Second chances

I have not worked since July of 2009. During that time, I have learned that I have an identity that doesn't come from the work I do. I have learned to let myself daydream, dawdle, and take time for whatever is interesting me at the moment. I want to find ways to spend my extra my time that make me feel useful.

Hi Sarah, the 5 generation picture was taken in 2010 at my mom's 80th birthday party. My grandma was 15 when Mom was born, and 55 when I was born. She passed away a year and a half ago and I miss her every day. She was quite the lady.

Hi Sarah, we have a dog but no cats. The picture was taken at my parents' house. No cats here because John is terribly allergic.

Thank you for the goodie and Happy Monday! I haven't finished writing about my first train vacation and am already looking forward to the next one. I need to finish part 3 so I can get the photos off my phone!

My exercise has been pretty irregular due to plantar fascaitis, I have been pretty frustrated with ongoing foot issues; however, I could certainly use some accountability too--so lets do it!

Thanks for the goodie. I've lost a pound in the last 2 weeks, but my tracker didn't update. I wonder why? Not that a pound is much, but it's better than the gaining trend I've been on for the past few months.

Hi Sara, and thank for the goodie! We have 8 granddaughters and 6 grandsons, 10 of whom live within walking distance to our home, so our nest is rarely empty for long. Congratulations on your new little one. Be sure to post the news when he arrives and I will pray for a safe delivery in the meantime.
