I hope most of you are making it through this winter healthy and happy. Almost everyone around me is getting sick so they are not feeling too happy. If you haven’t received your flu shot you may want to consider checking with your doctor about getting one. There are really only so many things you can do to avoid getting sick this time of year but, some of them are; washing your hands ( maybe more often than usual), try not to be up close to others even if they seem perfectly healthy, and try keeping your hands away from your mouth.
Some people think taking vitamin C and eating healthy help ( couldn’t hurt). Even after doing everything recommended you may still end up in bed with one of the many viruses out there. Drink plenty of fluids, get lots of rest and you will be back to normal quickly.
If you live in an area that’s been hard hit by low temps, ice and/or snow make sure to dress in layers, keep porches and pathways free of ice and if you are on the road use extra precaution. A lot of people keep a bucket of sand or kitty litter by their door in case their steps have iced up during the night. Keep an eye on elderly neighbors as they may not be able to keep pathways clear on their own and are more likely to fall. Lend a helping hand if you are able. Even with practicing extra precautions accidents can happen but still do your best to prevent them.
Another good idea is to keep an emergency kit in your car. You may need to change up some items depending on the time of year but it’s always a good idea to be prepared for any emergency that may happen.

Romeos Tip of the Week: try to be a better person each day. You will feel better about yourself, and those around you will feel better about you!
“I have a dream…”, yes I’m sure most of you know who I’m referring to just by reading those few words. Tomorrow is a day dedicated to remembering and honoring the late Martin Luther King Jr. The Nobel Peace Prize awardee was a pastor, activist, humanitarian and a leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He was a peaceful NON-violent man who dreamed of equal rights for ALL humanity.
Romeos Tip of the Week; Take the time you need to adapt to any changes taking place in your life and try not to stress about it.
This has been a hard week for me because my Momma has been out of town. I really miss her. I’m lucky that I have Gram to keep me company and take care of me. I think having me with her has helped her as well.
Sometimes we have to learn to adapt to changes that take place in our life. It can be really hard to do, especially if you have to go through those changes completely on your own. I never have to adapt to changes without my family, I’m fortunate!
Changes take place all the time in our lives. It could be as simple as your loved one taking a short trip without you or sending your little one off to kindergarten or even college or even more serious, a diagnosis of a serious illness or even a death in the family. Change is a part of life and we have to learn to adapt to those changes if we want to be happy.
If you don’t have someone you feel comfortable talking to, then writing in a journal can be very helpful. Sometimes just a little time is all it takes to adapt to changes. Don’t be too hard on yourself if it seems as if you are taking too long to adjust; everyone adapts at their own pace.
My tip this week; take the time you need to adapt to any changes taking place in your life and try not to stress about it.
Romeo, the little black dog!
having to drive in it and shovel it must be very hard, especially for the elderly. Hopefully Mother Nature will calm down a bit soon and we will be able to enjoy the winter weather.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I know I did!
