Weekly: Blurred vision

I was so busy with other things, that the market week feels like a blur. I did make some trades, mostly erring on what I see as the side of extra caution. I didn't navigate the big dip and big rally very well. Rarely do I. I tend to balance back towards delta neutral and this results in whipsaws on the short sharp moves.

Here are the trades, not much stands out in my mind. A lot of cautious chicken-ish trades for not much premium, at a high probability. (c = calls, p = puts, sell means sell-to-open, cover means buy-to-close, all are 3rd week expiration unless noted).
