For Myself

I need to take care of myself for myself, but I know that it impacts my three daughters.
I've worked in professional kitchens since the early 1970's. Food is a major part of my life. Being a woman in a male dominated field was a struggle back when I started. Being an older woman in a physically demanding industry is a struggle too. I enjoy the struggle. I enjoy the long hours, the heat, the noise. The food.
In my early 50's my metabolism started to slow down. Whoops.

Other Information:
The year that I turned 50 I went on my first hike. My husband is a big hiker, and I wanted something else to share with him. Since then I've been hiking to celebrate all our 'milestones' - birthdays, anniversaries, holidays. Living in up state NY, we do a lot of Adirondack hikes, but we also hike in the Shawangunks and the White Mountains of NH.

Thanks so much for all of your support. I always appreciate it. I'm feeling much better and now trying to balance school and life. It will take some work, but I think I can do it.

I hope you are enjoying the holiday. emoticon

Thanks for checking up on me:) i've been running around like a maniac the last couple weeks. getting ready for fall (what fall there is here in central florida :( ). i miss the cooler weather, the smell of crispy leaves and fireplaces so much this time of year.

btw.... I finally "escaped from Alcatraz" lol. i think i actually swam farther because I kept forgetting what number lap I was on.

have a great day Edlear ::)

Thanks so much for commenting on my blog from Sunday. I went back to school today, actually it was my clinical day, class is tomorrow.

I'm happy to report that my grandma is doing a little better today. They did have to drain fluid from her lungs, but she should be released in the next few days.

Thanks for your concern. emoticon
