I am 65 years old, married for 43 years, have three grown daughters, and two young granddaughters. I live in Illinois and am retired from a 20-year job as an activities assistant on an Alzheimers' unit in a nursing home.
After retirement I decided to "broaden my horizons" by expanding my activities. I joined a knitting class, volunteered in a kindergarten class, and caught up on my reading. One of the ladies in my knitting group "sparked" me with informatin about this program...and here I am!
Thank you for the thoughtful comments on my "Opinions" blog and for being so honest. Maybe the longer we live, the more we learn and the more opinions we have. I still think I have to cut it in half, at least. I really understand your story about people at work not speaking up.
Thanks for the goodie and photo comment, much appreciated.
He's a little smasher and the first boy for twelve years, the other inbetween grandkids are girls. I had him a few hours to myself while his mam had a hospital checkup, bit nerve wracking at first but he stayed awake quite a lot which put my mind at rest...at least I could see he was breathing ...lol!
My knee has settled down a bit, it's a more managable pain now. I'm walking better, still slow but not limping so much. I've an appointment for an MRI scan on 31st so not too long now.
Good morning Nan, beter late than never...lol... Been a bit busy and had a painful knee so not been moving about much.
Our new grandson arrived on the 2nd, 6lb 8oz and gorgeous! Having lots of cuddles!
The weather has been beautiful, sunny and mild until yesterday, it turned very windy with squally showers and then decided to absolutely pour down all night. It's still at it this morning and the wind has increased to gale force...I'm glad I'm not going anywhere!
