The day after Ted's big retirement party!
Good morning! The last few weeks have seen me caught up in all the planning and prep for my dear Ted's party. Ted has had a banner few months. His Red Soxs are World Champions, His Patriots are undefeated, His Celtics are the best record in Basketball, He celebrated his 60th year, his military pension is now payable and he's retired officially from his full time job! I'll be posting pictures of his party as soon as I get some. He was so honored at his party. 172 guests, sit down dinner, band and videographer. Needless to say he was overwhelmed. I am very proud of my husband. He is a loving, kind and compasionate man that I feel truely inspired by. He supports all my artistic endeavors and thinks I am worth more than I can imagine. So today my only thought is about how very lucky I am - oh and of course how jealous I am - he retired but I still have over seven years to work. Oh well, the older you get the faster time seems to fly - and we all know - I'm not getting any younger...LOL.
- I am a mother and a grandmother. I was married to my best friend, Ted for over 17 years. I am now a widow - but have many wonderful memories. I am an incredibly proud parent and grand parent. I am very blessed. I live with five frisky cats, one extra large swim-e fish aptly named - Fish. Fish is a very old member of the family too, like over 18 years. There is also a five year old crazy dog named Wolowitz in residence - kind of in the middle of nowhere - but I kinda like it that way too. I worked for a tax department which I don't find at all interesting or full filling and just a blur in my mind now. My main time soaking love, outside of the family and friends that are very dear to me; is creating and making artfully crafted objects that warm people's hearts and tickle their souls. Who could ask for more than that?
