  1. Got my vaccine today. So far no side effects. Not even a sore arm
  2. I for one have worked on and off. My nurse manager has been great to work for. I am 68 years old so we are trying to keep me off the adult floors. Especially the covid floors. I have been working my pediatric and neonatal floors. She has allowed me to be on call if our census is low. So far since March we have had only 2 positive kids. One test came back positive but had no symptoms. Was in for something else. The other was in last March and we eventually transferred him to a big medical center. We eventually heard he did well and was discharged. I enjoy working but will not take chances. I
  3. Well, I am not ready to give up my passion of cycling and skiing. One by one my bike tours are being cancelled this summer. Plus my skiing came to abrupt stop in March. I am going to be 68 soon and know I do not have that many years left to be able to do both. It is like I am losing my time to do things I enjoy. Part of these activity are social. My DH and I have been going out on our own when the weather has been nice but it is not the same as riding with friends. I do not want to pick a new passion. I am a very active person and these have been taken away from me plus my gym I was goi
  4. Missed this in Raleigh and also missed Grease with timing with a bike trip. Looks like those dates may work this time. Something to think about.
  5. I have been to the grocery store a couple of times but normally do not go into places. Been out walking everyday and occasionally biking. Do not wear a mask when walking or biking but do stay at least 6 ft away. We gave up riding the bike trails because they are to busy with walkers. Hard to social distance when they will not move to the grass. We tried moving over to the grass with the bike and almost buried it into soft grass and mud. I have been off work all of April and will return on May 8th. Will have to be refitted for N95. I have one in my locker that I was fitted along time ag
  6. I am on a 14 day self quarantine before I can go back to work. I was out skiing in Colorado when they closed the ski hills and I drove back. I was not scheduled to work till the 30th of this month. Because I was out in a area that had cases they made be quarantined. I have not been out to any place since they told me but I have gone out for a walk with no interacting with people. I have talked to my nurse manager and we agreed that I will not take any patients with the virus because of my age. So far we have not had a case at my hospital. Started my spring cleaning early. Finishin
  7. Where were you at in Michigan? We are camping in Nothern Michigan now for 12 days.
  8. I also will be camping and bike riding for the next 12 days. Limited access also. Some internet and poor cell service. Miss Clay. Maybe he will come alive.
  9. What kind of trouble can we get in. Clay where are you?
  10. Thank you for the pictures. Did not go to the Founders Brunch so did not see what he was wearing. Looking good in those pictures. I had so much fun this weekend seeing everyone. We did not stay at the Omni but it worked out we were there a lot. Our hotel was about 4 blocks away and had free shuttle in the city center so we took it many times. I walked back and forth a few extra times to get some steps in. The concert was great. He sounded wonderful and I even got to hear some early songs that I never saw live since I did not start going to concert to Christmas 2004. TITN and I
  11. Willing to send money. Tried to send message and it would not go.
  12. Back in 2009 my DH was in the same position. He had worked for the company for 38 years at the time. His job moved to Mexico. He was 58 at the time. I ended up picking up enough hours to get us by. Within months that same company filed for bankruptcy and turned the pension over to the government which took 60% out of the pension and then took away our health care. My DH decided to go back to school and get a second master degree.(because of the way his job went it was paid for by the government). He finished that and then in 2012 the parent company of the one he was let go of was looking
