I usually love April. This year, the month includes Easter and my birthday. But this first day of April doesn't feel very festive. My favorite little bewildered-bunny decoration, seems to fit the mood of the season.
March was the longest Month that I have ever known. I think back to the first week, when I was still volunteering and going in stores and seeing friends. March 1st seems like 6 months ago.
I still use some good old paper calendars for trip planning.
The only thing that's not crossed out in April, is Easter. Easter isn't going away. Our visit with Heidi and Jamie In Austin was supposed to start yesterday. They are of course still in Oregon. I can't bring myself to cross off all our plans in May, that revolved around visiting Scott and Chali in Sacramento. Our October & November trip to Italy? Weeks ago I thought, surely it will be fine by them. I refuse to crumble these calendars up!
So today we did our duty and hunkered down to do the 2020 Census! We put aside hobbies and chores and got ready for some fun questions.
We turned the job of Filling Out The Census, into an activity. We were a little disappointed to realize it would only take 1 minute. We were expecting to have more fun.
It actually did make me ponder a little bit about how people will read these records one day. Will people (who care to examine) picture the people of 2020 Census, quarantined together in houses and apartments and trailers? Will the 2020 Census have a big, glowing spotlight on it? Or sadly, how much of this household info, that was due on April 1st, drastically change in coming months. Oh dear.
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me. I ranted for a year, until I got my vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was Don who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
