Old People

So, for awhile I was HAVING a hard time @ work. I just wasn’t happy. Since I moved and certain drama has left my life, work has been amazing! One good thing about working with old people is…
… They teach me how to do thing I don’t know how to do! Like Lemon Meringue pie! It was so good! Its funny though because they have all these secret additives and little ditties they add to every recipe. No matter what we bake, one resident always makes us put a splash of vanilla in it for good taste. So far it works!

We also finished tying a quilt today for charity. It has ONLY taken is 2 weeks but it was SOOO much fun sitting with the ladies and talking and laughing. I really am the luckiest person alive to have the job I have.

Lately the residents have been telling me “How Great” I am. We had a resident council meeting today and I am the official note taker. Most of it is complaints. They then said something along the lines of, “We love Laura. She plans such fun stuff and is the best driver we know.” I didn’t write it down and someone said, “Laura you are suppose to put that in the notes.” It was awkward writing it because I have to send it to my bosses but I secretly like hearing it.

Anyways, enjoy the picture of my VERY first lemon meringue pie!!!

I am a conservative, slightly old-fashioned crazy girl. I love to read, write, sew, scrapbook, cook, bake, do crafts, enjoy nature, take my car off-roading, ride my bike, and just stay busy. I sometimes say I want a lazy day BUT I hate not having anything to do which means I frequently stretch myself too thin. I am the Life Enrichment Director at an assisted living facility. I love being around the elderly population. They are such amazing people who have so much to offer and teach. I also love the little guys too... I love being around kids, especially my nieces and nephews! In December of 2019 I was diagnosed with a Chiari Malformation that quite literally may have been a life changing diagnosis. I went from feeling like I was crazy. To maybe having answers.
