I am officially Retired…


I retired on Friday, December 2nd after working for 40+ years.  Most of it was spent in the medical field (administrative, not clinical).  I spent that time working in hospitals (6 total during my career) .  I had never aspired to this career.  I was going to be famous, you see, as an actress or a singer, or an artist. The first 18 years of my life were devoted to this endeavor and much of my early adult life I still pursued that dream to some degree…but never with the ambition of someone who really and truly wanted it.  I also had a very realistic and pragmatic side that loved having a roof over my head, food to eat and money in the bank.  I needed to work to support myself from the day I no longer lived with my family and there was no college fund or wealthy relative to sponsor me to finish my education.  At 18 I was on my own, working full time, taking courses at the local community collage and I took care of myself.  I’m proud of what I accomplished and I have no regrets.

As time went on I married and raised two wonderful sons who are now 30 and 24 years old;  divorced and remarried,  adding a Bear (my Hubby), another grown son and daughter (30 and 27) to my loving family and we have a total of four delightful grandsons!
