Tomorrow is Election Day 2020
Got to keep calm. I've been using my helpful bookmark.
Don and I calmed the stress and went on a walk this morning. We heard some exotic music playing as we approached the gazebo. This dear woman looks motionless in my photo, but her fluid movements, magically matched the music. Hmm? Maybe I need to try a little of that.
I met a friend on her patio for lunch. I have not shared a social meal with anyone besides family in over half a year. But this was the most positive thing I could do for my mental health today.
Four years ago, I had lunch with this friend, the day after election day. There was no pandemic, but I was dealing with cancer. She had offered to accompany me to my radiation treatment and then go to lunch. We had hoped to celebrate a victory that day. But no.
This time we chose to have lunch, the day before the election. We talked and worried over the outcome. I told her (and everyone else I've talked to today,
"I'm like a kid on Christmas Eve. I've been a good girl. I'm hoping for that bike. The anticipation is wonderful and I'm enjoying every moment. If there's no bike tomorrow, then at least I had a good day today!"
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!
