Cities & Towns > I AM Mostly Present

I AM Mostly Present

Just always here and never here if you know what I mean. I am so tired of just the four of us, me, Ted, Jose and Nadine being shut up together with little relief in sight. We keep sighing over the cruise ads because a week or two of total variety would help a lot. The last relief we had was when the grand kids visited over Christmas. It has been about 3 years since Laura ventured off to New York. About a year ago she said no more resturant jobs and no more bar tending. She was concentrating on fashion only. Since my daughter and I had to help support her it was rough. However I have to tell you that she has a 30 month contract with NBC to dress their made for tv movie stars. She had turned down wardrobe before but now she is glad to get it and so are her mother and I. She was home for Christmas, bringing her cat who totally hated the trip. Laura has several advantages, one being a degree in fashion design and the other is a New York Driver's license which mean she can drive to Nordstroms and pick up clothing. The other one is that she is beautiful with creamy white skin contrasting with her black hair and black eyes. But New York eats up girls who are beautiful so I am not making a point of that. I thought you might like to know this. Laura is one of my sweetest grand daughters and I wish they would all alight a lot closer geographically. However I would not wish to clip their wings. Fly free little girls and do what I did not dare.

Oh yes. The things I would do differently if I were young again!!!! So many opportunities.
Sounds like she is on a good track.

I admire her courage and determination. I went to a design show held at O.S. U and saw some of her work before she left.

It's interesting to hear about the variety of careers your grandchildren have chosen. And they sound really gifted.

So far, an engineer, a teacher and a designer. I am proud of all their choices. Sara is the oldest and started off as a band director but could not sacrifice so much time at night and be a mommy too. She hopes to teach music as soon as there is a vacancy. Ashley is pursuing a nursing degree,

They're all fortunate to have you as their grandmother, just as we're all fortunate to have you as our friend.

Thank you Laura. We had such a good time when we visited you and Gary and
would welcome another visit from you. One of the side benefits our Laura has gotten from her degree is great sewing skills.
