A journal entry from January 17, 2006 Margaret Walker house. Mainly painting and sanding but did learn how to texturize ceilings. Old lady brigade take 2. Virginia and Indiana teams of volunteers. A lot of standing around. Interesting conversation with Janet about teaching. She told me about her nervous breakdown/battle w/depression through ten years of teaching high school French. I talked about my classroom experience and ended up telling her way more than I wanted to. She just seemed like a good listening ear at the time. Sweet woman. And we all know how women tend to flock in my direction. Is it because I am really them in my body? Do I really act like a 45-50-year old woman? I should hope not, but you really never know. I don't relate well with may people, much less people my age. But it seems as though the older women love me as a volunteer. I wonder why that is?

I couldn't have said it better myself. Who is your special person? Or maybe you are lucky enough to have more than one? I'm working on this myself, but one day I will have that person that makes me look forward to tomorrow too!

I'm starting Monday off at work this morning, which means I have about 5 hours to myself while the ladies are at their day program. I'm using them wisely. So far this morning I have completed my University of West Georgia graduate school application. Still have to request scores, transcripts, and write my essay, but I'm very proud of my motivation this morning. I had an excellent weekend, and met a member of Class XII, Red 5 out of Charleston and enjoyed comparing notes on our experiences and saying goodbye to a friend as she starts a new chapter in her life. I also signed up for a certified nursing assistant training course so that I can add to my skill set and make myself even more marketable in the group home market and maybe move into healthcare in general eventually...the options are endless!!!
