Classes for Old People?

There should be classes for people to learn how to age gracefully.  They should include:

1. Proper diet to maintain bodily functions without getting FAT!
2.  How to keep in contact with friends and family without spending a fortune on long distance.  I know, cell phones.... but what if you can't afford the monthly fee for the cell phone?  Hmmm???
3.  What to do with yourself in the evenings when you can no longer drive at night.  Yes, night blindness has reared it's ugly head!  It's bad enough that I am terribly nearsighted, have cataracts forming, but not being able to ever drive to anything at night eliminates a lot of social opportunities.
4. Community education classes in the afternoons would be nice.
5.  More alternatives ...  not just sleeping, eating, and cleaning house.
6.  When arthritis limits a person's physical activity there should be a list of activities that you CAN do!
7.  I can sew.  And I DO sew for many people.  It's a small business that gives me some spending money, and I also sew for charity.  300 baby quilts for Project Linus so far, and every year, bags of receiving blankets, wash clothes, nightgowns and little jackets for Lutheran World Relief. It feels good to make things that children can use!
8.  And how do you make new friends when you can no longer get around as you would like????
9.  Facebook and email help a lot.

But I want more.....

I'm still hooked on facebook.  But it's fun to be able to 'catch up' on what friends are doing.
I don't get out much anymore, so facebook, email, and the telephone keep me connected with friends and family.
I'm still sewing for people.  Thank heavens there are a lot of people who never learned how to sew!  My little sewing account keeps growing!

Apparently facebook doesn't like me anymore... I can read other's posts, but cannot comment or post anything.
Just letting you know, folks.

So Sad...

My name is Sharon and I'm hooked on facebook. I admit it. I need help!

Don't get me wrong, I love facebook! I have been able to connect with SO many friends and family that I just don't get to see anymore. It's wonderful!

But, you knew there would be a 'but' right?, I spend TOO much time on facebook! I need to get busy with some other things. Like spring cleaning!!!!! Especially my sewing room! Lint, bits of thread, dirty windows and walls, shelves bulging with fabric shoved here and there, my desk piled with things that need to be filed, (yes, I have a filing cabinet right next to the desk). Let's face it folks, the rest of the house may look fine, but my sewing room is in sad shape!

I have neglected this blog because of facebook! I don't read other people's blogs as much as I used to...

My spring resolution is to #1- clean my sewing room thoroughly!

Check back later for an update if you dare...
