My planned 18 in 2018 activities:

1. Read 6 books related to health.
2. Reread a childhood favorite book.
3. Read or watch Sophie's Choice. Watched 2/3/18
4. Read a book of poetry.
5. Hand tie a blanket.
6. Make a button bracelet.
7. Try 12 new recipes.
8. Make a lemon meringue pie from scratch.
9. Listen to 12 podcasts.
10. Take a class, one day or several and gardening ones don't count.
11.Attend a symphony performance.
12. Participate in the library's winter reading program. January 21 to March 3. I read 9 books and got a Bingo this year. I won a prize again this year which wasn't surprising since I don't think a lot of people sign up for this and you can only win one prize (there were over 20 offered).
13. Get a deep tissue massage.
14. Try acupuncture.
15. Get a Plant Peel Facial Treatment.
16. Play cards at the senior center.
17. Go on a Brewery Tour.
18. Attend open mic night. Just to listen.

Personal Information:
I live in Central Wisconsin. I retired from my job as a speech therapist for a local school district in June 2008. Then I worked part time until June 2012. Now I am fully retired. I have been married for 35 years. We only have fur kids. Mostly we've owned dogs but in November 2013 we decided to give a kitty a chance. Tony is quite an experience.


Other Information:
I love to read, cross stitch and crochet. My favorite thing to do is to walk the dogs. My husband was diagnosed with celiac disease in January 2011 so we have had to change the way we cook and eat. For the most part, it has been a positive change. He has other health problems that limit his mobility so I care for him as needed. I also share the care for my aging father and my stepmother who has dementia.

    Hi Janet - I'm so glad to hear that your sister is coming to help out. Having her there to help with your Dad should help put your mind at rest on that point. Then you can concentrate on taking care of yourself. You've done so much for your family. Now it's your turn.

    Hi
    oh no. I'm sorry she is having the nose bleed. Do you give her the herb? Sorry Molly.

    I watched the wedding I had taped yesterday morning. How about your walk? Is it nice in the cool temps? Yes!

    Yesterday my husband and I walked at the mall.
    I almost had 10K steps at bedtime. It's 9940. emoticon

    Hope Molly is doing ok now. Hugs for her and you.
