A is About Me and B is Being Real: A To Z Challenge

I haven't joined a Blog Challenge in a loooong time but this one sounds fun, so I'm in.  Every day in April, except Sundays, we write.  We can write about anything.  The only "rule" is the topics have to start with the letters of the alphabet starting with A. 

A.  About Me.  Writing about me is always a little uncomfortable.  Don't you think so?  I mean, who really cares what I had for breakfast or what I did all day today.  But, just so you'll know who you're talking to, here goes. 

I am retired!  Yay!  Freedom!  I was a teacher for 30 years in a public high school, several actually.  I loved it.  Easy to say now.  I've somewhat forgotten what a hard job it was. Whew!  Seems like another lifetime.  Now I play at art....creating stuff and then trying to figure out what to do with it so I don't become an art hoarder.  You should see inside my closet.

I'm a Grandmother....that is so great, and a mom, daughter, sister, wife, and friend.  All fun things to be.  And that leads me to B.

B.  Being real is what my blog is about.  I don't make up stories...., just don't have the knack. But I love to write about real life, things that happen every day and the impact they have.  The more real we are, the more we see ourselves in others, or see others in ourselves.  We are all so much alike at our core...even with our superficial differences.  I think about that a lot.

Now that I'm in the "Challenge", I'll try making my posts a little more interesting than today's.  We'll see what happens.  Stay tuned for C.
