Day Nine: Two smileys that describe your life right now.
Day Ten: One confession.

1. My friend LB, whom I miss very much

2. My husband, Brett

3. My sister, Katie, who is living with us while she trains to be a massage therapist. It's been so much fun to have her around all the time, and she's an excellent house guest who helps with chores.

4. My brother, Kevin, who never fails to amuse. When my mother asked him recently if he wanted to go shopping with her, he replied, "I don't think it's in my best interest."

5. One of the very sweet ladies at work, Martha. She submitted some sculpture pieces of hers for our Resident Art Calendar and when I ran into her yesterday morning in line for her meds, she asked- so timidly- if she could possibly have a few more copies of it for family members. She held my hand & patted it while I told her about my plans for a Resident Art Show in the spring, which she agreed to participate in. My grandma Genevieve was one of my best pals in addition to being my grandmother and godmother. She passed away 4 years ago and I miss her all the time. But this sweet lady reminded me that in addition to doing work I love, I'm surrounded by 150-some grandmas every time I'm at work. Granted, some are fairly cantakerous and some just plain unpleasant, but the grand majority of the residents are delightful and I thank this woman for reminding me how lucky I am to have this job and get to know them.

(Hope Santa was reading that last one. I could use the points.)


  1. "I don't think it's in my best interest."
    Hahaa! Oh, Kevin. Stay you, bro.

    That part about the grandmas at your job was so sweet. I bet Santa totally gives you points.
