Meme Must Have a New Job



Forrest has not had a special day with just Meme in a while. The last time he spent the night he woke me up at 5 am and told me he felt like he was going to be sick....urp!!! So today I picked him up at school and we went to the Children's Museum. As we were getting out of the car, he asked, "Meme, do you have another job"? I wondered why we would ask that right then...he said, "I just wondered, cause you are taking me to the Children's Museum"...I understood then because I have preached to them that I would not have as much money since I am retired. He just knew that I must have gone out and got a job, to be spending big money on the Children's Museum.....which he loves, loves, loves....

Since I'm planning on retiring in 49 days, I understand your son's concern. My wife shares it with me everyday. "Can we afford it?"
I never respond with the answer in my head which is: "Why don't I just keep working so we can afford a really nice funeral for me?" Time to live a little.

My youngest grandchildren - do not miss anything. They hear and think about more then we realize.

What a sweet child. You must be so happy to be able to spend time with him like this. Retirement is a big decision. Looks like you are handling it well.

I'll get it right yet. I finally got on my blog site MACFISHSPEAK and noted your comment/question posted in December 2008. Yes I am LM :). Blogging will be very new to me. I do just about all of my communicating via email and I forgot about my blog site.

Nice to meet you. Best. LM
