Stone Soup by Jan Eliot for February 05, 2010
Joan: Holly, I can appreciate why you are looking for something more INTERESTING than baby-sitting to earn money. Holly: You DO, Aunt Joan? Joan: Sure! You want something that stimulates you intellectually...and is FUN! Joan: Well, good luck with that. Luci: !!
amen to that, Macushlalondra. i love my job and there are days i don’t want to go. my Dad is one who always claims to love being retired, then complains about never getting a vacation. now that Mom has passed away, i think he finds himself feeling lonely more often than he’d admit to my siblings and i, but he’s in a seniors’ apartment with lots of people from his own background and seems to be taking advantage of some of the activities they offer, so it looks like he’s starting to make the adjustment.
