Now, on rare occasions, I may have to press a shirt or a pair of slacks for a dressier occasion. The rest of the time, it's all wash and wear.

Andy, you are so lucky that you do not have to iron much these days

I have to iron all Steve's office work shirts and slacks...luckily only 4 of them though as on Fridays they have casual day at the office YAY

what is it about running a hospice that appeals to you, pf?

It's difficult to say. It's the last thing I can ever do for some people, the vulnerable dying need care that sees past the person they were and provide the comfort they need at this time in their life. I'm also hoping that when it's my time the good that I have done will be returned to me in kind and loving hands. No one, no matter who they were, deserves to die alone.

That is absolutelty beautiful. It just shows everyone what a wonderful person you really are. My sister lived with us the last year of her life with in home hospice care. I cannot say enough good about the hospice workers that help attend to her care. It is the most selfless, caring & challenging job a person could ever have in my opinion.

Dh got a wild hair & pulled all of the clothes out of my closet. Went through all of them, good feeling. ZGot rid of alot of pants & shirts that are way to big on me. Feels great! There were a few I wanted to keep just because I liked them so much even though they were to big but dh said absolutely not, they are all going to good will.

A long, long time ago, when DH was in the Navy, he asked me to iron his clothes and they had to be done a particular way. I said, I'm not in the Navy, dude. Iron your own clothes. And that's the way it's been for 28 years heehee
