11/16 Thanksgiving at Arbor Village


One of the most successful events we do at Arbor Village… and probably the crazy busiest. I can not even explain how exhausting this event is with the seating charts, furniture movement, cleaning, serving, volunteer coordinating and the list can go on… It is exhausting to say the least but completely worth all the work. The residents are happy, the family members are happy… it is 100% worth it to see the look of satisfaction and love, and happiness on their faces. This year we served 230ish people at my building. The kitchen cooked 38 turkeys with only one casualty. All I can say is i am glad it is over!! I usually stay in bed the next day wallowing in pain but this year I got up early and went shopping with Jennifer. Last year I was 30 pounds heavier… those 30 pounds make a big difference… Now just 30 more to go 🙂

I am a conservative, slightly old-fashioned crazy girl. I love to read, write, sew, scrapbook, cook, bake, do crafts, enjoy nature, take my car off-roading, ride my bike, and just stay busy. I sometimes say I want a lazy day BUT I hate not having anything to do which means I frequently stretch myself too thin. I am the Life Enrichment Director at an assisted living facility. I love being around the elderly population. They are such amazing people who have so much to offer and teach. I also love the little guys too... I love being around kids, especially my nieces and nephews! In December of 2019 I was diagnosed with a Chiari Malformation that quite literally may have been a life changing diagnosis. I went from feeling like I was crazy. To maybe having answers.
