I am Liberal in my outlook. I am a DIYer, reader, crafter, gardener, traveler. I always have projects, but take time loved ones and friends.
I have made changes routine and diet, I'm toning up and slimming down, it is very exciting.
I am a Cat Mom. I like dogs, and hope to have one again one day. Cats are my fur kids.
I hope I am always kind (heavy traffic doesn't count... well, shouldn't) I have a good sense of humor and sense of what matters. I am very protective of those I care .
I have lived all over the US and overseas as well, 23 moves in my life. After all those moves I ended up 50 miles from where I was born, I've lived in Omaha 15 years.
I am not interested in long distance.
I eat a mostly plant based diet but not militant about it or perfect.

I hope I never "need" to wear them for very long, but now if necessary I have one for me. I plan to make several more, just in case any of my other kids or friends asks for some masks.

HippieChick58 comments on Apr 4, 2020:
I don't "hate" religion, I hate what it does to people. Essentially it comes down to because I don't believe like you do, you are going to use your authority to prevent me from having the same freedoms you do. For example: Your religion says I can't wear pants, so you want to cover myself from head to toe. I hate that people who haven't read the damn book are trying to persuade me that the book says. Yes, I've read that damn book 3 times. I hate that the religious pick and choose what they want to enforce of what they think their book says. Walk away from it? How is that possible when the most godless man in the world is sucking up to the religious and making laws based on what they tell him that disastrously affect my life and the lives of children, women, and disadvantaged individuals. I am for whatever gives a person peace, but keep your beliefs out of my government and out of my life.

HippieChick58 comments on Apr 3, 2020:
Here is a story to illustrate the necessity of gathering together, EVERY pastor knows this story. A member of a certain church, who previously had been attending services regularly, stopped going. After a few weeks, the pastor decided to visit him. It was a chilly evening. The pastor found the man at home alone, sitting before a blazing fire. Guessing the reason for his pastor's visit, the man welcomed him, led him to a big chair near the fireplace and waited. The pastor made himself comfortable but said nothing. In the grave silence, he contemplated the play of the flames around the burning logs. After some minutes, the pastor took the fire tongs, carefully picked up a brightly burning ember and placed it to one side of the hearth all alone. Then he sat back in his chair, still silent. The host watched all this in quiet fascination. As the one lone ember's flame diminished, there was a momentary glow and then its fire was no more. Soon it was cold and "dead as a doornail." Not a word had been spoken since the initial greeting. Just before the pastor was ready to leave, he picked up the cold, dead ember and placed it back in the middle of the fire. Immediately it began to glow once more with the light and warmth of the burning coals around it. As the pastor reached the door to leave, his host said, "Thank you so much for your visit and especially for the fiery sermon. I shall be back in church next Sunday." This is the same reason the military holds frequent "formations." and frequent sales meetings. It pumps you up and gets you charged up, and creates "esprit de corps". It is F--king brainwashing.

HippieChick58 comments on Mar 29, 2020:
And that comes with the word Apoplexy. From Miriam Wester: Apoplexy Apoplexy is a now-dated term for what we now call a stroke, or the bleeding of an organ from hemorrhage. Both types of ailments were usually accompanied by a sudden loss of consciousness, as though the person was knocked out cold. So it makes sense that apoplexy derives from the Greek apoplēssein, from apo- ("completely") and plēssein ("to strike").

My ex makes me look like a social butterfly. After the divorce he has never dated. Each of the kids lived with him for a brief spell, and usually decamped in a rush. When you hit your limit with him, it is a brick wall. The company he worked for forced everyone over 60ish into retirement a few years ago so he is now home all the time. The youngest moved in with him with her husband and baby when baby was tiny so early 2017. Then her husbands mom hit a bad spot and she moved in as well. They moved out just before Christmas 2019, the youngest and her dad had words early one morning and she had her limit. He's alone with his xian website in a 3500 sq ft house with 5 bedrooms. He quit going to church when the Covid rumors started. Our middle daughter who has no kids is delivering his groceries etc. She is doing that for me as well.

Gotta keep the money flowing. And with HIPAA privacy, I am not sure how much we can do at home. I work the customer service side, answering calls of people with questions about the billing. Depends on the stock market recovery, whether or not we get M4A, and whether or not I survive Corona. I am 62, in fair health. I regard my office mates as elements of a germ cesspool that I must survive. No stress at all.

What it’s like being a New York ER doctor during this pandemic - The Washington Post
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 24, 2020:
By Craig Spencer March 24, 2020 at 12:27 p.m. CDT Craig Spencer is director of global health in emergency medicine at New York Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center. NEW YORK — Wake up at 6:30 a.m. Priority is making a big pot of coffee for the whole day, because the place by the hospital is closed. The Starbucks, too. It’s all closed. On the walk, it feels like Sunday. No one is out. Might be the freezing rain. Or it’s early. Regardless, that’s good. Walk in for your 8 a.m. shift: Struck by how the calm of the early morning city streets is immediately transformed. The bright fluorescent lights of the ER reflect off everyone’s protective goggles. There is a cacophony of coughing. You stop. Mask up. Walk in. You take sign-out from the previous team, but nearly every patient is the same, young and old: cough, shortness of breath, fever. The staff is really worried about one patient. Very short of breath, on the maximum amount of oxygen we can give, but still breathing fast. You immediately assess this patient. It’s clear what this is and what needs to happen. You have a long and honest discussion with the patient, and with her family over the phone. It’s best to put her on life support now, before things get much worse. You’re getting set up for that when you’re notified of another really sick patient coming in. You rush over. He’s also extremely sick, vomiting. He needs to be put on life support as well. You bring them back. Two patients, in rooms right next to each other, both getting a breathing tube. It's not even 10 a.m. For the rest of your 12-hour shift, nearly every hour, you get paged: Stat notification: Very sick patient, short of breath, fever. Oxygen 88 percent. Stat notification: Low blood pressure, short of breath, low oxygen. Stat notification: Low oxygen, can’t breathe. Fever. All day ...

The restaurant across the street is closed. Right, everything is closed. But thankfully the hospital cafeteria is open. You grab something, wash your hands (twice), cautiously take off your mask and eat as fast as you can. Go back. Mask up. Walk in. Nearly everyone you see today is the same. We assume everyone is infected. We wear gowns, goggles and masks at every encounter. All day. It’s the only way to be safe. Where did all the heart attacks and appendicitis patients go? It’s all covid-19. When your shift ends, you sign out to the oncoming team. It’s all covid-19....
