UPDATE FEBRUARY 2017!?!
Well, it’s been a hectic 2 years since my last update. Still in Chicago, still working as a nurse in infection prevention, daughter got divorced, son got married, became a grandma (WOOHOO!), on/off/on/now officially off with “special friend”, coping with my brother and his cancer, living through tumultuous political mayhem but looking forward to spring, my garden, my grandson!!!
Updating the Update: January 2015 !!
After a brief stint in New York City I am moving back to Chicago. Still a nurse, still a mom but unsure about almost everything else. Seriously…
Update: December 2013
I am still here in Chicago, still an Infection Control Nurse Consultant, still trying to make up to my kids for my time away, still have my beloved Cleo, the cat, bought a house and
have a “special” friend….stay tuned!
i’m still a middle-aged american woman but i recently moved back to my hometown of chicago after living in england for the past 7 3/4 years…i don’t have to update my mom anymore because i live with her for the time being….now iwill be updating all the friends i made in england who are scattered all over.
i still don’t know what my plans are for the future-it’s not easy starting over at 53 but…the best part is i am still a nurse and i love, love, LOVE my new job as an infection control nurse consultant!!!
I still plan to comment on healthcare, nursing, america and any thing else that catches my fancy….
i’m just a middle aged american woman living in england for the past 4 5 6 7 years, confused about where i am going next. enjoying domestic bliss in my little semi detached ex council house love nest in south birmingham the heart of england.
i love my kids, my family and friends,
a special man, being a nurse, making stained glass, working in my garden and our cats cleo and jack!!
DISCLAIMER: let’s get this straight, i’m just one middle aged, hormone driven female with as many moods as the sky has stars. try not to take what i write here too seriously, while i try to write from the heart it is, at the end of the day, intended to keep my mom up to date with my life and thoughts while i am far away. i do have private areas that i need to keep private, my mom doesn’t need to hear the “bad” stuff…she just wants to know i am happy and share a laugh with me.
got a problem with that?
this is spooky, i picked the title for this blog rather spontaneously from a quote website
“The inner fire is the most important thing mankind possesses.”
when i went back to give credit to the author, i may not have chosen so randomly
we share the same birthday…must make a point of reading her poems
