I am a wife, Mom to 14 and 16 year old daughters. I don't have any siblings per se. I oversee and manage the care of my Mom who has advanced MS. She is non weight bearing and has live in caregivers. She has always managed her life and finances by herself. Recently she has cognitive decline and I have to find a way to talk to her about taking over her finances, overseeing her finances and managing the caregivers to make sure that they do not take advantage of her. She will run out of money within the next 3-5 years and I have no idea what to do when that happens. I will have kids in college when that happens. I am extremely stressed about this.

Oh, hey, another "call me for business" ad. Are you here to attract friends, or to attract business? (rhetorical) just sayin'.  Cat Tongue

Ahoy. My wife and I live in the little Central Oregon Coastal town of Lincoln City, OR.

We both grew up in big cities, but really enjoy the small town here.  She is a Blackfoor Indian, and I am a pirate... descended from Pirates.  I had a promise of getting my own ship once, but, typically, the promise was reniged. Thanks for taking an interest. Jack.

What part of the country do you live in? That might help, especially if you might, oneway, want to actually meet people, and make "real" friends. Smiley Wink

Hi 👋 Newbie! ☺️

 

I'm 🌹 a newbie too! Your introduction caught my eye because I am a history buff also. My grandfather 👴 peaked my interest in history when I was young. His interest was in the Civil War because he was born in the south. I was born in the Cocoa Beach/Cape Canaveral, Florida area. I live in Tampa, Florida now. 

 

I am a 59 year old single young lady. 😉 When I was attending college my history professor 👨‍🏫 recommended that I become a history professor because I always aced his tests. I wish I had followed his advice, but my interests at the time took me in another direction. I obtained my Bachelors degree in Gerontology and am one semester away from my Masters degree in Public Health. I am currently using my Gerontology training for volunteer opportunities in my church.

 

I consider myself to be retired also, but I have been on Social Security Disability for the past three years. I would enjoy 😊 learning more about you.

 

Have a blessed day! 🙏🏻☀️

Hi! I'm a newbie. 😂 I'm trying to figure things out here. It seems simple so far... Any rooms you suggest I start with? I'm 54, single lady, recently retired who would love to meet people, interesting conversation, love to learn new things and especially enjoy people and history.
