I can't believe it's a new month! It's a cold, drizzly day in Portland, but there's a lot of good ahead, this month.
Things like, new grandbaby arrival and Mardi Gras! I'm glad I packed jewelry that works for both!
I glanced at the news this morning and this chart was dismal, like the weather.
All the focus has been about vaccines, but today I was reminded that people are still dying. This chart is an alarming reminder.
The vaccine roll-out is still a mess. As expected, many who need it most aren't able to get the vaccine.
It's frustrating to know that some people (with money or connections) are able to beat the system to get vaccines. I'm sure plenty of deniers are getting the vaccine also.
I'm glad for anyone to get the vaccine actually. But, I'm sort of worried about navigating this half vaccinated world. We're told to still mask up after vaccines, but I sense that people are in a rush to ease up. My dad's assisted living center has had the first vaccine. They're opening up to visitors. Why not just be safe a little longer! My 92 year old dad has made it this far!
I saw the governor of W. Virginia, on the news. He has the same southern twang as the guy who cleans our pool. He doesn't look or sound smart, but his state has had the most success of all states, in getting folks vaccinated.
It will be a long time before Don and I have access to vaccines. We're a long way from our home in Texas. We're in Oregon, where things are lagging behind. But, I'm glad to see that 25 million have received the first dose. Maybe by the time Don and I can get vaccinated, we'll be able to get the Johnson & Johnson. Only one shot. Hmm?
By the end of February, who knows where we'll be with all this. It's a short month, but a lot can happen.
We don't know where we'll be at the end of this month with Covid, but we do know, there will be a new baby in this world! She's due in a week, so she'll be our February focus... and March and April and May... and forever!
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!
