wings and things


on October 13, 2014

There are several reasons that I have become somewhat disconnected from the blogosphere lately:

1. I have made Anthony’s nursing home room a simulation of our home;
2. I’ve become addicted to the Danish series, The Killing;
3. I’m preoccupied with crafting a present for my mother’s soon-to-be 80th birthday;
4. I have given up on trying to tempt Ming with my ox-tail stew;
5. My volunteering in the dementia ward on the weekends is a gift to me because, years ago, when I worked as a nurse in various nursing homes, there was never any time to actually chat with patients; now it is actually something that is scheduled!

So, I have decided to go for a job at the nursing home in the hope that my so-far volunteering reputation will help.

    Good luck Jules xoxo

  6. Hope you get a job there… nursing homes need more people like you who care… Keep in touch though once in a while… I know you’ll have your priorities … Diane

    Yeah, gotta love The Killing. Not enough seasons if you ask me… xoxoxoxo

    fantastic idea, jules )

  16. tootlepedal says:

    The Killing is well worth becoming addicted to.

  17. artfulanxiety says:

    Good luck!

    i love all the Danish series that have been on TV, Julie – they are definitely addictive. I find the very best is always on late at night though.

    Good luck with your application to work permanently again. Nursing is definitely a vocation that is yours and I have no doubt your volunteering will help. Doing the things we love in life is precious and definitely worth pursuing and what better way to connect with Anthony than to work in his place of residence. In this way, you can be there for not only him, but all the other residents who need such care.

    The Blogasphere fills a gap when we need it, but we can come to depend on it too much instead of living in the real world around us. Vicki xo

  19. I hope you can get a job at the nursing home, I wish I was good at crafts but I am not so I don’t do any.

  20. so happy you have found a way for you to do something that gives you joy and reward! i admire your ability to have an open mind to new possibilities.

    sending love and hugs to you my friend

  23. lensgirl53 says:

    I would hire you on the spot!! You are a gift to them!

    This is exciting news, Julie. When will you know?
    BTW, we got hooked on The Killing too. It was very good!
