Hi, I'm Kathy. I was widowed in Dec. 2010 and have made progress toward a satisfying life on my own, but would love to expand my friendships among singles who have experienced loss, and understand my turning point to embrace transformative change.
To meet new folks who are interested in moving forward into a happier life on a day to day basis.
Widowed last year after 42 yrs. of marriage.
In my 20's and 30's, very extroverted, in 40's and 50's, more cautious, and in 60's, mostly contemplative, but still love a belly laugh on a daily basis.
Good listener, compassionate, empathetic.
I enjoy interacting with graduate students, as I advise dissertating doctoral students in education. I teach online in a master's program in education, and I really enjoy helping the students grow. For hobbies, I like walking especially with company, swimming if the water is warm enough (Florida?) and on rainy days, I love board games, like Rummikub, Scrabble, Boggle.
This is the second outing and I can't wait to do more...no pressure, no drama, just nice people who are welcoming and warm.
How did the planning meeting go? Anything I can do to help?
Thank you Kathy, I am looking forward to enjoying this group, very much.
Kathy, it's not for lack of interest, but I can rarely make a weekend Meet up due to caring for my handicapped daughter [since my wife's passing, my daughter lives with another family during the week and I have her for most weekends]. During the 'school year' I'm generally booked M-W and every other Thursday nites. I can make Sunday, every other Thursday and many summer week nites.
I didn't put up a music video - Platon did.
Welcome to fishing chicks Kathy. Sorry about your loss, please do join us on future outings. I just started this meetup yesterday and will get working on planning other times. Hope to see you at one of the future dates.
and welcome aboard. Hope we can form a caring and interesting group.YES?
