Thank you for joining me to say good by, and good riddance, to 2020. Although as bad as it was, I hope we all learned something from the roller coaster ride that year was. And we’re not out of the amusement park yet, but at least we’re seeing the exit sign ahead.
To start the year, I thought I would suggest you review or read for the first time some previous posts that address something “new”, especially since I have so many new followers, which I appreciate immensely.
Who will be your next doctor? What will your future doctor look like? Your doctor within the next 10-20 years is likely in medical school or a residency program in a United States medical center right now.

With people living such long lives now, most of us will spend a large portion of it as grandparents, even great-grandparents. But today’s grandmothers aren’t just sitting in rocking chairs knitting.
Modern grandmothers do everything. They run businesses and run for office.
There are grandmothers in Congress and on the Supreme Court.
Grandmothers run marathons, teach yoga, and compete in ballroom dancing (like me).
Some retire from long successful careers and some start new careers.
And some grandmothers write blogs.
These grandmothers’ blogs cover a variety of subjects
home,marriage, family, travel, cooking, fitness, retirement, faith, genealogy, crafts, gardening, books, health, DIY, and of course grandchildren.
2019 New Year’s Resolutions
Several of the other grandmother bloggers I know shared their new year’s resolutions online. Here is what I wrote-
I’m a stickler for definitions so I checked to see what “resolution” means. It is a “firm determination to do something” or the “act of solving a problem.”
So I don’t do New Year’s resolutions because I think we should be doing resolutions all the time; if we think of it as just a once a year process, we miss multiple opportunities to accomplish new things or solve problems.
So, I do resolve to continue learning new things and improving my skills. In 2019 I will be required to recertify as a family physician, so I have a “firm determination” to pass the exam.
I also want to improve my ballroom dancing skills, learn new steps and routines.
I want to update old blog posts with newer information and address important medical topics that I haven’t tackled before.
I want to spend quality time with my friends and family, nurture my faith and find new ways to give back to my community.
