Walking Again

I used to walk all the time even to work when I lived in Thunder Bay.  I have slowly stopped .  It's been hard to walk 3 dogs together so I stopped doing that as often as I used to.  When I had only one dog I walked him twice a day.
Anyway, I have started again.  I am so out of shape it's pathetic!  My hip hurts, my knee hurts, and my shins and ankles hurt! yikes!  I have been going every second day and walking for about 20 minutes.  It's not much but it's a start.  I go after work before going home and on the weekends I walk each day with a different dog.  Lets hope I get back into shape soon!

Hanging In

Still hanging in during the lockdown of non essential services.  Brad and I are still working thank God so we count ourselves among the lucky ones.  So many are out of jobs it's just scary.
We are starting Phases May 14 to re open Alberta.  Time will tell if this was too soon I guess.
The dogs are doing great and are enjoying my shortened hours.  Starting Monday I will be back to my regular hours of 7-3. I am not looking forward to that.  It was so nice to be home early on most days.
All dog shows are still cancelled, for the summer anyway.  I am hoping our November Show will be on as it will be the first time I can show Lync in Veterans! I cant believe he will be 7 in August!  Kort will be 12 in 3 days.  I will do a special post just for him on that day.
That's about all the updates I have for now!

A New Reality

How is everyone coping with the new world we are now living in?

I am still working .  I am a dog groomer.  We are taking precautions, lots of hand washing, disinfecting door handles, debit machine and anything else the public comes in contact with.  I have mixed feelings. I would rather stay home but can't afford to not get a paycheck. My husband is also still working and we are thankful for our jobs.  The only time we go out is if we need groceries . So many people in our community are not practicing self isolation.  The other day I went out for milk and there was a dad in the store with his 2 public school aged kids.  Crazy.  I've seen Facebook posts of people still travelling to tourist attractions.  They are treating this like a holiday instead of a pandemic. What don't they understand about all of this?  It's all just so scary.

I hope you are all safe and will continue to stay so.

Christmas Eve

Sitting here trying to find the motivation to make my stuffing.  I like so many people my age just go through the motions at Christmas time. The older you get the more family you loose.
This year I am trying hard to stay in the present and not dwell on the past.  I just miss my family so much.  I have a brother in Thunder Bay and a sister in Sherwood Park.  My sister is just a 5 hour drive away but she has her own family.
I am reminded how fortunate I am to have my husband, my health and my dogs.  So many losses this year for people. One of my co workers died 3 days ago after a short illness.  I feel for her family.  My good friend lost her husband recently and I'm sad for her this Christmas. Another friends life was lost tragically recently as well. How sad for her family .
So hug your loved ones tightly, never miss an opportunity to tell them how much you love them.  Life is short so make the best of it.
