I am still on my journey and here are some of my life learnings to date.
Am I old or older? I am older and not afraid of aging. Are you middle age? As you age do you feel differently and more excepting? I hope so because if you do not have the money to change the process or a doctor to sit and tell him “you are needing therapy to get over it” Then you are in bad shape. Maybe there are body parts you do not like. When I saw mine change, I must admit there was some shocks.
I am now employed since covid 19 five days a week in San Francisco as a substitute teacher in a non- profit organization since March 20, 2019. The 6-8 hours vary with assignment.
MIDGETTS’ READING ROOM is making me happy. Remember I am extrovert.
I question what does retirement mean to me, what lifestyle will I take on? To date, writing, writing and more writing. Yes! I will have brunch dates with my buds. Also take mini vacations with my family, do e-mails to my friends and enjoy my life as a human being who loves life.
In the morning I do a good stretch when I awaken. Then 20 feet lifts. My goal is 25 in 6 months. I only get a chance to walk on weekends or when I am not working.
Breakfast is always first on the agenda: Oatmeal. Although it has a large amount of protein, I guess one could say I OD on protein because I also use 2 tablespoons of flax which also has protein. I top the oatmeal with a variety of cut up fruits. Raisins of some form of berries. Lunch I usually eat at the sites. So, I eat exceptionally light dinners with a glass of red wine.
To date this is how the journey is moving and I do not see any major changes soon. Why? because I feel as though I have lived a great life and now doing what I enjoy which is all that I named above. So apart from the above here are the following activities that gives me pleasure. Reading: Patterson, Ms. Steele, Dr Ruth K Westheimer, Female ejaculation THE G-SPOT, Deborah Sundahl. 5 Love Languages, E. Lynn Harris, The first 100 years the Delaney sisters. Dr. Phill, Zane, the sex chronicles, Gail Sheehy, Mary B. Morrison, Joel Osteen, Rhys Bowen, The New Yorker, Writers Digest. Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome by Dr. Joy DeGruy, Brenda Jackson, Perry Mason to name a few.
I rarely watch television and when I do it is ION or the oldies. Free movies on my computer occasionally on the weekend. I listen to KBLX at 06:00. Then KGO.SF the talk show when I returned from work or Saturday or Sunday morning. Prior to the Pandemic, although I always loved my living space the following are my outdoor special times with myself or friends. The movies almost every Sunday and ate at my favorite restaurants later. That was my alone time. Theatre and attend any new show that came to town. I went to my favorite coffee shop across the street sometimes during the week. After living in my space for 29 years I knew everyone in the coffee shop. That was where I did my writing. Some shopping sprees in San Francisco or short trips to Los Angeles with my son. One of my favorite spaces to shop and eat. Staying at a hotel is always a favorite. I had two best friends whom I would visit. The following I did with friends. Theatre, restaurants,
This is about you.

In psychology today’s survey the following reasons were given for friendships ending, cooling off, or otherwise shifting.

One of us got married, my friend became involved with a married man. Political views were different. One of us became much richer and a friend borrowed money from me and didn’t repay me
Parenting: What does this word mean to you? Do you want children? Babysitting issues? Co parent? Single parenting? As a human being does that mean you are supposed to have children. Does society dictate your thought about the issue?
Relationships. What kind of relationship do you have? An intimate one, partner, domineering, loving, Do I love to be love? Am I romantic? What qualities do I need to have to be in a relationship?
Sensuality/Sexuality: Being touched in a sexual manner can be enticing and lead to “fun” Wherever you want it to be. Can you still get your groove on? Why not? Can you ask for what you want?
Aging: Aging will not be a depressing topic in the reading room but a process. I am 85 and I’m not going downhill. My journey has been fun, no not all the time but I made sure I was not going to leave here when it was my time to have a ball. This anti-aging “stuff” that you hear on tv is a bunch of bull. We all will transition so read helpful information.
Erotic stories to get your grove on. Some will be continued in episodes or the full story.
New York Flavor:
The phone rings. I am in the kitchen skinning and boning chicken for dinner. I stop what I am doing and wash my hands. Put the phone to my ear. A familiar voice says, “How are you doing?” “Missing you, my honey.” …………continued in episodes.
I call my skirt “the pickings.” Get a pattern for a wrap around skirt that has pockets. Do not sew the pockets closed, leave the holes vacant. Because you will not be wearing panties, use colors that make you feel sexy and material that is soft to your skin and his touch…………Continue in episodes.
