My husband & I returned to our jobs as assistant managers of a retirement community today. The retirement community is a three story building that truly looks like an upsale hotel. We offer senior citizens a choice of apartments: Studio, 1 bedroom or 2 bedroom - all with private bathrooms. We are independent but we do have three meals a day, transportation and a ton of fun activities.
The seniors are between the ages of 65 - about 99. Yes, we have people in their late ninties who are still independent. Seniors crack me up with their stories and funny little sayings. On the average day, we have to unlock atleast two or three doors because the resident forgot their key. Since we live on-site, we are here 24/7 for a straight week. (And then of course we have off a week so I am totally not complaining).
We wake up at 5am-5:30am when the alarm system needs turned off and then stay in the office atleast until 7:30pm and lock the front doors at 9pm every night. This makes for long days. It is even longer when you are getting over a cold and have not worked for three weeks (vacation).
But I am truly thankful for my job. And I am even more thankful to work with my husband. We work side by side all day, every day. You never know what the day holds.
So without further ado, here are the links. Thank you all for following me & reading my blog.
And for those who may not know, I have a giveaway going on that ends Monday.
