There's always a new worry. Now it's about mail service.
We need a good mail service, especially this fall. This pandemic could make voting a nightmare in the fall.
Best Mail Carrier
I've been using the mail service a lot more in past months. I appreciate all the people who have made it possible for me to receive and send cards and letters.
Here is my favorite mail carrier of all time. Minouz no longer delivers our mail, but I think about her and all those who have been handling our deliveries during these stressful times.
Father's Day Package
On Monday, I packaged up some gifts for my dad. I should have made it easy with online shopping and shipping. But after over a dozen weeks of daily phone chats with my dad... I for the first time know what would actually delight my dad.
I ordered a few out of print books, related to stories my dad has told recently. I am grateful for all the memories and stories that have surfaced over these quarantine days.
Worn and Weary
Once packaged up, I made a trip to the post office. I could have just thrown a million stamps on the large envelope and tossed it in the box nearest my house. Just look at that sad postal box, where I mail my cards and letters.
But I headed to the Sugar Land post office and parked in front of the faded building. It was a reminder that the postal service could use some money. The interior looked just as weary.
I wore my mask and stood at the end of a long line. There were strips of yellow tape to keep us standing apart.
As I moved to the yellow line closest to the door, I studied the sloppy signs taped to the glass. Wow! Masks are required! I love it. I looked around and counted 13 people in both rooms. Everyone wore a mask. That made my day!
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!
