Everybody tells me to watch funny movies and shows that make me laugh. That's too bad because I have a long list of movies I'm eager to get caught up on and they're mostly dramas. But I do love watching classic comedies, like, "Some Like it Hot" and "It Happened One Night". And I have lots of favorite old comedy stars who make me laugh. It's sort of embarrassing to admit that I'm a fan of Jerry Lewis. I also adore Charlie Chaplin. There's something nice about watching and laughing, without sound.
Nothing Calm About TV
TV is another thing. You turn it on and get caught. If CNN is showing Trump I have to listen a minute, because there's a lot of outrageous humor in the political race these days. But there's nothing calming or stress relieving about it!
The Olympics! What a great distraction from some of the horrific news we've had this summer and the exhausting politics! I love watching the "Final 5" US Gymnasts and Michael Phelps win... how many gold medals? But I'll be honest, the cheering and noise and hoopla wears me out. 3 weeks of Olympics? But it's been fun watching the best parts with Don, who is the most enthused fan ever.
And when I've had enough, I know I can go read. Most of all I can relax, knowing that Don is a happy camper, watching all the taped events I don't care about.
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!
