most retail and restaurant restrictions on capacity limits, but have kept the mask mandate and distancing mandates in place. I saw that at my salon on Saturday. There were a few too many people in there for my liking but everyone was masked and I didn't get close to anyone except my stylist. I'm really glad to be on my way to being fully vaccinated. 

Have a great week everyone!

    Let me echo Grateful Saver: my second shot of Moderna made me feel yucky for 2 days after. Still grateful for it!
    Great refund.!
    Our hair salon is now in a kind of condo of salons-- smallish individual spaces along a hallway. Just one on one with new ventilation. Feels safe; hope it is.

    OK, I typed first, autocorrect changed it to second and it won't let me edit. Anyway, glad you got your vaccine and hope the second one isn't bad.
