A Month Gone By

I can't believe that a month has gone by already!! Where does the time go.

No pictures this post, but I promise to put some up soon.

The family reunion went as well as can be expected. Not everybody could make it due to job demands, especially the younger generation. Perhaps the date will be better in two years, however no one offered to organize this next one.

I am really enjoying my vacation at home. I am sewing, even doing some sewing for income. Strange for me cause I really don't know what to charge. I even bought.....are you ready.... An Embroidery machine and so have been learning how to use it and fooling around with it. I am having so much fun!!

I have also spent a great deal of this past month thinking about retirement and pulling back from some of my volunteer activities. I am heading into a stressful position at the other school this year. It seems the student I will be working with the most has changed from the sweet child I knew in kindergarten. She now hits out, bites and kicks..... I will probably need the time away from volunteering to relax and unwind.

Harvey is talking more and more about retirement and I really would like to be able to spend time with him and not worry about going to work.

Off to do some sewing.
God bless.

As you know I don't have a job outside of home. I have tons of volunteer activities and club activities. Honey Bear is planning to retire from his present job soon. He is going back to school and thinking of starting a new job, helping others on a part time basis. He remarked last weekend that I was very busy. I've already told him, I don't want to give up my activities and he doesn't want me to. I am looking forward to our being able to take some mini vacations and road trips. We used to decide during the week that we'd do a road trip on the weekend, we'd pack a picnic basket and an overnight bag and head in some direction or other, and spend the night somewhere before returning home. Those impromtu trips ended when he began commuting and only being home on weekends so I'm looking forward to being able to do it again.
Happy sewing,
Mama Bear
