Handful Part 2

Good Evening,

    I had the most readers on my Handful blog.  When I wrote that, I just had finished helping my daughter by keeping her daughters for a while who were 6 weeks and 5 years old at the time. Along with everyone else, I am stuck inside, running from a virus that we can not see.  I am at high risk of catching it from dying or being put on a ventilator if they can find one.  I was babysitting part-time, cooking for my friends, daughters, grandchildren, and occasionally for my ex-husband.  I started advising them that they need to stay home because they were still working jobs that were not conducive to my illnesses while this epidemic is running rapidly worldwide.  They seemed to take it personally, and their coworkers were falling ill right in front of them, and they felt lonely and wanted to continually come over to my house.  I once again could not find my voice.  I have a loudmouth, and I am a strong-willed woman who just could not say no.  I felt they did not care about my life.  I made excuses like, they just love me so much, they love going to the store for me, and they love my cooking.   This past Easter Sunday, they thought I was going to plan a big meal.  I said no, I forgot it was even Easter with all that is going on right now.  That did not stop them from coming, nor did it stop me from cooking pasta, fries, and chicken fingers.  I finally gathered the strength to say I do not want any of you to come back after the Easter egg hunt and all. I hope it was not too late. I am beginning to learn to just say no, and that just does not work for me.

Quarantine!!!!

Hello, my friends,     I hope everyone is doing well and stayed safe and healthy today.  I hope I receive some followers and comments from those who are reading this blog.  We can all use some ideas outside of dancing(which is a great source of releasing stress).  I alI so hope to reach those who are not well and tell you that we all are wishing a fast recovery no matter what is ailing you.  I am not going to you the #we are alone together because we are not.  Some of us are single and alone.  Some of us are talking to a pet, some of us( like myself) are single parents, some of us have annoying spouses right about now, and some of us thought have 5 or 6 kids was a good idea up until today.  But seriously,  I hope we all are getting through this in a positive, upbeat manner.  I am here, and I will be checking my blog all-day to make sure I am here for you.  So leave a comment if you just want to be heard.  Soon I will start a podcast and work on my YouTube channel to keep that on a mo

Handful

I haven't posted in a while.  I had to come back to New York to sell my home.  I became so busy with visiting friends and family.  I started to realize again, I seem to have difficulty saying no. And not saying no makes me sad, ashamed, and weak.  I am anxious to go back.  I also would love to have conversations started, whether positive or negative. I see, and I am ecstatic that I have readers, but I let them down because I was disappointed in how many and no followers.  I wonder who was really out there? I really want to connect to those I never met in person. I also bought a new puppy due to the grief I felt after losing mine.  This was another kneejerk thing that I had done.  This puppy eats everything and bites and chases everyone.  A bad time is an understatement, with the move and looking forward to beginning classes and concentrate on me.  I have to let go and let live.

Quarantine and children

    We are now our children's teachers, and I struggled to help my high school daughter with her work.  I would like for us to share with others some websites or information they may. We can not blame others if we do not get involved.  There are elderly grandparents raising grandchildren who may not understand how the new curriculum is being taught today.  Some parents have turned to homeschool websites.  You can google high school math or look up blogs for preschools. You can also download zoom and have your child get on with other students to study together while you monitor what they are doing.  Help those you may know are ill, and children may need your help via phone, skype, or zoom.   Good luck and stay safe and healthy.  If you like my blog, please follow.
