Welcome Back Readers~
I’m sorry I let another two months go by without posting anything. But things have been quite hectic around here. Let me give you a quick overview before getting into the main topic of today’s blog.
My 41st birthday-It was pretty quiet around here for my birthday. Except for a few surprises of birthday balloons and a bouquet of wildflowers chosen by my dad, there were no surprises. Since my mother took care of my nieces for a week, we all decided to go to Olive Garden; it was pretty nice. Elizabeth even went out of her way to ask the waiter to “Decorate” my dessert with a Happy Birthday label with candy confetti. It was kind of cute.
Getting The Vaccine- In several posts, I have debated on getting the vaccine. Well, I finally got on the list and waited for an email. In April, they emailed with my opportunity to get the vaccine. I took it. At that time, though, they only gave it in specific locations; this time, it was a college. I received Moderma. The first shot wasn’t too bad with just an achy arm; the second dose (three weeks later) was what did me in. I didn’t sleep well that night, and eventually, I forced myself to get up. Fighting congestion and body aches, I tried to get something done; But it was useless. It wasn’t until my assistant suggested getting Pedialyte and Gatorade and we got it that I started feeling better. I know it sounds like a weird concoction, but it works!
Elevator Construction- If you’ve been following me long enough, you’ve probably heard me rant about my family’s troubles trying to get an elevator installed in our house. For those of you that are new, I will spare you the details except to say they are finally making progress. But it’s been a tough road full of confusion as well as disappointment. Here are a few pictures highlighting the making of the shaft for the elevator.
