*Iím almost afraid to say it aloud, even in a whisper: 2 people have offered sincere help. Iím trepidatious but very hopeful.

*Itís great you brought a mask. Now put it on.


What are you wary of saying aloud?

Heading to an In Person appointment at the the Pain Clinic
hoping the PA listens:
need detailed blood work ordered
new ortho doctor brought into the loop
medications from 5 different doctors reviewed
possibly referral to 6th specialist


thinking back to the good old days
Living in tents and cabins under watch of God,
He made the pathways that our feet have trod.
We camp together, paddle down the stream,
Watch for a sunrise, share our fondest dreams.
Our life is sharing and a chance to give,
Friendships that last as long as we shall live.
We live to love, and love to live for all these wonderful things,
Oh, boomdiada, boomdiada, boomdiada, boom, (2X)

Whispering all the things:

Iím not mad/sad that ex is not speaking to me. Its actually helping me!

Iím going to miss my crazy, whining, never leaving my side kids while they are with ex for 1.5 weeks.

Iím really struggling with willpower. Itís soooo hard.

We're invited two couples to sit on our patio this evening and visit. I'm pretty nervous. It almost feels like anxiety.



On the good side: I've lived in this house for 37 years. We planted the many trees decades ago that now make our back yard (half an acre) look like a park. We've had a very very wet spring and my shade garden and sun garden are producing gigantic flowers and foliage. Last week we hired a gardener to remove a few bushes, dig a new flower, bed repair some of our borders, and replace our mulch. The last time we personally replaced our mulch it took 100 bags of mulch so having a gardner do it this year was huge. My backyard is beyond lovely this year. For the past five years, I've wanted to move to condo and have been disappointed that I'm still in my too-big home but now I'm grateful that we're still here. We can't go anywhere but our back yard feels like a vacation. I feel so fortunate that I still live here.

Is that too much to "whisper"?

Enjoy the your too big house and the peaceful park back yard as long as you can. I can just envision sitting in your yard sipping lemonade while listening to the birds sing.

I really want to shout this, but no one is listening. Sometimes people listen better to a whisper.

Iím freaking out about going back to a classroom of students! I have nightmares all the time. Now we have a positive Covid case in our school district! OMG!

Please, please please let DD go back to school.
I am scared she may go back to school and be alone.

to DS: GROW UP and mature! You are 17!

My son's employer finally said their workload hasn't increased enough to rehire him, and he should look for another job. He is very poor at interviewing (on the autism spectrum). When he was unemployed the last time, he became an unbearable human being. I don't think I can go through that again on top of COVID-19.


I wish my younger son felt comfortable enough to come and see us. He lives three hours away. Our area is doing much better than his. I really want to ask him - are you afraid of us or for us?

I just returned from 3 days at my 89-year-old mother's house. I spent the days vacuuming, dusting, washing and ironing curtains, washing windows, weeding the garden, and entertaining my Mom. When I returned home I had to do laundry and clean up cat barf. I want to ask my DH why he couldn't have taken care of that while I was gone?????!!!!!!!

I was nervous to go to the dentist as well. My dentist wore 2 masks, plus a shield. Plus she wore scrubs and something over her hair. I felt much more comfortable because I know that she was protecting the both of us. Good luck! I hope your appointment goes well.

Please read the social distancing instructions at the grocery counters and store aisles. I am tired of seeing folks go the wrong way and crowd the deli counter when there are multiple signs asking customers to stay behind the red line the store marked.

Do not pick the end/beginning of an aisle to have a long conversation of your phone. People would like to quickly pass you.

DH slips by carrying my favorite insulated grocery bag. I canít imagine what he needs it for. I ask. He is shading his new veggie seedlings

It is now mysteriously replaced (no words) with a double brown shopping bag and my favorite bag is back home.

I want DD to go back to work. She had been offered a little part time at swim center. She needs new playmates besides DD and myself.
