Where to Start???

It’s been two years since I blogged.

So much has changed, yet much is still the same.

I lost Penny, my beloved Chihuahua, over a year ago. She and I were together fifteen years. Of all the dogs I’ve loved, she was the special-est. She’ll be the one waiting for me when it’s my turn to cross over the rainbow ridge into eternity.

Although Penny is irreplaceable, a house without a dog is not a home. I have another puppy–a feisty American Eskimo named Murphy.

I retired from teaching in June, and moved to a beach-side resort on the other side of the island.

Although I was done with teaching, I wasn’t ready to do nothing. Now I work at a grocery store–a seasonal Christmas job that became permanent. I quite enjoy being a cashier, but I’m not very fast, so I spend most of my shifts packing groceries for the real talent at Club Pricey Freeze. (I’m not allowed to mention my employer on social media, so that’s a made up name.)

And, perhaps best of all, I have a new man. He’s kind and generous and handsome. I feel safe and cared for when I’m with him. More about him (much more!) in later posts.

What hasn’t changed? I still think about things too much and waste endless amounts of energy second guessing every decision I make.

…And I’m looking forward to blogging again.

  1. Welcome back to the world of words my friend! I have my blog page in the apps above my page and I look at it, but nothing much happens, too many contests I guess. Perhaps one day I’ll win one. I’m very happy to have met both your new men.

  2. It’s great to have you back, but first I have to say I am so sorry about Penny. There will be a little dog waiting for you on Rainbow Bridge. Looking forward to hearing about the new man. Here’s to lots of stories. ❤️❤️

  3. I’m just now catching up. It’s wonderful to hear from you – and such adventures! So sad about your chihuahua. We lost our Springer Spaniel to epilepsy last year. Just 4 years old. So these things leave a massive gap. Life toddles on here in New Zealand. It’s so delightful to hear of your wondrous lease of life. I just might be inspired to put on my walking shoes!
