Day of Hope - Covid-19 My personal view

We all need a little hope right now what with this pandemic. Covid-19 is no laughing matter but as I always say a laugh a day keeps the doctor away and these parody's made me laugh. Side note: you see there is no bucket list for this month that because I only have one wish for April- To live through this pandemic and maybe see it's decline!

I am under semi-voluntary house arrest ... why semi-voluntary? Because my children, grand-children & the Professor all figure I'm high risk but it's spring & I don't want to be stuck inside all the time! Even if it isn't that different from my life during the winter...

Stomp's foot! Damn it! It's Spring and I was looking forward to going outside again after the snows. Besides, it is annoying as hell knowing I can't go outside. Let me explain.

When it was my idea to stay indoors I liked it just fine but right now it feels like I'm 13 and grounded, again. I don't much like having other people control my life! I do what I must because quite frankly I am only 59 and I'm not ready to die yet.

That said, they say that if we take the proper precautions it will be gone by the end of April; if we don't it should be gone by August. Think about it people if we follow the rules we will at least get to see the lilacs bloom, if we don't we will miss not only the Spring but also most of the Summer.

I pity the world if that happens cause economy-wise we are going to have to start all over again plus the rate of parents killing children is going to quadruple! Imagine being stuck in the house with a couple of really bored kids when you yourself are bored! Definitely a recipe for disaster!

So let's give those poor parents a break and follow the rules!

Humans have overcome pandemics before & we will overcome this one as well. I could go into detail but that is more the Professors area than mine. Suffice it to say we are human and humans have a way of surviving anything!

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't.

If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time.

Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a fear of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic fears the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public.
Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment: Cognitive behavioral ther…

Hello March

May the sun be with us! Except with the quiet coming of March be on the lookout for at least one more big storm before the end of the month. I love the sun but I always hope March comes in like a lion so that it will go out like a lamb. I can deal with cold and snow early in the month but I always wish for the beauty of sun and green buds on the trees at the end of it.

So where did the phrase 'In like a lamb, out like a lion' come from?

There are several ideas:

While many sayings are base on observation and are accurate, others are the rhymes and beliefs of those who came before us.
Those folks actually believed that bad spirits could change the weather adversely, so they were cautious as to what they did or didn't do in certain situations.  Those beliefs also included ideas that there could be a balance in weather and in life. So if the weather came in bad, (like a lion) it could go out good and calm. (like a lamb)
Since March is such a changeable month in which we can see…

Women's Heart Health

February 1st - 7th is Women's Heart Health Awareness Week and I felt it would be remiss of me not to include some conversation about it here given that the professor suffered a heart attack a bit over two years ago and that I am a prime candidate.

Let us start with why I am a prime candidate - Obviously being 100 pounds overweight puts me in the high-risk area immediately. Add in High Chloresterol, physical inactivity, diabetes, post-menopausal and over 55. Since only two of those are needed to put me in the at-risk category that I have six means that I am very high risk. The only way it could be worse is if I still smoked or drank and still lived a high-stress life. Thank goodness for small miracles.
