I spend my days crafting, tending to my 3 dogs, 8 chickens and about 30-40 ducks that expect me to feed them promptly at 7:15 am. You can say I don’t sit still well (my husband keeps reminding me I’m retired because I work harder now than I did when I was working) and I have been a volunteer EMT, Reserve Police officer and am soon returning to school to get my masters in Clinical Vocational Rehabilitation, hoping to volunteer with a local shelter or veteran’s group to help others get back on their feet after hard times.
