Today started with a jaunt into Omaha for my first COVID-19 vaccination. I am glad to have the first one over with, and I go for the second one on March 30, 2021. Somehow, the THINK Whole Person Healthcare was able to secure the Moderna version of the vaccine, so here we are. One down, one to go.
This Women in Publishing Conference I’m watching all week has a LOT of vital information for me. I’ve had problems getting tuned in at the times of live presentations, but can re-watch them later. I am fortunate there are several categories I’m interested in; Children’s Books, and Fiction. There is also a General Business category which should be good, too.
The remodeling at the VFW is really going great guns! We’re ready to have the artwork hung. It will add a lot to the character of the rooms, and I’m sure they will be more appealing for rentals with the updates. They will then go on to the next rental room, the one that is smaller and more informal. What a great project to finish before summer. (I hope). Then I’ll see more of the Babe.
March 2, 1996 was a very important day for the Babe and me. It’s the first time we met. Wow, I cannot believe after being single for 16 years, I met someone who could be all I wanted. It seemed easy after all the heart-breaks I had. Him, too. I think we both had to experience the good and bad of life to really appreciate each other and our position in life. We have come such a long way, personally and professionally. We are grateful to God for each other, and the successes we’ve had.
We’ve also had our share of heartaches along the way. And scary health issues. His ischemic heart disease and eventual quad-bypass; my breast cancer and twisted, compressing spine. We’ve overcome a lot, and we’re grateful for that, too. It’s all bonus time now. Living life to the fullest and loving each other. This includes encouraging each other. I cannot wait to sit on the deck again and drink coffee with the Babe. Those times in quarantine last summer were some of our best. We plan on repeating that daily, if possible.
Gotta run. A live event is about to start on Women in Publishing. Thanks for reading today, and I will see you tomorrow! Be Safe. Be Careful.
