HI, Recently retired last March. I have 5 grandchildren. 3 on the East Coast and 2 in Arizonia. We have 2 Shih Tzu dogs that are 13 and 15 years old. Would like to travel to the National Parks here and there.

Summer was not too exciting as I broke my ankle and am just starting to be able to walk with a cane. Hope to get out of this walking boot next Friday. Fingers crossed my surgeon says okay.

Hi @waves45jl Julia and welcome to the online community! I join you in your hope that your walking boot is removed next Friday! Smiley Happy  Maybe you'll be able to travel to a national park or two this winter?

K_6wR1Cb.jpgPhoto taken 2015Hello from Georgia. I'm looking forward to exchanging chats, information, thoughts, ideas,  etc. with all of you.

I'm a single, retired school teacher who enjoys life and people in general.

Volunteer work has always been important to me in community where I live/civic/church/school. One example: I volunteer teach illiterate adults reading at the public library. A very rewarding experience because these adults really want to learn.

Again, I look forward to meeting all of you active members.

 


@annej388808  Hi! (waves)  Nice to have you here. I hope you have had a chance to look around and that you've found topics of interest. If you have questions, ask away. Somebody will saunter by with an answer. Smiley Happy

 

Gorgeous photo. Your hair is beautiful, btw. Smiley Happy

Hi I’m Kim. I live in Manassas Virginia. I have three children and 7 grandchildren. I live with and care for my elderly mother while working full time. After 44 years of marriage I sadly lost my husband to cancer 9 month ago. I look forward to interacting with people whom have similar experiences and meeting new friends in the community.

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.
