    I feel that @PnorkelPW, I remember the fatigue I had for 2 weeks after having Covid was so extreme.

    Sounds like Christmas will be nice for you this year @Melody2821 :)

    I'm looking forward to...

    - Going out for dinner on Christmas even with my son , his mum, her husband and my partner. We all get along so well and have a great dynamic

    - Getting a massage

    - Seeing Avatar 2 tomorrow

    Three things I'm looking forward to are...........

    - 2023.......I didn't think I'd say that and it's only just sinking in that this year is almost over. I really feel like this is another fresh start and someone pointed out to me today that 2+0+2+3 = 7 which is my lucky number

    - Some hot nights hanging out at the beach until after dark and nightswimming..........there's just something about it that screams summer!

    - Hitting some more AA meetings...........I'm loving going to them again

    What better time to do three things I’m looking forward to than at the start of the new year:

    - A couple of days away this week with my daughter to go and hang with my brother and his family at the beach

    - Two weeks of not looking at emails or being contacted by work

    - Slowly starting to make the changes I’m wanting to make in 2023

    Hi everyone! I thought this weekend we could list out a few things we're all looking forward to!

    Remember the time span on this is whatever you want. You may have a few things you're looking forward to this week or things that you're working towards in the future!

    1. I have a few gigs coming up which I'm really looking forward to! I feel like I'm finally coming back out into the world after everything over the past few years

    2. getting on top of my reading! I'm one of those people that has like a thousand things on the go at once so It's good to get through at least one of the books I'm currently reading

    3. Spending time with my parents tomorrow. They live far away so I don't get to see them very often!

    How about everyone else? @lille @delemarie @zenadelphi @Chloe69 @skyechange @StivingForaBetterMe1966 @GypsyLee @lookingforhope @Berko @ScorpionPW @PnorkelPW

    Thanks @Lhiver...........getting out to gigs is definitely a sign of getting back to the way things were

    Three things I'm looking forward to are............

    - Getting my house painting done.............I'm not sure when that will be, I've talked about it for a while now...........but it'll be great when I finally get myself to do it

    - My daughter starting high school next week. It's another milestone in parenthood and she's super excited/nervous

    - Finishing my jigsaw puzzle. I'll even just be happy if I can get the border done!! It's 1000 pieces with no edges and 5 extra pieces in the box and the pattern doesn't make things any easier. I've been ding it slowly for weeks and have only got about 80 pieces down so far
