"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.

Nov 22, 2020 - I totally forgot to come in here to say the lung specialist said I had gotten some food in my lungs, probably when I laughed & snorted, lol. Anyway, I coughed up a huge piece of mucus and he figured whatever was there, came up. Gradually my cough got better & better and is almost gone now.

    Take time every day to do something ridiculous

    Anyone who says sunshine brings happiness has never danced in the rain. ~Author Unknown

    Life Its not about waiting for the storm to pass it about learning to dance in the rain

    Take more chances to dance more dances

    I can see you dancing down the halls at the your apt .

    Yes it very important not to beat your self up. the slip is done i did the beat my self think up for a while and i just kept slipping and getting no where but feeling sorry for my self and watching the scales move up . so leave the scales in the corner for at least 7 days ! Happy trails.

    There is one thing a quote does that nothing and no one can do.. It can become a part of you
    You may never meet the person who said it or shared it with you but that person can become a companion with you on your journey.

    Each step you take reveals a new Horizon. Have you taken the first step.

    Rather than fix my problems I am going to fix my thinking
    I am determined to become a healthy person
