Young senior citizen with decades of experience working in both small business and State government. Married, three grown sons, two daughters in law, and four grandkids (the BEST part of life)!
I work in Human Resources in the State of Minnesota government, executive branch. I've worked for the State over 23 years, and appreciate the employee benefits. However, my job is being phased out, so I am probably going to be laid-off in the next few months. The one trend I've noticed over the last few years, is that many older, long-term employees have been laid off. I have only a partial college education (no degree earned), and at my age finding another job with similar earning potential and benefits is unlikely.
I love dogs and cats, crafts - especially paper-crafts, helping people, and our pastor's sermons. Really awesome sermons - bible-based, educational, and very interesting. My mother is almost 84, and is moving into an assisted living apartment this week. My husband is disabled due to spinal degeneration and mental health issues. One son (thirty-something) lives with us, works part-time and spends his free-time gaming. We also have our teenage granddaughter living in our home. One English Springer Spaniel dog and one tortoiseshell calico cat share the home, too. It's a three-bedroom, two-bathroom mobile home that we own, and we rent the lot in a nice manufactured housing community.
