Have to say, I’m not particularly good with change. The last couple of months have brought changes in my mobility and how I spend my time. The biggest change, my DD and grandchildren have moved a two hour drive away. As one Sparkfriend said, what am I doing with my new found freedom? It almost feels like retirement all over again. I’ve been my working daughter’s back-up for child care while substitute teaching at the kids’ school, and I’ve loved every minute. However, life is about change and this is a great move for DD’s family, so I will adjust. This image reminds me of the support I have on SparkPeople.

Today is Founder’s Day in our retirement community. We celebrate with a parade and barbecue. Because I’m recovering from a hip injury my husband acquired a cart and decorated with one of his flags. Nice to get out and talk to friends.

    I am glad you can use the cart and get out and about. It is taking way too long for our hips to heal. Some days I get so frustrated. I have a couple good days and then it's bad again. At least you have a smile on your face and can enjoy the festivities!

    Marianne, you look great sitting with a big smile. I know how it is keeping you able to move much. So long as your brain and speech are so excellent all is good and you know it will be better soon.

    My walking and gardening keep me healthy on the outside but I cannot speak well and cannot remember my words. Pat in Maine. You look great, its just a little time to be on your feet. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
