I made it!
Tuesday, October 20, 2020
This past week has been a hard week for me on several fronts. October 14 was Brittany’s birthday and she was sick, went to walk-in clinic and tested positive for strep and had a COVID test. Thursday she had a quick test and it was positive. Friday her husband (Fischer) took the test and he is positive. Now they are staying at a cabin 2 hours from me with poor phone service and don’t hear much from them. Sunday was Ashley’s birthday, the fourth one since he died in 2016. I made it and keep myself busy, even making an ornament after church. Of all Sunday’s we did not church that night and I had a “wonderful” day by myself after Sunday morning church. I had thought I was going to have lunch with DD Donna and her family but that didn’t happen. I gave myself a big pep talk and told myself to pull up my big girl panties and don’t have a pity party. Only had a little one but it did not include food which is my usual go to when I have a pity party.
As far as I know Brittany and Fischer are not having fever but they are still coughing big time. I keep telling myself God has this under control and I am staying away from binge eating, just eating 3 meals a day and only a little snack after exercise class.
Hope everyone is doing well and staying strong. Please remember my family in your prayers. Thanks.
