Me too, but the doctor told me to cut down on the excessive sugars.

So I eat mine on the car, away from the wife reminding me of that

The fir needles from the neighbors tree add up fast and a whole other issue. We trade walnuts and walnut leaves for needles. Gorgeous trees just messy.

The day after you feel like garbage it’s like nothing ever occurred. Your back to normal or at least for most it goes that way!!

I'll let you know tomorrow.   Had my second shot today.  Tents set up at the fairgrounds; shot given by an Air Force women in fatigues.  It hurt... jab and plunge in one motion.  I got out of there before the 35-45 mph winds hit.  I haven't heard that they closed it up, but I'm not sure how those tents would hold up.

I highly recommend Speed Queen washers.  They are old fashioned and actually use water & an agitator while cleaning the clothes.  We had a water saver style that rolled the clothes and I had times I brushed dirt off my work pants taking them out of the washer....I hated that thing.  

The Speed Queen has an econo setting for low water use if you have a light load but it also has a deep fill option that gets used for my work clothes and it works!  

Ditto on the Speed Queen.  A little over a year ago we bought our new(er) house, and we asked the previous owners to leave all the appliances.  They were building a new house, so likely wanted new anyway.  Our old appliances stayed at our old house.  Our old washer and dryer was actually quite new Samsungs without the agitator.  I'm not sure how energy saving it was because the normal cycles were over an hour long.  Our new house has older Speed Queens W/D and while the capacity is less, they do a great job.  

When we saw the previous owners after they moved into their new house, the one appliance they said they regret leaving with us was the Bosch dishwasher.  They bought another Bosch, but said it's not as good as ours.  We love it too!!  We didn't have one at our old house; it sure beats Kenny B getting dishpan hands!!

Congratulations!!  Hope you have better experience than I had.  First shot, was a sore arm for 3 days.  Not bad.  I'm in my 2nd day of my 2nd shot;  arm sore (about the same), achy all over, slight fever.  I'm not complaining because I've talked to people that had it worse.  Hope I feel better tomorrow... 9:46 tee time!!

2nd shot of Moderna today.  No ill effects since the shot 10 hours ago.  Arm's a tad bit sore mainly at the entry point of the needle, but not to the point of impairment in any capacity.  I had no effects from the first shot except for a slight pain at the injection site.  I did skip playing today as scheduled, but that was more to the rain and lower 40 temps.  Supposed to play tomorrow, but the forecast appears to be more of the same.

My wife, on the other hand, had her first shot yesterday.  She felt a bit wonky all day yesterday and again today with improvement throughout the day.  Of course, she feels effects from one aspirin, so.....

My mom had absolutely no side effects, was at work after her 2nd shot.

My wife on the other hand had a really bad headache the entire day after her 2nd shot, and some chills like she had a fever. I told her it's because she never played outside as a kid and she's a weaksauce zoomer 😂

I’m 39, wife 38, both of us Moderna and both were body aches and yuck the day after the 2nd. 
 

My parents are in their mid-late 60’s and both were Moderna. Following the second dose they each said they felt fine. 
 

It looks like there is a certain window among 25-45 yo who seem to have the most significant immune responses and based upon what Dr. Gottlieb and Fauci have said that is a good thing!

Funny you mention it.  Pretty tired today. Arm where I had injection is super sore. Some joint pain. Not much of an appetite. But started feeling better later in the day.
