    That is a good thing you are doing……getting rid of the garbage. Now you can concentrate on a new novel!!! Maybe one about a lady building a garage?????

    Good job, Pat! Honestly, social media is a lie, because it only works for people who already have a big following. I used to like Twitter but it’s mostly useless. The one positive thing it does is help my stats on Reverbnation. That’s really why I keep it around. I really am more peaceful when I stay off social media: I read a couple of blogs and watch a few vlogs on Youtube. It takes mental discipline to reach for something else instead of the “easy” “SM” sites – tired of saying the whole phrase. And, yes, when I’m notified that you liked something I get those s** w sister posts recommended to me and I’m wondering if you really want that – lol!

      Oh, my — I had no idea they were recommending those S** posts. So not the impression I want to give people of my blog!! FB used to help my blog stats — the good thing about getting rid of those S** posts right now is that my stats are going to tank, so any loss from no FB views will be miniscule. I despise the term “social media.” If I have to use it, I say social networking, but even that seems a misnomer.

    You’re being a whole lot more productive than me, Pat. Personally, around here it’s kind of living in the Groundhog Day movie. Every day is the same. Even with Texas opening up on a pretty steady pace starting this week, I’m still not at all comfortable about going outside the house unless there is a real reason for me to do so. I’m in the process of rescheduling a dental appointment and a couple of doctor appointments, moving them back about three months. Maybe I’ll be braver then.

      Despite my feeling that this thing was blown out of proportion and that it wasn’t really worth tanking the economy over, I’m not really comfortable about being out and about either. In my defense, I always try to stay far away from any catchable illness, so I’m not really being contradictory. Some friends are already resuming their weekly get togethers, but I’m staying home.

      And yep, I get that Groundhog Day feeling, too. I worry sometimes that my knee is taking too long to heal, as if I’m missing something, then I realize it doesn’t matter how long it takes. I’m not missing anything. Every day is like every other day, and time isn’t moving on at all.
