My kids are adults now, although my youngest, 19 will take any advantage a well stocked fridge, wifi, and a bed gives him. But really, I am free and clear, more than I had imagined just a year ago... Regarding work, I'm independent, have lots of free time, travel some, like being able to work on beaches a few times a year (and back in Hawaii too!) so it's pretty good as far as this work thing continues.
I like being back in the BA. Heavy music scene, and I just so happen to love all kinds of music. I seem to go out several times a month (or week) depending on who's playing where, or if I just want to get out. I wouldn't call myself a partier, but I like being able to have a good time.
