:bigwave:It's been a long time since I've stopped by. I am proud to say that my typing skills have improved a great deal since the last time I posted. I think that was probably about a year ago already. I have missed everyone here, and have wrestled with feelings of inadequacy. I won't bore ya'll with the long version, but it's been a long fight both for my rehab, and for life in general. I still have some really bad problems with my memory, and stumble a lot with words especially when I'm caught off guard or am stressed. But, I have regained all my reading skills, my math skills are now horrible, they used to among my best. Now, I can barely keep my checkbook balanced. I'm living the life of the retired checking out the volunteer opportunities to see what suits.

Tomorrow's project is to fill out an application for a Fellowship Program offered through a local church conference- The Academy For Leadership Excellence. I figure this is a two year program that will keep me busy for awhile, and I should be able to put some of my past supervisory skills to use.

I am going to try to visit more often. I can't say that I am very current on what's going on in the ISO world, but I've still got some common sense. Besides that, I can learn a lot from everyone, and get caught up on what's going on. I truly do miss my job....I guess the one thing I can gloat about is I heard they had to hire four people to do the job I did by myself! Guess maybe they should have listened to me when I said I needed help?:lmao:

Bye for now. Take care!

Keep pluggin' Steel.

It's always a good day when you can see the grass LEAVES instead of the ROOTS.

For inspiration, look to my neighbor, the junior senator from Illinois, Mark Kirk. He just made his first speech in the Senate since his stroke more than a year ago.
