Me again

OK, this starving artist thing officially sucks!! Laid off at work, car repossessed. I'd say my week couldn't get any worse, but then it probably would. You'd think okay, now she has time to draw and paint, but between trying to figure out how to get my kids where they need to be and looking for a job, there seems to be no free time.

On a positive note, I have been asked to join a senior volley ball team..Woo-who . I love volleyball. I just have to figure out how to get to the practices and games....Any seniors (50+) out there reading this, check into senior games in your area and get involved. According to what I am learning in my Gerontology class staying active and continually learning helps to keep mind and body young and dementia free.

Stay young and I hope you are having a better week than I am.

Check in time

Time to check in again.
The summer was great. I did a lot of traveling. Back home now and back in school.
I am taking web design and gerontology. I really enjoying both classes. Web design is fun. Gerontology is the study of seniors. It was depressing to find out that I am considered a senior. I certainly do not feel like a senior. Last week we took a survey on aging and it told me that my life expectancy, based on the answers to the survey, was 92. I can live with that. I have a long ways to go yet.

 I also found out about Senior Olympics and have managed to find a local volleyball team that competes in competitions. I will be joining them for the competitions that start in January....Yeah!!! I can't wait. I have always loved sports and when I gave them up to raise my children I thought I would never get a chance to compete again. Now I will. A new gym is opening up in October right next to my work. I joined so that I can start getting in shape.

If anyone would like to check out a web site I designed for my class here is the link.

Take care all.
