I miss old people.

 I do! Because of the recent knee surgery I have been out of work (home care and hospice). The last few days, my bestie Vayla has been doing her clinicals for her CNA and she has come home with some of the funniest stories about Nel Talley that we love so much.  I am so jealous. I can't tell you how hard they make me laugh and how much I love seeing them every day. So it is not the most glamorous work, and most people you ask hate it, but I would take spending time with even the grumpiest old people every day just to make em' crack a smile with a good dose of humor and teasing. Here are some I adore:

I am excited because for Service Council next week we are putting on our "Senior Ball" where you bring an 65+ date. What is awesome is that not only do you have a great time getting to know some real winners, but you get a free ticket to disney land! If you are going to be in the St. George area and want to come register here where it says "young at heart". It is next thursday the 18th from 6-8 at Dixie State College. Oh I can't wait! My cute papa gould is most likely coming to be my date:
Cute little Hawaiian Grandpa. Anyway, I will be so happy to hopefully start working soon! Wish I could tell you about how awesome my patients are...sorry, Hippa for ya.

More to come.

P.S. Tomorrow I get auctioned off as a date to raise money for Haiti with a bunch of other unlucky souls. I am all about raising money, trust me, but this is a little nerve racking. Hopefully I will get sold for at least a dollar. Wish me luck.

P.P.S. For those who have tried to ask me how my knee surgery went and are wondering...went real good! Much less than we thought it would be. Third time's a charm! Thanks for all your prayers and thoughts.

Haha! I love old people. I work at a Cancer Centre, so alot of my patients are older, and I've been called a "fiesty little firecracker" I've learned to dance in the hallways(creating quite the entertainment for the rest of the patients.) They just say the funniest things EVER!

I'm glad your surgery went well:)
