Holidays Lost

Thanksgiving day I came to the conclusion that I’ve turned into one of those people. One of those people who finds that the holidays are a bummer. I don’t dread them. As the season starts to approach I find myself looking forward to them with anticipation and excitement. The day arrives and suddenly I amContinue reading “Holidays Lost”

When I get very old…….

After working at this independent senior adult community for a few months, I have discovered some things and decided to make myself a list so that I don’t forget. When I get very old: 1.
