He's litter trained!

Not only is Caleb potty-trained, now....he is also litter trained! Mary called to tell me what "my grandson" had done.
This morning when she went into his room, he said "What did Caleb do?" and she said
"What did you do?" "Well, I went to the bathroom." That is when she noticed that the bathroom door was shut and he could not get to his potty chair. She asked him where did you go? He pointed to one of his toy boxes that he had emptied out and found that he had used it for his potty chair.
I am still laughing on that one...pretty ingenious little guy!

35 years....

It seems like a lifetime ago, and in some ways it is. Jack and I would have celebrated 35 years of marriage today. We had 29....and for that I am thankful. Sure, we both thought we would easily see 50....never once did we doubt it. We never once thought about death being a mitigating factor.
Nothing is permanant...that I have learned.

I found this picture of Mary and Caleb taken when he was a newborn....the picture says so much.....I know that feeling of peace and contentment that only holding our sweet little ones can bring. And now he is 2! It is all ready going fast...but he still loves to cuddle with Gramma!

If I could retire today, I would in a heartbeat!
One of my patients was telling me he was contemplating retiring in 3 or 4 months. I asked him wht he planned to do and he said he didn't know.
That's hard for me to swallow...I would not be bored...I know that for sure!
I know that money and health play such a big part, but there are a lot of things I could do on a limited income.
-Mentor students in the public school system
-continue to read--the public library if a great place to "travel"
-get back to quilting
-take classes at the university...many schools have special programs for senior if they are not pursuing a degree
-attend activities with my children & grandchildren
-scrapbook, of course
-travel if my income permits
-sit on my dock and read or fish
-maybe work part time at something that interests me and challenges me

Hmmmmm....I'm sure there is more
