If it weren't for this pending check ride it might just be the end of me. You'd think Christmas would keep me busy but I'm not on top of it. I won't go into stores and the things I ordered on-line are delayed until the end of January. We might just have a dinner here … Continue reading Flying & Studying
Here we go again... I've been such a Debbie Downer lately, hard to snap out of with this. I better pull it together or the next 5 weeks (that turned into months last time) are going to suck. Lucky I got to go on a mini-trip to Tahoe to gear up, a little, for this. … Continue reading Stay Home Order, California
I'm in Tahoe, on my 3rd kind of staycation this year and it's looking like it will all shut down again for essential travel. What a shitty year this has been on so many levels. I've been hanging tough, until today where even I'm (over)due for a nervous break down. Thanks Trump, thanks Newsome, and … Continue reading Screaming into a Pillow
We have a lot to be thankful for, most recently booting Trump. He's still throwing around lawsuits, but even Fox news seems to be distancing from the insanity and realizing that he's a Republican cancer for their party. Already the cable news is less daily drama while Trump goes back to the avarice from which … Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving!!
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
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
