I don't even know the date today, but I think there are about two more weeks until Christmas Eve. I haven't bought one gift, but need to get busy and write checks for my grandchildren! They would probably rather buy something they want anyway.
This just doesn't seem like Christmas or anything special in any way. Covid has messed up every-thing in our lives, and could well have been prevented, or at least kept to a minimum of damage. Someone should be held accountable and charged with refusing to stop the spread of it early on. To be truthful, I don't think he particularly wanted to stop it.
I'm still watching the videos of WW-II photographs. The only problem is that while a fake voice is reading the description of the picture on the screen, there is music in the background that is so annoying it's hard to describe. It is happy, jolly marching music, and the same track runs over and over. It is a bit incongruous hearing this lively music while the photos show deceased and injured war victims and scenes of war. There are very few happy, jolly, or lively photos in the thousands I've seen so far, but they are very beautiful and touching in their own way. If I turn off the sound, then I have to read the captions which are in very small print, so I'd rather hear the narration and try to tolerate the music.
We had a bit of rain today - not enough to make much difference, although it's a harbinger of the rains we hope will come soon.
I've had numerous tests and scans and everything seems to look ok. But why do I still have "spells" that only last a few seconds, but I know something isn't right. I just hope it isn't dangerous, lol. A couple of weeks ago I was walking a mile every day on my treadmill, but have given up on it. I just feel so "down", and probably will feel that way until it's deemed ok to go shopping! A slow trip through Costco or Target would probably do wonders for my mood. But they are saying the virus will be active for the next few months, and I hope I can last!
Well folks, I would sure like to skip Christmas this year, but I have to give something to the kids. Other than that, I am not leaving my house to go anywhere on Christmas. It certainly is not "Merry" this year and I'm just too old to fake it anymore. I hope all of you have a better attitude than I do, lol.
