February 19, 2021 I meant to post yesterday when my counter was showing 100 days left until my retirement date. I got distracted by Nox’s pitiful behavior yesterday after having her teeth cleaned and didn’t get a screen shot showing the 100 day count down.Read More 99 Days Left before Retirement
February 1, 2021 Yesterday, Bruce and I went and got our second shingles vaccination shot. It stung a little when I got the shot and now the area hurts like a painful bruise. I compare this ache to the intense, unrelenting pain of shingles and know that I’ve made the right choice to get vaccinated […]Read More Second Shingles Vaccination, Ouch
January 1, 2021 It feels strange to write 2021. Parts of 2020 dripped by slowly and parts rushed by leaving me wondering what happened. Retirement is rushing up and we still haven’t bought our RV.

September 18, 2020 Bruce got his blood work results yesterday and found out that he had chickenpox as a child. He didn’t remember having chickenpox and his parents weren’t sure if he had them. Since he had chickenpox, he can get shingles. After seeing the problems I’ve had from shingles, he wants to avoid them. […]Read More Shingles Vaccine
September 12, 2020 Bruce and I had a bit of scare, we had been very afraid that the colon cancer had came back. He was having the same symptoms that he had had when they discovered he had stage 3 colon cancer 16 years ago. To our great relief, his colonoscopy came back clean! So, […]Read More New Diet for Bruce
