There's a few glimmer of hope peepholes for 2021, this promising vaccine for one. The other pending glimmer is a new president, which Trump is fighting tooth & nail against. Guilliani should have just stayed a 9/11 hero, he's now the frontman for the most absurd election in U.S. History. I shouldn't say that, it … Continue reading Getting Through 2020
Biden/Harris won!!! We still need to deal with the Trump sized tantrum to follow, along with the lawsuits he's threatened. Even Fox News seems to have accepted the results. Of course, Trumpers are crying fraud and I have to wonder if that's what got him there in the first place? Bullying people at the polls, … Continue reading The Election is Over!!
To 5.8 since another birthday rolled around. Despite COVID and the elections, it was a great bday weekend with clear skies and nice outdoor dining weather. I flew to Monterey for lunch, it almost seemed like 2019 again? Then the Honey Boo Boo elections struck this week with HBB type tantrums to follow. It's not … Continue reading I’ve upgraded
Got word that another friend who was battling with lung cancer all year finally lost. He was a huge Dodgers fan, I'd like to think he went out after the Dodgers won the world series the other night. We said our goodbyes a few months ago down at the beach we'd gone to as kids. … Continue reading Another Obit
It wasn't quite the October from previous years, where I'm going from city to city for giant parties. In March when everything shut down, quickly I started planning October and pre-paying to have something to look forward to in our supposed 2 week shut down. Cancelled:Weekend 1 - Hometown Fair and my 40th HS reunionWeekend … Continue reading October 2020 Wrap up
I wrote this right before the pandemic: https://helleren.blog/2020/02/12/california-week/ It's a 3 hour drive from my house to Mendocino. Places are opening up with masks and heavy duty hand sanitizers that leave you with dry, cracked hands by the end of a shopping trip. It's crowded too!! Downtown Mendocino is a cute, half day type of … Continue reading Finally, a Trip!
Just got back from the pool, where instead of breaking my previous swim records I walked across talking to a woman who was swimming with a noodle. It was nice to get the gravity off of my back and just chat with someone...and GET OUT OF THE HOUSE!!! Yesterday was a few slow walks to … Continue reading Back is a little better
This sucks, back stuff is the worst. I feel so stupid, old & weak 🙁 I've been feeling really good after my last episode 6 mos ago when I sprinted to catch up with my son and his dog only to feel immediate pain and flag down someone to call my husband. This one was … Continue reading Back brought me down
The best month to propel us to a dark Winter. Alright, California isn't a bad place to live for Winter, but still. Last weekend was odd, instead of the Hometown Fair it was a beach memorial for a good friend. This weekend would be Fleet Week in San Francisco, next weekend Stair Climb in Bisbee … Continue reading October Dreams
Today was another friends memorial, I've lost so many friends this year it's sometimes feels like a life war zone. I can't tell if it's just my age that peers are dropping?? It's just been tough. But I just can't stop thinking about Trump and COVID. Here's what I really don't get AT ALL - … Continue reading Late Night thoughts about this insanity…
