Then the kids got older. I didn't need to be so hands on. They came to work and hung out in the afternoon after school or even all day during the summer. For a few years, work had a summer camp for kids that went on all summer. They had a blast.
Then the day came when they were both grown and living their lives in college, their own work, activities with friends. I was still at work and found myself in a five year countdown to retire. Oh, how I did not want to be working anymore. I sooo wanted the freedom to do nothing, something, everything.
That day has been here for two years now. I look back gratefully on the time I had at work. For the most part, I wouldn't change anything but OH! I am so glad now that . . .
Every Single Day is a Holiday.
