"I THINK positive,.
Therefore I SPEAK positive;
Therefore I DO positive."

"Tomorrow" starts today!!

2020 - the year of the Coronavirus.
March 9 - I self-isolated.

April 25 - so it's been over a month and no end in sight. My niece picks up groceries for me every two weeks and brings them here. She's been the only person in my apt since March. My children stay away, afraid they may bring the virus to me. To be continued ...

May 16 - having a bad bout of Bronchitis, brought on by fragrances in my apt. I should not have any fragrance in here at all because it triggers the Bronchitis! All my Scentsy stuff plus candles are now packed up and my daughter Sue will pick them up tomorrow. What a sight my hair is, so long and unruly! When I can get it cut again, I'm going for the Gamin pixie style, cut right off!

July 15 - I've had a bad cough for several months, today I had extensive tests done at the hospital and they could not see the cause of it. I also had the test done for the Coronavirus and am okay in that dept, thank goodness. I go to my own doctor on the 28th and he'll figure out what's behind this cough.

July 24 - saw my own doctor and he told me I have COPD. That took the wind out of my sales for a while but then I'm okay with it now. It is what it is. I'm on a new puffer to take for life plus use my other puffer as well.

Aug 4 - The very first time I've gone grocery shopping since March 9th and wow, how different it is now. Store was fairly empty so we did well on my first time out, even went to the license bureau to have my OHIP and handicap sign for vehicle renewed. Lovely day!

Aug 5 - My 85th birthday and my niece Mame took me to the Red Lobster where I had my favourite Escargots for lunch! What a nice way to celebrate!

Sept 8 - Family doctor is sending me to a lung specialist, I have an appt to see him next month. My cough just won't go away and it is a bad one, have had it since February! Something is going on with my lungs, let's hope it isn't serious.

    Dancing is like dreaming with your feet! ~Constanze

    A friend on face book shared this .

    IF you FAIL never give up FAIL means
    F = First
    A = Attempt
    I = in
    L = Learning

    END is not the END
    E =Efforts
    N= Never
    D= Dies
    IF you get NO for a answer
    it just means
    N = NEW
    O = Opportunity

    2/21 You are not going to get the butt you want by sitting on it
    My world is expanding as my butt is shrinking
    Exercise is A reward not punishment for eating
    like your stand for your birds hope you had help getting it home.

    Thank you so much for the kind words and encouragement. I just never thought of me needing a cane. DH used one for years, but there comes a day when we have to face reality. My doctor kept saying I don't want you to fall. Thanks Gloria for being a true friend. I am so blessed with Family and Friends. Have a blessed day. Now got to get off this computer and get dressed and eat Brunch. One way to cut calories (combining breakfast and lunch). )
