On the Road Again….


As we get ready to close out the month my daughter and I are on the road again. She will participate in a Feis (Irish dance competition) today. Above is my daughter and one of her beginner Irish dance students. She loves teaching them and working with them. I hope she does well today. It is her first competition in four months after having some injuries.

Then tomorrow we will head back to our old hometown so that I can work for a week. I work for a Certified Public Accountant and have for the past 25 years. It has been nice because as he had work he would ask if I wanted it or if I was too busy. If I turned the work down I didn’t get put to the bottom of the list or anything it was just given to someone else. But, on the other hand he knows he can call me or text me at the last second and ask me to go fix or do something and I will make every effort to help him out. So, it has worked out perfectly.

But, as time has gone on he is getting near retirement and having some health concerns. I want to go back to help him out and give him a little sense of peace of mind during this time. So, this is a time of transition for me. I can see the writing on the wall not only with my daughter going to college but work too.

I am still working on what I want to be when I grow up and wonder where the next chapter of life is taking me.

    By mistake (you might call it old age and still learning computer savvy after all these years) I hit the poor rating instead of the excellent. Proud of Catherine, proud of Ann for helping out back home. Not a fan of salmon casserole, but two out of three isn’t enough for a poor rating Still love this easy way to stay in touch and wish all a happy Easter as we remember our dear Peg this week especially. PS Made the reuben sliders last week instead of the corned beef boiled dinner and fell in love. With left over corned beef made “Irish nachos” (put the corned beef on thick potato chips with shredded cheese and the corned beef). Hope my nutritionist cannot access this blog (we thought it would be Easter candy that would be my downfall)

      I would so rather eat meat and potatoes than candy any day! Thanks, Pat!

    It is interesting how what we did or learned once becomes again more meaning or room later again. I noticed that so many times in my life. A proof that nothing we ever do is in vain! Good luck for your daughter!

    What a great picture. How nice of you to help him out. Love the fluidness of life and how we don’t have to choose just one thing to do. ❤️
