My rocky summer!

 I am cancer-free; they found it not cancerous(pre-cancerous cells remain in the esophagus), but there is still something wrong with the nodule they removed.  I have several appointments ahead.  My 16 year old passed her permit test, and I asked her if she wanted to drive us home, and she got in the eagerness to go. Her father and I took her for a couple of practice runs in the past.  She looked across at me and asked, " Which one is the gas?" That is when I knew I was in trouble. She began to use two feet, and I had her stop the car, and we held up traffic because we would have never made it home alive.  

My granddaughter showed so many signs of stress due to COVID.  She cried and said she misses her classmates and missed out on day camp. She is amongst thousands of children but hurt met to watch never the less. 

I have so many ups and downs with my partner at the time because we lived an hour and a half apart.  Due to the virus and my illnesses, we do not see one another like we use to.  I feel he pushes his opinions on me, and I am more comfortable in my home.  He is an intelligent and kind man, but he starts and having fits if I choose not to involve him more as he sees fit.  In the past, he has stated he was the man of the house, and before his wife died, he was the breadwinner.  I have been the head of my house and the breadwinner, and I believe there is a conflict there.  He tells me that his wife is dead and he is ready to move on, but when I said that after my surgery because he wanted to care for me at his house, but during that week, they were having dinner for her birthday, for the second time. He told me I may be uncomfortable or may want to return home, I decided to remain home and not take a long drive back and forth after surgery. I did have a wonderful dinner with his wonderful son at Season's 52(outdoor seating, of course).  I felt COVID 19 took more victims.  When people lose jobs or lose their partners due to this epidemic, then they too are casualties.

I took a chance and went to Florida before the surgery.  I wanted to see my son before surgery. I rented a mansion with an inground pool.  Having all my kids and grandchildren together, and my ex-husband was wonderful. I cooked a couple of meals, and we did a couple of TikTok's.  I was pleased that United made sure the seat beside me was vacant without paying for the seat.  If you have the written proof, people need to understand that their health and rights will be respected if you speak up.

I woke up from the surgery in a glass room, looking at people in hazmat suits.  I was so confused, but they stated the nodule needed testing and appeared to have signs of what I don't know.  I was a first responder during 9/11, and now the fun begins. I am applying to get my Master's and Ph.D. in mental family therapy.  I want to stay healthy, write more, and obtain more readers. Be safe with this upcoming Fall.

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 give 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 tha

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.


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.
