I was retired from teaching for one whole day before deciding to begin a second career as an adjunct professor at Barton College.  The mother of two “kids,” Emma Jane (20) and Dawson (18), and the wife of Kelly (since 1984!), I have written about my family for years and have stacks of journals to prove it.  Now that I am an empty-nester with a nine-month old black lab to talk to when I am not teaching, I have decided to begin a blog about living deliberately even during “old age.” 🙂
