Catching Up

Well I see that I have been lax.  I even missed posting on my birthday.

On May 21, I turned 65.  I have been waiting for 4 years to turn 65 so that I could gt on Medicare.  I haven't had health insurance since my husband passed away.  As of May 1st, I now have Medicare.  As well as the title of official old lady.  And oh my/yikes I am only 5 years away from 70.  Not sure how I will handle that one.  So far age 35 bothered me the most.  

On my 35th birthday, I felt like I had lost at least half my energy.  And sadly it never came back.  Bill laughed and said it was only one day.  When he turned 35 nine months later, he felt the same.  I think his sister said she cried all day the day she turned 30.  I guess it hits everyone at different ages.

It's funny how most of our lives we are waiting for a certain time to reach us.  As a toddler, we couldn't wait to be a big kid and turn 5.  That seemed like a magical age.  Then we couldn't wait to be teens.  After that 18 and out of school so we could be our own boss.  Then at 21,  we could legally drink.  At about 25 or so , our car insurance stopped being so expensive.  After that I don't remember any time I wanted to be a different age until 65. 

I haven't really been doing any artwork.  I guess I am going thru yet another slump.  That too shall pass.  I just have to wait it out.  

Thru Facebook I reconnected with several ladies I went to school with in another town during part of 6th and all of 7th grade.  One doesn't have a computer but the others connected me to her thru phones.  I had lunch with two of them separately and then last Saturday the same two had lunch with me again.  It was nice to be together and have lunch and get to travel down memory lane.  I had a wonderful time and we plan to make it a monthly habit.  Facebook is wonderful for keeping people in touch and also for getting people reconnected. 

Well thanks to all my followers.  I hope I don't keep you waiting too much.  I will try to post more often and thanks for hanging in there.  At least I hope you are still there.
