Fran and Tweety;
i also enjoy reading about the days of fellow nurses on the "Good Morning" thread.
All are welcome. It is in the "Break Room" ( http://allnurses-breakroom.com/general-off-topic/
)and easy to recognize as it has the date in the thread title. Here is one from last week:
I retired at 70 a little over a year ago. For several months I volunteered through the United Way in a school library with K thru 2 kids. When in my 40s I worked out about 5 times a week, worked at least 3 12 hour night shifts, was active in my union and some volunteering.
With age I seemed to need more rest so only worked out when I had two nights off in a row. Now I lift weights and take seniot (Silver Sneakers) and other classes at the gym or walk a few miles looking a peoples yards or through a park..
I drive family and friends to doctors appointments and tests. I take notes and type them up so they know what their plan of care is. These are people who wouldn't have regular care without encouragement. My own husband is one.
I do not do Face Book because I like my privacy too much.
Since retiring I read about three books a week. Most I buy at thrift shops and return after reading OR buy them for my Kindle.
