OK, this is not my FIRST blog, I posted 673 blogs already.
However, today I will be starting my NEW Blog…Life After The Stroke. After careful consideration of what I would after the pandemic, I am decided to be a full time blogger, while I can be home and travel for pleasure. The speaking business has had its challenges and most of the speakers are giving the presentations in ZOOM. That works, but not for the people I am trying to reach.
I Start My New Gig…Today!
I hope you will join me in my new venture; I am VERY excited about what the next chapter looks like. You notice I said MY new venture; I am going to try to keep the stress off of Jill. But after I said it, there ARE still some things that I will ask her to do… but don’t tell her.
First, before I start my blog in September, let me give the good news: my two children got engaged, to different people, in August.
We spent time with each of them in the past year, but we didn’t expect this…in the same month; Holy cow!!!! (It has been said I say that often.) Now, there are ALL the things associated with a wedding.
Who Will Be First?
So who is getting married first? As of now (things change hourly),
Tom is expecting a tiny ceremony in December 2020 and he will have 2 “parties” in Oregon and in New Jersey sometime in the future.
Jill did the leg work and found out what it would cost to do at Oswego Hills Winery. (Note: Jill is having frequent conversations with Tom and Bethany so things are for ever changing.) It DOESN’T look like they will be having it there…but things change!
Rachel is planning a ceremony and party on November 6, 2021…so we have a year to plan. I am guessing she is VERY excited about that one. She told us they are looking at Anthem, AZ for a hew home. How exciting!
Where Do I Start?
In September, I will be trying NEW stuff. I will talk about my early days of the stroke and think back on what I learned about myself during the stroke. I will be addressing some serious topics and throw some humor to make it lighter.
While it sounds good, consider this: First, I have to write out what I want to say…and then I have to practice saying it. Easy? I did a two minute video of me talking about why I would not be communicating during our meeting. The video was recorded 6 years ago (nice glasses), so I am a little better now… but the 2 minute video took a month to get it right! Even now, I cringe when I watch it, so that is up in the air.
