Happy Friday! I hope you all have had a great week! Boy, do I wish I were ready to celebrate the weekend by going out to dinner, but I am not prepared to venture out yet and do it. I read this blog post, and it made me rethink about going to sit in a restaurant right now. We have a screened-in porch, and we have friends coming over for dinner tonight. We can sit on the porch and practice social distancing that way, but to be honest, I’m pretty confident that they don’t have the virus. The numbers in Dallas have been high this last week (more testing), but I’ve seen the percentage of cases in our area, and it’s really low. Anyway, I’m tired of wearing workout clothes, so I decided to pull out the most gorgeous sequin jacket and wear it tonight.

Can we talk about this gorgeous sequin jacket? I went crazy nuts over her when I walked into the Veronica Beard store the day before all hell broke loose. So I tried her on and knew she could be worn all Spring and Summer. I look at her every time I walk into my closet and decided, what the hay, she’s coming out to play. Do you not love the swing back? I envisioned the jacket worn with a graphic tee (like I am wearing) but also with a beautiful silk camisole or a top like this. Because of the color of the jacket, I think you could wear it with so much. I know it’s a little pricey, but if I could get out and be normal again, I would be wearing it all of the time. It looks great with white jeans but blue looks just as good.

I think I have mentioned before that my parents have been living in an assisted living for about two years now because my dad has Parkinson’s. I haven’t been able to go and see him because they have been on lockdown. He has been bedridden 95% of the time since Christmas. The disease has progressed every couple of months. He has been on soft foods for a couple of months and now mostly liquids. Because of this, the facility let us go in and see him (of course, with masks and temperatures being normal) on Wednesday. He has lost a lot of weight and is having a tough time swallowing.

My brother and I have had several conversations about how cruel the disease is and how horrible it is for him and my mom. I don’t want to play God, but I wish we could put down loved ones humanely as we do for our beloved animals when the quality of life is over, and there is no cure. I know that probably sounds horrible for me to say, but to watch someone you love in a situation like this is awful.

Okay, that was a downer! So sorry! What are your plans for the weekend? Anything exciting that you can tell me? I live for good news! Whatever you are doing this weekend, I hope you get to laugh! Thank you for reading!
