Shout out to Dr. Albritton and staff for fixing my broken molar at Albritton & Ardovino Family Dentistry today! Whoever decided dentists aren't essential workers is CRAZY!!

How to Make a Paper Heart Chain

🥰 This how-to-make a paper heart chain article seems appropriate for a time like now, even though it was meant for Valentine's Day. Love and hugs to everyone! 🥰

While practicing cutting out paper hearts for Valentines Day, my eight-year-old daughter and I wondered if it was possible to cut a chain of hearts, so we got started testing it out. It was a good exercise in visualization, as well as trial and error (and patience) for her! Here's how you do it....

Greater Birmingham Humane Society

Have you been following Simon's story on the Greater Birmingham Humane Society page? What an inspiration this poor little guy is! So thankful he was rescued and is now on the mend! GO SIMON!! Visit their page for the latest updates!

This is Simon. We rescued him Saturday from the streets of Fairfield after a citizen posted a video of him limping across an intersection. Our vet team thinks he is only a year old, but his face tells the story of one much older. Simon has demodectic mange and severe heartworms along with a fractured pelvis and leg. The injuries to Simon's pelvis and leg are likely over six-months-old. He is teaching us all about suffering, forgiveness, recovery, redemption, and healing - - a metaphor for what many celebrated this past Easter weekend.

The Greater Birmingham Humane Society staff are committed to Simon's recovery, and we are grateful to you for helping us find him and save him. Simon will receive weekly medicated baths and oral medications. The severity of the mange and other injuries has left Simon's immune system compromised, but we're hopeful that with time, care and your help Simon will make a full recovery! Be on the lookout for more information on Simon and click here to donate http://ow.ly/g38w50zd0dm

What's It Like to Get Tested for COVID-19? My Experience and Info

If you read my note this week, you already know that I got tested for "the virus that shall not be named!" I'm SUPER HAPPY and RELIEVED to report, the test was NEGATIVE! When I heard the news, I burst into tears and hugged everyone in my family for the first time in what felt like forever. I'm still hearing reports that some people are struggling to get themselves or family members tested. Here is my experience, with links to the clinic I went through. I did not have any trouble and got results in 3 days! Please share if you've had difficulty or if you've had luck here to help others navigate. I just realized this morning that I did not even wish you all a Happy Passover or Easter Weekend in my note, b/c quarantine just ate this week! So glad it's over (for the time being) and we can catch our breath.
