Zoom with Sibs
Everyone and everything seems so far away, during the pandemic. The upcoming holidays remind me of that. Don and I aren't the only isolated ones. Our 4 sibs (and spouses) and our 2 kids (and spouses) are in 5 different states. None of us are close to each other.
But our Zoom gatherings help so much. When Don and I zoomed with my sibs the other day, our daughter called. Everyone waved to Heidi. I love technology!
So Far Away
Some people are used to being far away. Don and I watched the launch of Spacex on Sunday.
Now, that is isolation! They can't step out onto the patio and enjoy a book, when they start feeling cooped up.
On Tuesday, Don dragged me out to the patio at 6:45pm. He keeps track of the Space Station and knows when we can view it from our yard. It was amazing to look up and see the light, slowly passing by... with 4 new members on board, from Spacex! Wow. We didn't even have to leave home for that bit of entertainment.
Far Away Neighbor
Today, I made use of the patio again. My friend visited for the first time. We live across the street from each other. That's not a long distance, but during a pandemic it is. It's been over 8 months since we've sat and talked. We greeted each other in masks, then had tea at opposite ends of the table and talked forever. After months, it suddenly she felt like we were across the street neighbors again.
Cancer - 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 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.
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!
