I finally did it. I am officially retired as of September 2008. Amazing and incredible. I retired into craft projects and volunteer work that keep me so very busy. You can follow along on my website to see my progress. My neighbor and I are getting a table at two of the local condo associations (ours and another) Christmas craft shows (Nov. 1 and Nov. 15). Lots to do including a doll here and there.
There was a scare with my daughter's health which is not over, but it is not as bad as we thought it was going to be.
Daddy lost his place at the residential care place but there will probably be a place for him as soon as he completes rehab in the nursing home. It does take a 92 year old man a bit longer to heal (broken ribs) and be back on his feet. I will be visiting him over my birthday the end of this month.
I am also looking forward to catching up with my sister and friends in IL. Next month (Nov) is Nascar at Homestead.
I appreciate your patience waiting for me to write at my Blog.
