I’m Ready for NORMAL LIFE (Not the current “Normal)

This. This is my “Thank God it’s Friday” face… even though I work Saturdays.

My TGIF Face!

I miss weekends when I got together with friends (plural) for dinner, or coffee, or a movie.

I miss having a social life!

Laughing with friends (or commiserating) lightens our load… and let’s face it, no matter WHO you are the load has been heavy since this time last year.

I’m ready for a return to life of gathering with friends.

Easter is coming and I’m ready to join in the annual tradition of gathering with my friend’s family for food and fun.

Spring is coming… I’m ready for picnics, beach parties, and kids laughter.

I’m ready to not be afraid because I have allergies and my runny nose, sneezing and coughing are going to scare EVERYONE into thinking I have The Plague.

I’m ready to give up the mask! To not feel like I’m constantly choking on my own air to make others feel safe.

I’m ready for CHANGE! Back to the normal I’m used to, not this insanity we are currently living in.

Peace 🥰

Coming Down Fast & Hard

Winter 2021: Snow, Snow, and more Snow!

I think we’re making up for the past few years of unusual warm Winters🤣.

Last week: almost 2 feet, today 5-7 inches… we shall see 🤔. The rest of the week is calling for a few inches almost EVERY DAY 😖.

I DO love the snow. The impact it has on my job as a Home Healthcare Scheduler, not so much. The worry over caregivers not getting to clients, clients need care but don’t have anyone to clear driveways. 🤦🏻‍♀️

Definitely having a white winter!

Be Proud, Be Strong

Pinterest

I know it’s been AGES since I’ve Blogged. Apologies to the few faithful followers.

I think we can all agree 2020 has been a challenge.

A shout out to those who are taking the 2020 challenge as an opportunity to embrace their inner strength and forge ahead! For myself, I vacillate between”forge ahead!” and “hide my head in the sand!” (Or under a blanket…

However you are making it through: feeling successful, stuck, or just hanging on… props for NOT GIVING UP.

Blessings

Choosing Your Words

Is there anything to say that does not offend someone?

In today’s world of “politically correct” and “micro aggressions” is ANY SPEECH safe from ridicule?

I feel like all the joy in conversation and debate has been taken away. I am rarely at ease anymore with anyone. Always worried something I say will be taken as argumentative, offensive, or even hurtful.

I miss the days of throwing out a thought, opinion, or observation, and then having an in-depth conversation over its merits or lack there of. Is it meaningful? Does it have validity? Is there evidence for or against? What experience do you provide to support or object? Have we learned something new?

I feel stagnant in this culture of divisiveness. You can only share ideas, opinions or thoughts that agree or you are labeled intolerant!

When did the very definition of intolerance loose its meaning?

I’m trying to think back to WHEN, exactly, we crossed this line where freedom of speech is only acceptable if you agree. I really can’t put my finger on when.., I just know now, that no one has the ability to laugh at themselves, see the reality in the ridiculous, the humor in the stereotype.
