    Hey Nettie!

    I love your cat picture.

    The library wasn't what I thought it would be. No direction, no staff meetings, no policies without "exceptions," and a board member that liked to cause trouble. Sad. After almost a year I quit. When I first retired from the prison I almost went nuts cleaning out closets and washing the house - whatever I could find to do. I didn't feel right not working. I missed people, like you said, and felt like I wasn't productive. Working part time at the library was the perfect fit - at least for a while. I don't plan on looking for another job. Retiring from part-time was easier than retiring from full time.

    A bible study sounds great. We do have one at one of the local churches that is starting up, but it's a 24 week study. I don't think I can commit to that right now. I started teaching religious classes last week for Catholic kids who go to public schools. I love it. My kids are in 7th grade. That will take time - lesson planning, grading stuff and the class itself. And I still have my mom in assisted living in the next town over. I spend quite a bit of time over there. She's 81 and has diabetes and complications from a head-on collision on the interstate that happened about 25 years ago, now. Her health is up and down. Mostly down. She's having a rough time. But I try to cheer her up and keep her brain busy. I'll miss her like crazy when she's gone. We talk in person or on the phone daily.

    Glad you're still able to get that RV out and go places. I know what you mean about arthritis. I have it in my spine. In a couple of weeks I see the doc to find out what is up with my knees. Just all of a sudden they hurt and it's really painful to kneel at church. I'm hoping it's something temporary or food related that can be changed, but I'm not holding my breath. It's just life. I keep smiling and keep moving. What else can we do?

    Nettie, I just read your status! I hope that your hubby is getting better fast! Has he seen a chiropractor? They really help me when my back hurts! Hope you get to go on your cruise! We are currently in Vermont, left Maine yesterday. Headed to the Adirondacks in upstate NY tomorrow! Please let me know how hubby is doing! I will pray! emoticon
