had to come up with new distractions

Tuesday, September 22, 2020

good morning - I am a traveler and this isolation is so hard for my DH & me at times. Today I got up and just wanted to see something new - traveling wise. I turned on a travel show about South America. I could just see my mood become much lighter. It was a tremendous outlet. emoticon Tried to get an appointment for a Yellow Fever vaccine yesterday. If you are 60 or older, you need to get your doctor's approval. I just had a physical in August so I hope I do not have to go back in and get something else. I should find out something soon. When one travels like DH and I do, you have to give yourself time to check all the boxes. I want to get this shot b/4 COVID vaccine which will be a 2 shot vaccine next year. yellow fever is a vaccine which as a doctor said to me - is a hard vaccine to take. That is why the pre-cautions for someone older. One might have pre-existing conditions. I have a checklist and I am always reviewing what we need and make sure everything is in good shape in a timely matter. I am the planner in the house. The only thing DH plans is his photo gear. I do all the reservations and the schedules. I have been traveling since the age of 19. I do not plan to stop unless I can no longer enjoy the journey and still are mentally and physically able. Anyway, I am in a much better mood. have a good day! I know I will now. emoticon emoticon

    Good for you for finding a way to still get a flavor of traveling. Yes, it is very hard having to stay close to home. I do love the travel shows. At least you get a flavor of where they're visiting.


    I am the planner in the house, too.
