There are still 10 (or is it 11?) in the Bookclub, we were originally 15. When it was started, they only wanted a select few, in fact when an opening came years ago, we voted as to whether to accept. The idea was to keep it to those who worked together in the Administration Office who knew each other long and well, but as time went on a couple of select friends were admitted. Politics, you know. We have not had a new member in years. It was very cliquey in the beginning, which I didn't like, small groups within the larger group, but now everyone's mellowed, we recognize our common enemy "Time," and everyone's kinder.
I've been plagued with an auto immune disease that affects muscles, and it has flared the past few weeks and now includes parts of me it never did before. It has been a problem for me for the past few years, but just lately it's like gangbusters, and further limits my ability to do and be what I used to be. I not only miss my loved ones who are gone, I miss me. And I'm tired of being the oldest one at the holiday dinners, the kids are fine and often their friends stop by, but I want MY old peeps.
