I'll never~ever~ever give up!

I feel like I'm the luckiest person in the world.
I try to live every day in gratitude

I'm retired at 61 and still paying my bills (barely).

my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have ...

Thanks for your comments on my blogs. When we first moved to Ontario, our vacations used to be trips back to Nova Scotia to visit relatives... not relaxing!

Today, I wouldn't recommend a road trip! 12 hours in the car, no proper meal stops, pool closed when we arrived at our hotel. Lots of nasty sniping on my part (yes, I'm a nasty b****) sometimes. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

I know - I'm not one for labels - but reading it gave me some comfort in that perhaps she is reading this and acting it out. I swear at times she's testing out every thing out there and being a poster child for troubled kids... I still hold faith and hope that this too shall pass.

when you asked if I was okay I thought it was in relation to the stories in the UK press about paedophiles as I was one of the first victims to come forward about Jimmy Savile. There has just been a further report released about him and Rolf Harris so it has been all over the media once again.

I find it very difficult to get out of bed in case I have to see, hear or read about it AGAIN.

However, I am doing very well and managing to live with it.
