There I was, standing in a paper “gown,” staring out the picture window at the beautiful view waiting for my dermatologist to come into the exam room. At one point, a fisherman motored by in his boat to pull up traps spaced along the dock. Maybe the traps were nothing but a ruse so he could come in closer to the building to see if there were any twenty year olds getting their annual mole checks..🤔
Poor guy..sorry to disappoint..HAHA! Lucky for him this old bod of mine was completely wrapped.. and masked!
Only in Florida..😅
Poor old Florida.. Corona is really doing a number on it. We’ve had over 40 Covid deaths since February in our county and this morning our local sheriff added another layer to the sad situation; cops have responded to 131 drug overdoses so far this year- 23 of them fatal..three deaths in the last week-end alone. These are huge increases from last year and he said he had no doubt that this Corona sh*! show is partially to blame.
It got me thinking about the mental toll this pandemic is having. I have friends who are truly fighting off depression at this point. Heck, there are days that I really struggle to put a smile on my face.. which is one of the reasons why I purchased a bucket-list book for me and my husband to fill out.
Now I know that bucket lists are supposed to be full of once in a lifetime, fantasy trips to Thailand etc..but let’s face it..we’re living in a time when a trip to the dermatologist feels like a big deal, right? Our bucket list won’t be a list of the MAJOR stuff we want to do before we croak, it’s gonna be a list of the NORMAL things we hope we can do again soon..like visit our kids..or go to our favorite restaurant for a long, lazy dinner..a week-end get-away to the Keys…or a trip to Busch Gardens..that kind of “normal” stuff.
Last night we added our first item to the book: we bought tickets to see David Foster in concert..
in FEBRUARY..as in 2021.
Believe it or not, the seats were 3/4 sold..so others must be filling in their own bucket lists. We watched a FABULOUS documentary on Foster’s life on NETFLIX the other day. For anyone over the age of 45, I HIGHLY recommend you watch it with the volume turned up high. You will recognize and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the music!!
Anyway..here’s the deal: it feels SOOOO good to have purchased tickets for a show. Will it actually happen? Who knows..all I know is having some things planned that we can look forward to is an AMAZING feeling.
Creating a bucket list gives me hope and fills me with excitement for the future.
I need that right now.
