I am doing well! Last week, my boss gave me a very favorable annual review. :) I have been applying the 2 ointments the dermatologist recommended to the red marks on my nose bridge, and the redness is fading!!! :D I am also continuing to do my physical therapy exercises daily, and I can finally say with confidence that my shoulder numbness is getting better!!! :D

I still haven't paid to join an online dating site. I'm wondering if dating during COVID is even recommended.

Since I have lost some weight, I am now a size 14 instead of 16!! I have been buying cute clothes that fit me better, which has boosted my confidence! :) I get all my clothes from JCPenney (I love JCPenney!). That said, the last time I was there, I noticed that my cashier didn't have fingers! She was able to ring me up, but with great difficulty, and I felt so sad for her. :( I realized at that moment just how much I have taken things for granted! I thank God for his blessings.

This weekend, I have been having fun watching stuff online with my roommate. :) We watched "I Feel Pretty" yesterday, and it had just the kind of message I needed to hear! Ladies, be confident, and love yourselves! We also watched the first episode of "Julie and the Phantoms". I wasn't in love with the show, but I'm obsessed with the song "Wake Up"! I have the soundtrack on my Amazon Music Unlimited. Check it out!

Tomorrow marks the first month since I moved out. I calculated that I spent around $300 for groceries for this first month, and I'm pleased, because I'm a beginner cook (I buy a lot of premade foods), and I still have a lot of uneaten food.

I'm so happy that I have some distance from my parents!

Good news with my hair!! My hair turned out perfect (not too thin, and not too thick)!!! :D

    Tinder hookups are definitely not a good idea... But dating apps like Hinge have voice/video calling built in and there's nothing wrong with that! It's nice to even chat with someone, especially if you don't see many people right now!

    Yeah, I wouldn't even think about dating until the virus is GONE for good.

    I don't care for musicals, but I suddenly remembered this song called "Everything's Coming Up Roses" which I guess is from a musical called "Gypsy". "Everything's coming up roses and daffodils!/
    Everything's coming up sunshine and Santa Claus!/Everything's gonna be bright lights and lollipops!"
    A little over the top for every day maybe, but I am glad to see you are enjoying your life.

    Congrats on your progress!

    I bought my first bullet/blender at Penney.
