In past years Don and I have put on blinders to avoid seeing all the repairs and updating chores that are needed, on our 20-year-old house. We've taken trips instead. But if I'd known I was going to be spending so much time at home, staring at that annoying crack in the paint or this worn carpet, maybe I would have done something earlier... so I could enjoy this home, that I actually really do care about.
So I did one wise and silly thing during those weeks I waited before surgery. I dragged out some of the fun stuff. I set up a "beach table" near the couch where I've spent a lot of time. And then I added a few July 4th goodies during that first week, while taking it easy. The paint and repairs can come later. This is all I need now!
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!
