The RNAO (Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario) is launching a #TogetherWeCanDoIt campaign.👏 NOW, more than ever -- we MUST inject positive energy to lift up the front-lines workers, as well as keep all of us going with long hours and long worries! This is why, beginning Thursday, March 19, 2020 at 7:30 p.m. (EDT) and every evening thereafter – we ask you to cheer on the millions of health providers, social service and other essential front-line workers in Ontario, Canada, and around the world tackling #COVID-19. Step out onto your porch, balcony or open a window and make some noise in honour of our heroes who are working on our behalf. You can bang some pots and pans, you can sing a song🎤🥁, you can applaud👏, and yes – you can honk. 🎼🚗🚕
Remember 7:30 p.m. (EDT) sharp, everyday, until the fight against COVID-19 is over!
GET READY TO PARTICIPATE. Use the hashtags #TogetherWeCanDoIt 👏 #Cheer4HealthWorkers and tag @RNAO when sharing or Tweeting how you and your community are cheering on our front-line providers!
I went to see Crash Test Dummies in January! This time, I went by self. Nothing like sitting enjoying the music!
To continue the concerts from 2019, my daughter and I went to see 54-40 on January 10. It was great.
Plus it is always great to hang out with my daughter.
Christmas of 2019 was quiet, except for our trip to the Casino to celebrate my daughter's 25th birthday. No, I didn't win any money!
I am looking forward to a great 2020.
My daughter and I had a fun time in Toronto on Oct 28. We went to see Peter Hook and the Light ! It was great!
My new American friend “LeeAnne” has written a heart-felt, sincere, articulate, personal post on the topic of Anxiety.
I've decided I'm done being quiet and polite about a number of things. I'm tired of depending on people who are clueless of the reality and gravity of my situation and others like me, to advocate for me. How can they? I often speak up and speak out on closed forums and offer support, advice, and information, when I have it to give. And I am often thanked and told that this is my missed calling. Or teaching. Maybe. I don't know. But I have had life and career experiences that have taught me things that I know can help others.
I do enjoy helping when I can, and I've always been a fight for the underdog kind of gal. I was always a strong patient advocate as a nurse. I was mostly able to do so in a diplomatic manner and have an excellent rapport with many providers and fellow nurses. Many former patients or family members have asked to be friends since I've become disabled. But I also wasn't afraid to pitch a feet stomping hissy-fit or go over someone's head or several heads for a patient's best interest when necessary. I may be on a *hit list or two as a result, and well, that is what it is.
On August 18, my cousin, my daughter and myself went to see P!nk in Toronto.
It was a GREAT concert.
This was originally scheduled for May but was postponed because of a throat infection. It was well worth the wait.
It was awesome.
Thank you P!nk for a wonderful show!!
