This life after retirement

Updated on January 12, 2015

Looking forward

For years I was the caregiver, sister, best friend, daughter you get the idea of my then but the life now is busy for Abuela Nana. Last year I was in Las Vegas and finished the year with being BAJA Malibu, Mexico. Traveling to the spot it the worst for me, love once I get there but going is a different thing, the pushing, rushing to get from place to place and some people can be rude. Okay about that now let’s get on to more interesting details.

New Construction

Many of the shots that you will see in this article come from my families home in Mexico. My brother John and his wife Delores have redone the home in Mexico from 2 bedrooms to 5 five bedrooms and it has been a major construction. Walls have been knocked out and new shapes are reappearing everywhere you look. In Mexico skilled labor is hard to find, many say they can but few are really skilled. So, once you have one you must pay for them and keep that crew working until the project is complete. My family was blessed to have found one that they could trust and keep.

Cleaning construction

Construction is construction no matter where you go. THE DIRT is everywhere and I mean on everything that I just helped to clean. O my goodness I working on the finish product because it’s like traveling. You are always moving something from one spot to the other in this kind of construction. My Family took two lots next to the main house and is now blending the construction to make is one big unit. It will be nice once finished but until then have DIRT will travel. Don’t’ think that I a working all of the time but we are all working in some form of the day to get things settled in the house for daily living.

On the first visit

This is the first of many trips to the BAJA but my first one was month for my son and his wife to get a break from MELODY (ME). I too need a rest for my body. You see this blogger was hit some seven years ago by a drunk driver and I am now suffering the from the accident. Oh too, I am awaiting my Social Security Disability to start some kind of normal income for me and to life a better life than I am currently have, after this kind of accident you life with pain as a normal in your life and are grateful to have that normal. So the grove of life is a little unbalanced from one angle but balanced in another part.

Change in August 2015

While I am talking about change for me In August 2015 will be the birth of my grandchild along with my son becoming a full Doctor of Chiropractic from Logan College, no short feet for my child he did his Bachelor of Science from Logan College and now his Doctor of Chiropractor degree which is the top of the ladder for him. He has done this thing right for marriage, career and now my grandchild all in the right order. I did something right? Right?

Back to construction at CASA BORDEAUX

On ward and upward to making the better change in the life of MELODY and working to be my best for me, I am bent not broken in many

So getting back to grove of life here at CASA BORDEAUX we have our crew back working on the house today. They have not been here for two weeks and we got a lot on the inside done now let’s get to the busy of finishing the house so I can have more space next time I visit. Selfishly, I know that is wrong but I am the baby of the family and your ride that one to the end until you are called on it. I know that I am an adult but in my circle the baby did most of the caring for our parents so she is still reaping the benefits, okay?

Thinking more about Cold

As I stated before that my view from where I am doing the blogging is beautiful. Today it is clear and the sun is out. Yesterday it was rainy but warm, I can’t complain since I live in Saint Charles, Missouri where the temp today is somewhere around 28 degrees for the high. So here we go on moving and changing my directions, again.

Nothing last forever

We are now thinking about my return home to Saint Charles, Missouri later in this month and I know that the COLD is awaiting my return to it. I sometimes like the change in the whether but the cold is something that is to the BONE. If you have never made friends with the cold and don't know what I am taking about, please visit my home state of Missouri in the classic months of December, January, February just know how this feels. So, I am returning next week with a lot of warmth in my body hoping to bring some of the warmth with me as well.
