When I was young, I wanted to be author.  When I was serving in my first church, I  was still dreaming of writing a book.  I read once that a minister writes the equivalent of a book every year between sermons and various other things we write.  I was thinking about that today as I was writing newsletter articles.  I used to lament having to write a 5 page double spaced paper in college.  Today I wrote over 5 pages of single spaced articles for the newsletter.  I finished those, and went back to working on the sermon for Sunday. 

It's not quite the way I envisioned being a writer, but I definitely do a great deal of writing.  I'm exceedingly grateful that I'm no longer writing on the manual computer I used in college.  Yes, I'm that old. 

Daughter comes home tomorrow, and will be with me through Sunday.  She's quite excited about it.  I'm pleased, because I will know she is safe while she is with me.  Last night she had a cold supper.  They can't seem to figure out how to get her her meds and serve her a hot meal.  It's beyond their capacity to plan.  She said she took it into the kitchen and stuck it in the microwave.  I do believe she's smarter than some of the staff.

Yes, your DD is probably smarter than some of the staff. I blame low pay and low prestige of certain kinds of "caregiving" jobs.
