Hard to Distract
It's March 17th and I put on green to lift the gloomy feeling. I tried to let the silly holiday distract me, but the Covid news was always lurking, whether I was reading, playing piano, cleaning or sorting.
I put coffee in my Irish cup this morning.
After lunch, I went on a walk and enjoyed the bluebonnets.
But seeing a few others out walking, I sensed that we all felt uncertain. No one knows what the rules are yet.
Later, I talked to my friend in Chicago. She talked about walking 2 miles to vote, to avoid public transportation. She talked about her city, with no St. Pat's parade and no green river. I told her that a week ago, our Houston Rodeo had been shut down 11 days early.
Embracing our Irish
But by evening, I let go of the worry for a while.
Don and I celebrated with green beverages and corned beef and cabbage. We blasted some Irish jig music and I got out my goofy dancing friend.
Happy St. Patrick's 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!
