Welcome to my coffee shop in the cyber neighborhood!

The Chronicles of Nani On Video

I am overcoming my inability to type with my ability to talk (and talk and talk and talk) I'll be posting a video every week on my YouTube channel. I'll be posting those videos here too along with an occasional regular blog in the mix. (As long as my hands are up to doing the extra typing.)

You'll be able to watch the videos here, but I encourage you to stop by my channel at YouTube once I'm up and running to follow me and get my numbers started!

Chronicles of Nani - Leave Of Absence

Sometimes things that you don't have but are necessary can pile up on your shoulders so bad that it drives you into depression. I'm not talking about feeling down, I'm talking about real life depression. Been there, been diagnosed with that, recovered and never want to do it again. But here I am. 

I need a home health aide, someone who can help keep me cleaned but also help with getting the things I use organized and get me ready to do my Vlog every week. Aides are in very short supply and very difficult to find unless you have tons of money right now. Agencies, who don't pay aides well at all, are charging even more because they can't find employees. Some independent contractor aides are asking for an hourly rate that is less than the agencies asked for and more of what they're worth and in the price range I can afford but some are asking as much or more than the agencies asked for and none of them want to pay taxes on the income. But I have to have an aide for me to be able to do pretty much anything. 

I need to take a leave of absence maybe as little as three weeks could be as much as a couple months, but I do want to come back.

Chronicles of Nani - Photography Video (my week off)

TV shows get to take a week or weeks off and show you whatever reruns they want you to see. They have a whole staff and crew working on their shows and my YouTube show is just me with a little bit of help now in then. So I'm taking a week off and YOU get to pick what rerun to watch or just enjoy a couple minutes of my photography and I'll see you next week!

Chronicles of Nani - Regroup

Being organized and in control of my own brain is something that's always been the driving force in everything I do. MS has not taken that away from me. In some ways it's made it more difficult to physically keep up with what my brain expects of me, but it hasn't taken that drive away. 

However, I have always had the tendency to take on more than I actually have time for. That's always gotten me a little mentally cluttered but I've always had ways to unclutter myself. Stupid MS, seems to get me cluttered with less, but the drive to do more than I have time for is still alive and well. Regrouping has always meant uncluttering my physical space. The space is smaller now, but uncluttering it has the same mental regrouping effect

Chronicles of Nani - More Vaccine

We start off with a little bit baseball! Actually, a whole bunch of baseball. Then I wheel onto my accessible soapbox to talk about Covid, changes in vaccination for immunocompromised and questions that can't be answered about the selfish people who are afraid to be vaccinated and are possibly helping the pandemic get worse.

The Chronicles of Nani - Outtakes + Cats

This is a collection of clips from the cutting room folder. It's funny or informative bits that just didn't fit in their original vlogs. There's also a "halftime show" with some short cat bits. Because cats seem to rule YouTube. LOL
