* Finally!

Finally!  I am well again!  After months of the flu and battling secondary infections, I am healthy and invigorated.  Plus I just slept for almost 12 hours!  A recent article on sleep habits suggests that younger and middle-aged folks can make up for lost sleep during the week by snoring away on the weekend.  Too little and too much sleep are both associated with increased “mortality risk.”  But my age group?  The ancient ones?  The researchers said I am likely to get what I need.  They don’t know how hard it is to close a thriller in the middle of the night!

I do feel older today.  My dearest teaching widower and I attended a special dinner at church last night for the ancient, 60+ age group.  I secretly thought that most of the folks cheated to get a delicious meal.  Now that I am officially REALLY old, I’m thinking of some one-liners: Old teachers don’t die, they just lose their class.  Or this one: Old teachers don’t die, they just wipe the slate clean.  What about this?  Old math teachers never die, they just reduce to lowest terms.

Whatever our age, we are thrilled to be alive and well!  And looking mighty strong!

    • Cee, you are so kind. I had thought I was on the mend when I took a supplement to boost my immune system and ended up with a violent reaction and subsequent infection. It’s been a long time. I’ve missed you!!
