These are some shows that Don and I got hooked on, during the pandemic.
I'm glad there's a light at the end of this pandemic tunnel, but I'm also running out of time. We've had 12 Covid months and I haven't accomplished wonderful things. I haven't made much of a dent in the list of shows and movies I want to see.
Last night we watched the Golden Globe Awards and I was reminded of more shows. We watched in our Airbnb, on the TV that rests on 2 boot boxes. I'm so glad Don ordered this TV and didn't listen to me 7 weeks ago when I said, "I don't care if there's no TV in here. We can just read!"
It was cozy, sitting in our pajama pants, quietly watching the ceremony. We looked like some of the actors, who were filmed at home in their jammies. After a year of pandemic, I'm getting used to all the virtual ceremonies and celebrations.
Virtual Golden Globes
Usually I skip the Golden Globes and gear up for Academy Awards. But in these past 12 months, I've learned to welcome all TV celebrations.
There were actually many sweet moments. These faces above, were indeed my favorites. Someday I won't recognize all these faces, but they all made me happy.
What I Will Remember
This ad for Frida Mom's, may go down in my memory, more than the show. When I saw the realistic commercial aimed towards new moms, I texted my daughter.
She had already heard about the controversial ad, that shows more breast than any TV ad in the past. I'm sure some oldsters booed this shocking ad, but I cheered. I would have appreciated this 34 years ago when I struggled to do what I had thought was supposed to come naturally. My stress would have been eased, had I known other new moms were fumbling and hurting like me. This whole "Breast is Best" world puts a lot of pressure on women.
I didn't have great success with breastfeeding, back in the day. I would have appreciated some guidance. I craved more alone time, to figure things out. But there were visitors and outings to navigate, along with my awkward nursing skills...
Wait! How dare I complain. New mamas like Heidi have just dealt with 9 months of pandemic pregnancy. They continue to be restricted and isolated, if they are cautious new mothers. I hope before long, Heidi can safely meet up with other moms and share support and tips. Until then, cheers for technology.
Man, I could have used Google, back in the 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!
