Hi Everybody,

I just wanted to check in to say hello. COVID is rocking Tioga and Chemung Counties....one is where I live and the other is where I work. I swing between, I'm ok....I'm following masking, social distancing and handwashing guidelines, I use hand sanitizer and have been known to double mask up when I see clients at work. Thankfully, the majority of my work can be done remotely.....but then I swing the other way. I think it's probably pretty normal....but I hate that feeling.

I am well. Jeremiah is well and doing school 100% remotely. It has proved to be a parenting challenge in regards the day to day care but again, thankfully my employer is very flexible. He can come to work with me sometimes and other days I can work at home while he does his schooling.

Pete begins a new job soon as his job, which was a grant funded position that was renewed annually, came to an end. We are most thankful that he found a position that sounds very promising. This will change our schedule yet again but we are flexible and doing things the best we can.

I haven't done much decluttering......just bits here and there. I have changed the way we eat as Pete and I are doing KETO and have been doing so since July. He is down 25 pounds and I'm down 18....it's slow going for me but it's better than going the other way. I recently had blood work completed and while the weight loss isn't going nearly as fast as I would like, my blood chemistry...including my A1C is all in range! My triglycerides, LDL and HDL are all in range for the first time in just about FOREVER. Even my thyroid is happy! So....the weight loss will come but the other is just stellar news!

I hope you are all well and would like to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Love to All,

Michelle
