At last!

The computer has been down for a long time now. With Mary Beth's help on the phone she figured out how to tell me what do do to make it work. Considering that I never touched a computer until I was 64 years old, and planned never to do so, I am not so bad. My last employer sweetly explained that I must 'computer' if I wanted to work there. So I am sort of self taught with a lot of help from family.

Let's see. George fell and broke his fibula (outside bone on leg), sprained his ankle, which is healing well. I still have trouble seeing with the Sjogren's disease at work and to cap it off, I splatted myself on the floor yesterday, bleeding all over the rug and myself. I am well bandaged now and happily nothing is broken. I really need to learn to slow down and not to multitask with 3 or 4 things at once. So, from now on, I will treat myself with more respect. I hope.

We have been inundated with love and food and transportation for whatever we need by both family and our wonderful church family. This is the most loving group of Christians with whom I have ever been affiliated. They don't wait to be asked, they just show up. We are receiving 'meals for the elderly' Yes, the term offends me, but the food doesn't. It is wonderful and a real help. San Angelo is a unique city.

Friday five follows:

Tell us about the worst job you ever had.

Happily, I have never had one I disliked. Have had run ins with some principals whose vision of child development is not mine, but the jobs were always good. The years at the bank were difficult since I don't as a rule, balance things. I just write 'adjusted balance in the checkbook and that suffices. Banks look with a jaundiced eye on this, so I had a lot of help here also. But good jobs. I also teach a Bible class and run a hysterical children's choir - both also jobs I love.

2. Tell us about the best job you ever had.
When I had my own private practice of Speech/Language Path. and could work with children the way I thought it should be done. Really miss that.

3. Tell us what you would do if you could do absolutely anything Read and pursue my fiber arts passion all the time.

4. Did you get a break from labor this summer?

I'm retired, so life is a break. Eat your heart out. You too will get there.

5. What will change regarding your work as summer morphs into fall? Are you anticipating or dreading?
Nothing changes but the amount of clothing I wear and whether I plant things or not.

Bonus question: For the gals who are mothers, do you have an interesting story about labor and delivery (LOL)?

I do remember telling the doctor as I was preparing to deliver my first child that I had definitely changed my mind and was going home and we could do this another day. Each time the doctor promised me I would forget all of the labor and delivery. . By the last one, I was compelled to tell him I had forgotten nothing, but it was all worth it.

God is good, all the time.........
