I have historically preferred to make the week of my birthday a, well, week-long thing. It was slightly muted last year, but non-existent the year before. This year, I've decided mostly that I need to delay it. We're doing a cruise in a few weeks, and cruising is of course contingent on not having Covid. So mostly I'm going to be doing nothing, kind of a self-imposed quarantine. Diana had her second booster since she's over 50, and Simon had his first, so even relative to the newer omicron variants, they're less likely to get it, though no one is really 100% able to avoid it.
It's an annoying situation, because immunity is presumably waning to some degree, and the bivalent boosters won't be here until the fall. This particular cruise is important because it is an inaugural sailing, and those don't come around very often.
But I did get a pedicure yesterday, so that's a good start. Might work on something else this weekend, we'll see.
