We're overcoming decades of marital dysfunction including abuse, passive aggression, gas-lighting & infidelity (both of us).

What an initially terrifying but eventually courageous story, Mark.

Glad to learn you're persevering, and were able to post here.

Welcome back, Mark. Sorry about the infection. Hope it is really under control now.

Finding an ethical way to deal with pain, fear, disappointment etc..is part of the experience of becoming a stronger person...one who is driven by compassion instead of compulsion...ie I have a legitimate reason to be stressed out right now...however, my response to it will determine how others percieve me, and myself.

So...

My new granddaughter was born the end of April 2020. Because the lock-down was just ramping up, we only saw her in person twice in the first year of her life. Seemed they were in quarantine most of the time. Either our son or DIL were exposed at work or one of the kids was exposed at daycare. They were tested about ten times, always negative.

The nursing home/rehab center where I spent the winter of 2018/19 was one of the hardest hit facilities in the state. 3 dozen dead and a couple hundred cases. 3 of the fatalities were staff.

Our church quickly developed an online service and it was midsummer when we began meeting outside. In the fall we switched to indoor service with numerous efforts designed to keep everyone healthy. Some people were angry because we were being too restrictive, others because we were not restrictive enough. In early October our small group began meeting in person.

My wife and I took a college level class together (4 books and a study guide) that shifted from in person to online when the instructor tested positive for COVID 19. She and I both tested positive in November...3 days of hell, a week of "blah" and about 3 weeks of not being able to taste our food. We finished our class in person.

In the mean time, our church has been searching for a new pastor. Our current pastor is moving on after 17 years. I have been part of that effort and we have a new pastor coming the first week of July.

We needed someone to head up the Sunday school so I'm back to doing that. One of the kids said one day "You were my Mom's Sunday school teacher."

I preach at our church about once every three months.

I lead a second small group one night per week.

My wife and I have taken up a new hobby together.

I am completely off all meds and lost the 35 pounds I gained on prednisone.

I mow two lawns every week (mine and the neighbor's)

I we remodeled our bedroom and got new bedroom furniture.

We redid the living room and replaced the furniture in it too.

We got to spend our granddaughter's birthday with her and our grandson.

Our granddaughter who was born about the time I first registered at MB is now 16...

I'll be glad when the pandemic is over. It's been a busy year.

I think I need a vacation.

Thanks for the newsy update, Mark.

It's hard to believe that it's been that long since you registered for MB. It was January (MLK Weekend) in 2007 that Lifechoice and I both registered around the same time.

It's been nearly 15 years since we needed MB. Even that is hard to believe.

DH was in and out of hospitals the same winter you spent in that Nursing Home. Glad those days are over....he's back to pitching on his new team. He's now on the Varsity since he turned 70! (The 65s are the JV and the 60s are the Frosh team.)

Hope all continues to go well. Enjoy your Vacation. Which reminds me, did you or I start the Vacation Thread on MB?
