I've filled out the application to become a volunteer at a local hospital. I'm seriously considering becoming a Leslie Sansone Certified Walk Leader. The thought of a part time job has been crossing my mind (can one actually find a job now?). I live in Michigan which is really hurting from loss of jobs.

I don't work "outside" anywhere...but I do surveys & that makes me a little pocket change & keeps my mind active. I also love to play games on Winster every day!

Hi Scotty Eve, I too am a Caregiver for 2 days a week to a lady with Alzheimer's. It keeps me active, I get to use my skills, it earns me some cash plus I enjoy it.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Stay well and happy and don't forget to smile!

I'm so glad to hear that you decided to join our little group (although we ARE growing)! I had hoped when I started this group to hear more about what other seniors are doing in their retirement years. I guess there are many among us who find the need for a bit more money. Everything is so much more expensive when a person retires than you anticipate it will be. I wonder how many of us work part time? I am a Caregiver for 3 hours each week. Not much, but it IS something.

Trying to find the silver lining in all the clouds!

Good morning. I am trying to get started with Spark People. I have logged in several times, and while I have belonged to many many many forums of all types...whatever I was interested in at the time.....none of them have such a huge site. Its like going to a new city, and you have to drive, and the map doesn't make much sense, and you can't find your way around. So, just like that big city, you do it by baby steps, and eventually it won't seem so confusing. Y'all know what I mean? I have used Diet Power over the years, and know that counting calories is the only thing that works, and I am continueing to use it, because it works for me, but thought it would be fun to belong to this group too. BTW, I am 62, for 3 more months..sigh...retired in May after 26 and a half years at Kroger. I really do want to find a part time job, but having a really hard time. Doing some on Ebay to make ends meet. Sounds like it could be fun in this new "city", so I will be back!!

We've got it handled! I, SCOTMAMA, will be Scotty.
Eve, you will be Texas Eve, and now that leaves us with just one "Eve" -- now, being retired SENIORS, we just have the problem of remembering "who" we are!

lol -- have a good day, ladies! Hugs to all!

Wow! Two Eve's in one team -- that will be confusing, won't it? Maybe I should change mine to Scotty to go along with my ID SCOTMAMA!

Welcome to our team, Eve! Love to get new members!

Eve - you sound so sweet! My husband and I have pets also. Three Boston Terriers that we spoil like they're our kids.

Isn't retirement grand?

I live in Michigan. Rainy today but we needed it.

Good Morning,

I just found this team this morning & since it seemed perfect for me, joined in...both my husband & myself are retired & enjoying doing what we want to do...LOL.I have been a "Sparker" for a while now & I am half way to goal, but I am finding this last half the most difficult!
We live in TX & have four beautiful cats that we spoil rotten..
