I enjoy going to work not necessarily for the work part, but talking to people in the mid-west and east coast is always interesting but also talking to my co-workers
I'm always amazed at how different people's background is or where they come from. Me and 3 other nurses were talking about working nights and 2 out of 3 had worked nights most of their 40 year nursing span! Working nights for 40 years! that puts my pathetic year in a different light. I asked how they raised kids when they had to sleep during the day. Both of them responded that that was the easy part. Wow! I can't imagine living on my toddlers 2 hour nap as my night time rest.
We also talked about how long we want to live. 1 of the nurses said one of her aunts had lived to be 100 and how she didn't want to live that long. My thought is I would want to live to be 100 if my dear husband was with me but having to loose him and then start over is to overwhelming...of course there is God's grace but still.. very sad.
I have talked to a gentlemen who had been married over 70 years!!! He and his wife where both in their mid 90's. Now that would be amazing
