Covid Baby Shower
Drive-By Celebrations are odd. But I was actually thrilled to be invited to Leigh Anne's Drive-By Shower, in Austin. Don and I headed off this morning, with some wrapped gifts and a sign to hang out the window.
We pulled up to the obvious yard and rolled down the window... grinning behind our masks. Lauren spotted us in the window and got the attention of her pregnant sister.
We've know these sisters since they were 2 and 4 and lived across the street and played with our kids. There were lots of emotions shared through that window. Leigh Anne hadn't expected to see us and she began to cry... which got me crying and laughing. We talked about how excited we were that Leigh and Heidi were both expecting baby girls.
There was a ZOOM present opening later. It was fun to see Heidi joining the Zoom celebration from Oregon. I had dropped off gifts from her as well, but she missed out on the yummy cookies, that I got to eat.
I so wish the 2 girls were still living in the same town and could enjoy their pregnancies together. But in some ways the pandemic has at least made the distance closer. There would have been no Baby-Shower-Zooming, without Covid. Zooms and Drive-bys can be odd and awkward, but I'm glad we have them.
Cancer to Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 17, 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.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
