Day 9…

So this gal is anemic again & has a thyroid being a little bitch and not working how it should. So I go in to see why my vision is off and why these migraines come to visit daily like an unwanted house guest, and instead, I find out other nonsense.

It’s funny that my ferritin is low again because, in my picture memories, it showed that I was getting an iron infusion this day last year. It’s like my body is on a cycle.

I can’t wait until I can go a year without my body reminding me who is in charge, and it seems this isn’t the year for that.

This day 2020. Funny how life repeats itself.

Day 4…

Sometimes we need time with our closest friends. We need to sip coffee, eat breakfast, and chat. The feeling of calm can fill our souls. I’m grateful for this morning with one of those women in my life. I enjoyed a walk first and then met up with her for some one-on-one talk. Perfect morning. Here’s to finding the beauty in each day.

Until tomorrow…..

Day 22 in a time of Covid-19…

So, a couple of days have past but it seems to be a trend that my weekends are about just being in the moment and not doing anything except it was a busy weekend…even from home.

This weekend I….

  1. Learned how to make masks and saw that my boyfriends really old shirts he wanted to turn into masks won’t work. You need somewhat thick fabric. He’s an artist though and has a vision and I’m not so we will see how our mask ends up. I think we are going to be one and done! Did you know you can make art out of the masks? It seems instead of making them we will be painting them. Stay tuned for images once we are done.
  2. Baked and cooked. I even made strawberry butter (photo below) for Easter, cooked a brisket in the crock pot (yum) and made my world famous green bean casserole for my little 19 year old daughter. I love that with each family holiday she looks forward to having it and enjoys it.
  3. Brought a meal to my elderly neighbor. Can’t wait to meet her after this is all over. Due to a mail mix up I’ve made a new friend.
  4. Hid a ton of plastic eggs, twice. PE for minors…check!
  5. Relaxed with my little’s and watched classic Disney films. Disney is pretty dark if you think about it.
  6. OMG I stayed in bed on Saturday until 2:30 pm and I felt lazy but it’s something I NEVER do! So nice to give in to the uncomfortable.

In all the weekend was excellent.

Yesterday we began school again for all after Spring Break and it’s so hard to work and juggle the boys school schedule. Today is a new day and we try again. I have this! One moment at a time we will figure out what works.

I also realized how little money I have left. I already live paycheck to paycheck but this is hard since my side hustle job ended with the death of a great CPA to a shitty disease in February right before all this happened. I’m living on less but I’m doing it and I’m remembering that I am in school (even during this) to better myself.

Here’s to another day, indoors, living life during this pandemic. Superstar, each of us for getting through each day!
