Michele's Moments

I still have SO much more to learn.  When I sent out that first E-Newsletter, I was not prepared for the response.  So many of you were very grateful which tells me this is the correct thing to be doing.  BUT --- as an attachment, it was too small for some people to read.  "Links" and using them was all new for some people.  Lifelong learning has taken on a whole new meaning for me...I have a lot to learn.  Hopefully, this format will address some of those concerns.

The snow is helping me stay confined, but that too shall pass.  I have also learned  this week how to do my own nails.  Yes, it has been 28+ years I have gotten my nails done...by someone else.  Now, during this COVID-19 challenge, I have gotten files        and polish and am learning, once again, to do my own nails.  Needless    to say, they are not as long, not as strong and not as pretty as the     previous  version but, for now, it's just gonna have to do!  (My children   have never seen me without them!)  

Stimulus checks are getting out.  I know some people have already received them.   If you want to check the status of your check, the IRS website link is below.  If you want to see the video everyone is talking about, done by the Minnesota Twins, click here.  If you just need a good ole' belly laugh go back and click on the BE HAPPY picture above!

Please enjoy your weekend.  Stay home, stay safe, stay well and stay connected.
