Wow! Sue, what great information. Thank you so much…..I purchased a Virmee VT3 Plus fit watch after the response from 2011 panic. It performs the actions I want and is waterproof, but doesn't overdo. I don't need nor want it to answer texts or phone calls or questions w/Alexi…so, hopefully it will do just what I need. If not, I'll go to the FitBit Charge 3! I ck'd it out just now and like it.
Funny thing, I spent some time looking for the right replacement bands!!!!! I'm not thrilled with the rubbery, plastic band, at all plus it will be extremely HOT in our weather. So, saw the rainbow which I love, a couple of nice but also hot leather, didn't find a nice metal one yet which I do want if it doens't make me break out with allergic reaction! NOT going for gold! Let you know….
I really like the HP laptops. Looking at 15" screen, mid-range storage/memory, as I use it more than I thought I would, but don't need top anything. I spent a long time last couple days online re these goodies….also got a new pillow, curved like 'v' shape for side sleeping, will add support for neck and head and back….and got a no-touch thermometer that will take temp of food and liquid – great if i had an infant!-, back pillow for my 2 relcliners to support my poor back! I'm on a roll…..laptop is next.
I bet you're loving that sewing machine! Hundreds of masks to donate? for friends? Good thing and think how much you'll keep on enjoying it! You know, it's so important for us to do good things for ourselves, isn't it. This is a lesson I began learning a few years ago, but it is a lesson well learned this last year.
You have and are helping many of us to be good to ourselves. Remember so many years ago when we were 'taught' by the mind leaders in our world that we must learn to love ourselves? That thought never occurred to us! We were busy loving and thinking of others! While I do know many took that to heart and some may have overdone the concept, it is something I'm acturally putting into practice these days.
And, my friend, that's a good thing. So, the watch, the laptop, the weighted quilt, the pillow……and Mayo Connect friends. Blessings to all. Elizabeth

Elizabeth – When we started mask production last March, it was for the residents of our RV/Mobile home Park in Texas, some of whom worked in the community, others like us who were older and vulnerable – we made over 200 in the first two weeks. Our county was an early adopter, and masks were required in public by April 1st.
When I got home May 1st, my friends, family, the local day care and senior services were in need of masks – so I have made another 400 or so, refining design and fit over time. I even carry extra new ones in my car to hand to people who need them. Now we have worn them so long that I'm beginning to give away replacements. Since I have been mainly in isolation, it is a small way I can contribute…
One of the ways I am being good to myself this year is by giving myself a "day off" each week – when I do exactly as I please, without worrying about chores, errands, exercise, cooking…dinner is either takeout, leftovers or my husband cooks.
