Perhaps the worst (and strangest) year in my lifetime – and maybe yours too is finally over! Thank God that most of us made it through.
It was mainly the China virus (er Covid-19) and the health issues and restrictions surrounding that which made our world extremely different – and difficult, if uncomfortable. Thank goodness that 2020 is finally over!
I’m going to keep this mostly positive, but it looks like we’re going to have a Covid-2021 to deal with as well. They found the first cases of the variant in the US this week – including one here in San Diego.
The good news is that at least so far, the virus does not have a really high death rate – although A LOT of people have got it. A lot of people have died with it too – but most of those were from “complications due to the coronavirus. Another piece of good news (maybe) is that many people who have been chalked up to the CCP Virus, actually died of something else. The numbers have definitely been ‘enhanced’ to have an affect on the election is my guess. But say that online this year and you will definitely be censored – I’ve been kicked of Facebook, Instagram and had every single one of my Twitter accounts (permanently) suspended.
Since I have been unemployed and under funded since March, I have had a lot of time on my hands. I have not got a lot done. I started off ok – doing A LOT more training to become a Salesforce Administrator and that went great – until I failed, not one, but two certification exams – and I lost my stream.
The one good thing – or 5 good things that happened in 2020 was that I was able to have surgeries to help me recover from injuries suffered in a car accident in 2018. Initially, I was “only” going to have three operations – knee, should and neck. That would have been A LOT easier, but it turned out that the knee and neck surgeries were not successful and needed to be repeated. Going through each of these was no easy feat in my late 50s. Each recovery was fairly difficult, but the neck surgery was far and away the most extreme.
My last surgery was knee surgery, just about two weeks ago, so I am very much still rehabbing it – and cannot yet go for any long walks or runs. The surgery before that was the 2nd should surgery in November and I’m lifting weights and stretching to help my body recover from that.
I’m really looking forward to 2021 – I know it is going to be a much better year. We need to get the Presidential election solved and then deal with the lockdowns and keep people healthy. And then on to so much more fun!
BTW – Happy New Year!
