Too often I ask myself, where are our elected Democrats? We have a pandemic, massive protests, and rioting occurring right now in our nation! Now is the time to be with the people—not speaking to us on TV, not tweeting, not Zooming, not doing robocalls or e-mails. We need you with we the people. We… Continue reading Democrats: Where are you?!
Pay It Forward, and Backward
The hubby and I were talking a little earlier today about how fortunate we are right now in terms of our employment. We both have jobs in which we have been able to work from home. I’m still getting full pay, he is at 80%. During the Indiana hunkering down, we’ve been able to help… Continue reading Pay It Forward, and Backward
Winter, Winter, Winter
Please, someone call winter and tell let it know it has overstayed its welcome! One day it’s sunny and nice, lovely weather to mow, plant a shrub, lay some grass, etc. Then bam! Rain and chilly yesterday. Bam again! Today it was overcast with a wind that went right through you. With wind chill it… Continue reading Winter, Winter, Winter
ACEs and Resilience
Today the movie Resilience was streaming free if one had reserved a ticket to do so in advance. Many of my coworkers had spoken highly of the short documentary. It is about Adverse Childhood Experiences and resilience in the face of adversity. The documentary was good, but in a bad way. I say good because… Continue reading ACEs and Resilience
The Passage of Time has Changed
April sure did take a long time to get here. January and February flew by, then it was March. March started normally, then all of a sudden, you know what hit the fan. School is canceled, work must be done at home, and stay-at-home order goes into effect. Time, and the passage thereof, shifted. The… Continue reading The Passage of Time has Changed
Plain and Simple, We Are F*
I have no words today. After reading and listening throughout the day about how doctors are being fired, health professionals are being silenced, medical personnel quitting because they no longer have equipment to keep them safe, hospitals not wanting the truth to be told, and how all of the workers above are getting sick themselves,… Continue reading Plain and Simple, We Are F*
A Plethera of Curiosity
COVID-19 has come into my inner circle. I found out a friend is showing symptoms, but won’t know the results of the test until Sunday or Monday. Then I found out someone I had worked closely with has a loved one on her way to the emergency room showing COVID-19 symptoms. All within an hour… Continue reading A Plethera of Curiosity
As you all know, my grandson had to be hospitalized two weeks ago. Here is an update on his current condition. He is still critical and stable. There was a build-up of mucus they had to drain as it was accumulating in his lungs. His doctor says it is highly likely there won’t be any… Continue reading Grandson Update
How Are You Helping Others During the Pandemic?
I’m not writing this to boast or float my own boat. I’m writing today to provide ways one can help during this trying time, especially if you are still working because you can work from home. Today I volunteered for Gleaners Community Food Bank. Work is allowing us to volunteer at community agencies during our… Continue reading How Are You Helping Others During the Pandemic?
I am a Worrier
If it is true one’s worries are what turns one’s hair gray, you’d see I worry, a lot. I think it is both hereditary and because I’m an educator (teachers never stop thinking about their students, even 20 years after they had them in class). My current worries, which are mainly due, but not entirely,… Continue reading I am a Worrier
