Happiness as a Choice

Even the dog gets it. I had struggled with autoimmune diseases for years prior to contracting Covid-19. I am a member of various Facebook groups and have social media friends that share my struggles. I have been able to connect with some great people in real life. One I even met at mile 13 of … Continue reading Happiness as a Choice

Adios 2020, and everyone else? Quit your complaining!!!

I would like to anoint 2020 not as the year of Covid, but the year no one stopped complaining...ever. Every time I thought we reached the moment that it would quit, new things were found to complain about. Sometimes it was hilarious. But most of the people complaining? Didn’t really have much to complain about … Continue reading Adios 2020, and everyone else? Quit your complaining!!!

Wrapping Up 2020

“Broken Arrow” captured by yours truly. It’s been an experience. Whenever my husband and I talk about things that aren’t so great in life, he does such a good job of framing it as part of life’s experiences. how could we appreciate the magical if everything was wonderful all the time? I think about where … Continue reading Wrapping Up 2020

Eating in A Tent in the Winter

A local eatery trying to make it work in 2020. On Tuesday, I had the pleasure of meeting a friend for dinner. She is a teacher, and coupled with my Covid, we had not seen each other since August!

Covid Weapons

Since it has become clear that Covid-19 is not letting up, I thought I would spend a blog post on items we found particularly important while recuperating from the virus. The two most important things you MUST have on hand are a good working thermometer (make sure you have back up batteries) and a pulse … Continue reading Covid Weapons

For God’s Sake – Testing!

The New York Times has an excellent article about testing in today’s paper. What I like about today’s article is that it transcends the usual political arguments between the two parties. At this point it is clear that the Democrats want to throw a lot of money at the virus, but there is not a … Continue reading For God’s Sake – Testing!

Neurological Covid

Covid is a strange disease. I look forward to learning more about it in the future - since that is how science works. I chuckle listening to people who have never had it talk about it as though they know anything. Unless you’ve had it, work in the medical profession with Covid patients in a … Continue reading Neurological Covid

Because of Covid …
