I am living in Minnesota now and working at a thrift store. I need to find other work as this is only part time. I enjoyed helping with my great nieces for the time I had with them. I will only go back to nannying if I find a perfect job for me. I worked as a nanny for over twenty years. My niece lives in the Metairie part of New Orleans. My baby work ended sooner than planned, and I am helping with the babies grandmother, my sister Mary,who has memory loss. I was born in Los Angeles and left there when I was 16 years old. I have lived in Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, Maryland, Virgina, DC, Minnesota and Puerto Rico. I was one of twelve children from the same two parents, all single births. There are ten of us still alive now. I have more family than I like to count! One more sister died, so their are only nine of us left.

    Last time I worked as a nanny I was a college student, the husband was deployed to military duty and the wife (if I remember correctly)was a teacher or library aide (I was in college 23 years ago!) She also gave me a book on how to get and keep jobs

    Thank you for commenting on my blog. My knee just recently started bothering me. I usually stay off of it, b/c of arthritis in my hip. I didn't think anything of it, until I got back home. Have a great day!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog...it was a challenging 5 weeks, but, everything is getting back to "normal"

    I can't wait to go to Savannah...I've experienced the heat there...last year, my son got married on Tybee Island on July 17th...I remember opening my door at 6am and getting hit in the face with a wall of high humidity! ugh!! however, once the ocean breezes started, it was nice..
