Happy Valentine’s Day – The beloved husband had a masseuse come in to give us each a body massage. I’m a tactile person and he sure knows how to make me happy. We also had a pizza with it, one of my favorite meals. He’s a keeper for sure although I’m thinking I still need some chocolate.
Super Bowl aftermath – (Last post on it I promise!) Our local professional football team won the Super Bowl. It was like Christmas here. People were over the moon! Best local story — people put team tee-shirts on the gravestones of die-heart fans who have passed. This meant so much to so many people it’s ridiculous to think it was a football game. For a moment in time, people came together. It will be gone soon when we revert back to our old behavior!
On to the Olympics! – I love winter Olympics! The dare-devil stunts amaze me as does the speed and gracefulness of the athletes. I’m booked for the next two weeks! I should stock up on margaritas!
Seriously? – Facebook has a distorted profile of me. Yes, I get shoe ads on the side bar but lately it keeps showing me “baby gender reveal” parties for people I don’t know. I am so far from that world. My eggs are dead and no one in my family is expecting or planning to. I don’t care about the latest techniques to amaze your friends with your baby’s sex.
The flu – My grandfather (age 44) died of the Spanish flu in 1918. It also played a part in my father’s death (age 55) in 1958. I don’t take the flu lightly. I get the shot every year. I wash my hands often. If I think you are sick I will lecture you from 20 paces. I won’t let you near me. I don’t understand that people are taking this lightly. If you are sick, do not go out and spread it around. (Yes that means you don’t go to work!) People are dying from it and not just the very old and young. Don’t brag about not believing in shots. Or get all braggadocios about braving it out. Do what you can to protect yourself and those around you. Shame on you if you don’t.
So how was your week?
