When I was at Sarah Lawrence, 1959 to 1963 we did not get "grades", when were you there?

I think right now, as a retired grandmother, is the happiest time of my life.  It has less drama, and is more stress free than any other time of my life.  True, my husband and I both have some health issues, and can't do everything we once did, but he's still able to work part time  so we can travel.  We are blessed.

Believe it or not I was happiest while working for NASA....YES....all 28 YEARS of my employ there. There was ALWAYS SOMEthing interesting and the people around me were fairly highly educated and extremely interested in their own jobs and it showed.....not to mention the product(s) that NASA put out there and the spin-offs from those products. There was almost ALWAYS SOMEthing exciting going on there. Fortunately I worked at NASA headquarters so when we went to the centers (Kennedy Space Center, Houston/Manned Flight Center, Langley, Goddard, JPL) for budget reviews we usually received a very warm welcome and, often, another tour of the facilities.

My happiest time when my siblings&I were very young,our family would spend  summer vacations in Vermont&New Hampshire.Our cousins lived in both states,nice to have the yearly family reunion. Our parents moved to a retirement community,Kendall in Hanover,NH from'92-'03. I would come visit them my vacation time off from work.

 My happiest time now is being retired,boggles my mind it will be 4 yrs in March. I'm busier than ever,enjoy my volunteer activites,helping my 'extended 'family' friends whenever they need my help. I try to live my life every day by this:"Its more blessed to give than to receive" Acts 20:35 Sue

The happiest time of my life is now when I am old enough to know better!

Also when I was in my 30's and we were 'homesteading" in North Idaho.

Building a home, raising a garden & orchards & a child, and then heading to warmer climates in the winter as we were living off the grid & the outhouse was not that romantic after a few cold nights!

Being a young snow bird & homeschooling our son, while we camped with friends on their off the grid property in Hawaii was one of the happiest times of my life.


Wow!  I'll bet you have some interesting stories to tell.  I would love to hear them.  Have you thought about writing a memoir?  Perhaps you could post some on the "Writing Memoirs" site.
