Older sis is gearing up for second stem-cell transplant. While we were concerned about the first one making her so sick, her doctors say that she has bounced back more quickly than most, and are very pleased with the treatment regimen. . Fingers crossed for a continuation of good news there.

While we’ve been short handed at work, we have managed to somehow have enough staff to keep everyone safe. Definitely something to be thankful for!

Vaccines have begun at work. Mine is scheduled for this week. We may be overly naive, but my friends and I see this as a true turning point in the fight to get in front of Covid. Even some of the people who initially declined have started to change their minds and sign up for the vaccine.

I had both kids home for Christmas. Both. At the same time! Considering our jobs, that is unbelievable! We had to skip the family dinner at my mother’s this year. She was sheltering in place with older sis. But we had a very enjoyable celebration with our reduced numbers. So happy!

Got to spend the day with BFF1 yesterday. So relaxing! We went out to eat lunch and then strolled the historic district in a neighboring city. Masks in use, constant hand sanitizer, and socially distanced, of course. On our way home, we stopped off at BFF2’s house to deliver a lemon lavender cupcake. So actually got to see them both. Yay! And BFF2 has now changed her mind and committed to our 9/21 girls trip! She has even agreed to wear ears...

So many positives in the midst of the crisis! Many more than I can remember at the moment. Hope that everyone stays safe, and can find their own reasons to be glad.
Glad to hear you had such a great day! And even gladder to hear your vaccination is imminent!!

But deliver a lemon cupcake?! You are truly a better person than I.
"Cupcake, what cupcake?!" as I brushed the crumbs off my sweater.

Lemon lavender. Her fave, not mine. I had an ooey gooey buttercream. But not until later. I was still full from Olive Garden. Brought Tim a red velvet something or other, and a strawberry lemonade. He was happy.

2020 has been a year of ups and scary downs with many silver linings along the way. Today is my elder brother's birthday and 8 days from now will be a horrible anniversary. .

Much like 2020, he leaves behind lots a great memories so while I miss him, I still got to grow up with him and watch our kids develop into friends. He was a and, once the battle complete, an acceptor of fate.

I hope this vaccine is the conclusion of the virus engagement so we can accept our changed lives and continue onward having enjoyed a year at home with our animals, technologically continuing work and socialization, and a renewed acceptance of cleanliness!! LOL

Indeed. Not to mention a permanent change toward more physical distancing

Cheers.
