Life at 60 . . . looking at life on the slow side
I grew up in Eastern North Dakota, and went to college at UND. I am currently teaching as a special education resource teacher in Minneapolis. I am married to a great second husband, who puts up with so much. I have one married son who is struggling to make a living in Minneapolis. He and his wife have 2 sons, ages 2 and 3, which is totally insanity, but also so much fun. I also have a newly married stepdaughter, who with her husband, is the proud 'parent' of a new puppy, 2 or 3 cats, a hamster, a college roommate still living in the spare room, and who knows what else they acquired in the last month.

I began thinking about blogging while e-mailing parenting advice to my daughter-in-law. Isn't that the typical Grandma/Mother-in-law? She graciously thanks me for all advice, but is also free to disregard anything I say.

I am also the lucky daughter of a very plucky and determined 96 year old mother.

Heading back home to North Dakota.

   How long do you need to live somewhere else before you do not think you are going home when you get on the interstate going north?

  How many people drive by Alexandria and automatically check their gas level, and ask themselves, is it going to be Alexandria for lunch, Fergus Falls, or will we make it to the intersection of West Acres and Interstate 29 for lunch?   Decisions of the road.   If we have to stop for gas, then Alexandria has a good Perkins.    We are driving the SUV, so this could be where we go.   I would rather stop in Fergus, because then over half the trip is over.

  Fargo is the best Perkins stop because I can call cousins, they meet us for coffee at Perkins, then we are almost home when we get in the car.   Only a little over an hour to Hwy 15!!!
