Hello everyone! I hope you are all safe and sound and not going to crazy? I know I have not written a blog lately, well I did one, but no views on it? But, I have been sick with a  nasty cold, at least I hope it is just a cold. So, I have not had much energy to do a lot, since I have other health issues too. Quarantine is pretty much my normal life, so this is not a big deal for me.

Yesterday was my 51st bday. I ended up sleeping all dang day. But, just as well. I live alone and can not afford to do anything, so sleep was actually needed. I am starting to feel better.

I learned some things about myself. I used to beat myself up all the time, when I would sleep like that(cause of health issues), but today I said no more. I will not care if I waste a day to sleep, cause my health needed it. Until, I can figure out what is wrong with me(on my 6th doctor) this is all I can do.

I am also going to force myself to do exercise, even if it is just walking in place. Maybe, I should attempt yoga? I have arthritis so my knees do not work that well. But, they say it is good to exercise even a half hour a day, so that is my new New Years resolution.

I am also going to learn a new skill a month, thanks to the library. Who needs to spend a lot of money on school, when you can use the library to get free skills. Just read a book or take their free online classes. Not sure if a degree is necessary for jobs anymore? I could be wrong. tho,the hard part is getting experience for a job, which is frustrating.

I did get an amazing gift yesterday. My son sent me a birthday email! He is 25 and autistic, and lives with his Father. I have not been able to see him in 5 years(really long story), so we keep in touch by email. But he never writes first, this time he did.I can not remember him ever saying happy birthday to me either. I cried for a good hour after that.

It is times like these, when you start realizing what is important, and appreciate the little things in life, cause they sometimes end up being the big things in life.

For all who have birthdays during these troubling times, Happy Birthday and hope you get to do something special, even if it is just to eat a piece of cake.

Luv, Renee
