I had such good intentions and good goals for this past year, and somehow life just got in the way! A couple of unexpected events.
First my older daughter, Vicki, is now in a long-term health care facility near her home in Salem. Still no diagnosis, but she is slowing improving. However, it feels like she may not be able to go home to a "normal" life. I am just so thankful for her faithful, loving husband, Norris.
Second, I was "dismissed" from my position as office manager in the church I attend. Had planned to work until next spring, but our Pastor wanted a change. I had worked there for over 3 years - no reviews and no input as to what he wanted different. Am still struggling with my feelings - somehow I feel betrayed.
So, now am finally fully retired - and loving every minute of it. Like today - got up about 7:30 and it is now after noon!! What have I done? Well, showered, had breakfast, did some exercises, and swept the bathroom. And, now sitting here browsing on my computer. May watch a movie this afternoon while I knit some more on a lace shawl - someday I may actually get it finished. This evening my son, Greg, will be over for our weekly Movie and Dinner. Probably will get Chinese take-out - we have not had any for quite a while. And, we have a few movies that we have not watched yet. Need to get those out.
Just want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year!!
