I am an "older" woman with breast cancer (I was diagnosed at 65 and am now 66).  I notice that most of the posts seem to be from people younger than I am (often by quite a bit...).   I'd love to "talk" with others my age, exchange info about their diagnoses, effects on their lives, etc.   I see that there is a forum for young women.

Someone suggested that maybe it's that older people aren't so computer-savvy or aren't used to being in online discussion groups.   However, for those who are, it would be great.

What a wonderful way to start the new year, Cindy. I talked to a cousin and she expected her great grandson to arrive shortly before the stroke of midnight. Haven't seen any Facebook posts so don't know any details.

Just spent my first full day without my walking boot. Ankle feels pretty good. My goal is to get back to golf on Thursday - 3 weeks after my fall. In the meantime, I'm enough of a political junkie that I will be glued to the tube. Will be glad to get back to golf - not just for the exercise and laughs but I realized that I was having trouble keeping the days straight because I didn't have my regular game to look forward to. Oh Covid - go away!

Cindy, mazel tov on the new grandson! As to the jeans, Old Navy has huge online sales going on--and again, there's always the possibility of making them capris or cutoffs--or pulling your boots on over them.

It's cold here, with ice fog. Bob called Little Co. to schedule his second shot, and they told him to call again Wed. when they expect the new shipment. (So they did not reserve enough Pfizer for followup shots). He's hoping he can get it Friday--they're not vaccinating over the weekend, Meanwhile, many vaccination centers are toying with the idea of either mixing vaccine schedules (first Pfizer, then Moderna) or even just giving only one shot apiece to Group 1a (healthcare workers, first responders and nursing home residents & staff) and then moving on to 1b (other essential workers and non-congregate >75ers). We in Group 1c (65-74 or high-risk comorbidities) will likely have to wait till April or May.

Meanwhile, hanging at home. On the fence about getting my mani Thurs.--but aren't I always? Meanwhile my pharmacy ran out of letrozole (they promise to personally deliver it to me when it comes in); but I have a small stash remaining of my NovartisUK Femara. It "expired" April 2019, but unlike antibiotics or aspirin, it's likely still good.

Cindy, I agree, a great way to start a new year. Heard today from a friend that her son's wife delivered a boy on December 29 (great tax deduction) and her daughter delivered a girl today(oops, missed the tax deduction!). All, including the grandparents, all doing well.

We are waiting for great grandchildren but don't see any on the near horizon. GD1 is 22, single, and not dating anyone regularly; GD2 is 21 and a senior in college, she does have a "boyfriend" ; next in age is GS1 who is in college and has been dating the same woman for 2 years.

Pretty cool in the morning, but we had sun almost all day with no wind. So, not a bad day at all. Got # 4 down and only 4 to go now. Happy about that. I do hate having no coffee though. That is difficult. Worth it in the end.

Didn't do much of anything today. Since I get a late start, it is difficult to feel like doing much. By the time I have us fed after chemo and the kitchen neatened up again it is about the time I normally start winding down. I do cheat though and do most of the work before I leave for the clinic -- so I really don't have much to keep up with -- just would be nice to make some headway on some of the things that have had to wait while I worked. My one little job will likely be ending after nest week -- so I will have a whole different schedule or maybe I should say -- back to the old one when I was not working anywhere. That will be okay.

I hope you all had a really nice day.

Going to be gray here today. Not to my liking -- but matching the mood of yesterday which was not a good day at all. Thinking of you all and hoping we soon can see good things happening with the covid crisis. We do not talk politics here, but I will be glad to see Jan 20th. come so we can get started on something better that will help all of us.

I have no plans for the day -- just needing the usual errands done. Seems I'm always out of cat food and it not that, dog food. So, it will be a normal day here of trying to catch up on things that get lost in the shuffle some times -- like not checking the 'feed bin ' often enough.

Hope you all have a good day.

Jackie, glad that you're halfway there in your chemo regimen.

I spent yesterday glued to the tv. I started off watching the House and the Senate on CSpan. Then the scenes of a mob invading the Capitol. An incredible awful day. But not all that surprising. Words do matter especially when spoken by powerful politicians.

Earlier in the day, a representative from a company hired by Lowe's came and measured our counter tops, which had been cleared according to instructions. I am finally following DH's wishes and having new counter tops installed. This technician did not use a ruler to measure but used a laser measuring machine. When the company comes to install the new counter tops, they remove the old and install the new all in one day.

I picked out a white quartz which should brighten up the kitchen.

It's a gloomy day outside and will be getting colder.

I started to write about the attack on the capital and realized there are no words that encompass my feelings. Disgust. If my tv could hear me yelling at it, if others could see me standing up yelling at it, I'd probably get locked up.

We've had sun, seems like it's beautiful out, until you go out. It's so cold! I ran to CVS yesterday when remote learning had an hour lull. Not sure what I was thinking, must have been preoccupied, I didn't zip my coat and out the door I went. But "they say" it's been warmer than normal.

I moved out our dates for mail forwarding from FL to NY to April 5th. And extended the cable tv date to 4/15. So I better get with the program of ice cold weather, I'll be here for dang near all of it.

Plumber here again this morning. Hahaha...have to laugh, or pull my hair out. Owner thinks the best thing to do now is have his employee snake the main drain out to the trap, and if nothing there, snake from the trap out to the road. Couldn't get a guy here until Monday 7:45 AM.

I took all my Christmas decorations down on 1/6, tree too. Now my house is dark, nothing sparkling. I told my grand niece we'll decorate for Valentine's day early. I think in FL I have a light up heart, I'll need to get one up here. We need something to look forward to!

Illinoislady congrats having your chemo treatments half way done!

I hope you all have a great weekend.

I have been wearing my mask when I go help the ladies I help -- and while this is a possible visit to a friend -- I will wear it as well.

petite, I'm sorry to hear your hands are not doing well. I hope it clears up for you soon.

Cindy, your heart sounds great. I had no idea you could get anything like that. Then again, the lady I help at her farm had a picture that she uses at X-mas time that has stars in the sky as well as a decorated X-mas tree and the tree lights up -- changing to several different colors at intervals. She enjoys using it through the holidays. I'm not much of a shopper so don't seem to run into those things. I've never been much of a shopper I guess, but never realized it.

Today is the funeral visitation and service for our neighbor who died over at his house a week ago. DH was planning for us to go. I woke up this morning with the realization that I was not going to attend and did not think it was wise for him to attend either. I think it's foolish to go among a group of people with the present surge in Covid cases. The positivity in testing in our parish/county is between 17 and 18 percent.

I tried to visualize the awkwardness of expressing sympathy while keeping social distance. I texted a former neighbor, in her 60's, who is going and asked her to express our regrets in not being able to attend. I will also send a card expressing sympathy.

We have put ourselves on the waiting list at two pharmacies that will be receiving Covid vaccine.

On a happier note, dh's nephew and his wife in IL gave us a nice present, some meal kits from Hello Fresh. That will be interesting. DH picked out the three meals.

Happy Saturday to all.

I celebrated the Senate wins Tues. night with champagne and salmon roe. Then all day Wed. & Thurs., comfort food was necessary (whenever I did, however briefly, have an appetite). Still had my carb-debauch (pasta for dinner, a bran matzo with melted provolone snack, and chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate) yesterday. Getting perilously close to my pre-pandemic weight (I'd lost, rather than gained, a "quarantine 15" during the first lockdown but the weight on the scale's balance keeps getting shifted to the right), so I'd better get my act together: weigh-in (albeit by telehealth) in only 3 wks.

Bob got shot #2 yesterday. He woke up with slight achiness, but is better now. He is dismayed how many of his hospitals' nurses are refusing the vaccine, especially since the hospitals are holding the vials in reserve for their healthcare staff but surrounding minority-group neighborhoods are hard-hit with seniors & essential workers who've yet to even been offered a first shot.

Meanwhile, there was outrage on Wed. when the city of Chicago announced it would stick with the Federal 75+ minimum age guideline for Group 1B rather than follow the state's lowering it to 65. But when it was pointed out that lowering the age was due to the fact that the average age for COVID deaths in Blacks is 72 and Hispanics is 68, and that the vast majority of these senior POC (especially those working essential jobs, taking public transit & living in close quarters) live in Chicago, the city quickly reversed its decision. But seeing as how they're still doing Group 1A (healthcare workers, first-responders, congregate-care residents) we in Group 1B won't see a needle (barring a miracle) till at least early March.

My DH worries every time I fall. I have fell yesterday on a slick snow covered ice spot and I think I fell last week. I also fell in November when hiking. He worries that my luck will run out as I'm thin and have osteoporosis. Due for my DEXA scan in the fall. Over the past few years, I've taken some big falls, a couple banging my back of head - basically tripping over my own 2 feet! Petite, glad that you are okay. Carole - glad you were able to schedule the vaccines. It is very hard to do it on the computer websites. If you aren't fast enough, you loose your spot - as my DH said, like trying to buy concert tickets!!

We started the morning at 42. Now it's 39, but still COLD rain, so no way I can cover that large plant. I agree - I'm not going anywhere.

OOOOhhhh--- I just can't resist it~~~ EVERY TOMATO PLANT HAS TO DIE SOMETIME.

In other news, it is 21 deg here. we may get up to 38 on Wednesday. Then three days snow is predicted, only a dusting, about four inches. I guess winter has begun. A trifle late. I have been knitting, cutting blocks for a quilt, and taking the dog for walks. I guess he needs his nightly brushing-- he has been shaking his tags at me.

Looks like they want to look at my chest-- see if there are any "calcifications". What stupid euphemisms!! I know what that word means.
