I can't think of anywhere to volunteer in my small rural area on a saturday night. Thanks for the suggestion though. Me and puppy hanging out I guess.

Hey Josie,

it's good you have Rudi with you. I am looking for somewhere to volunteer myself.

Could you go to the nursing home and sit with some of them before they turn in? Or an assisted living place? Then you can give them something to look forward too as well? Or maybe offer to babysit for someone? Its hard. Since Z's here my options are even further limited on what I can do and most weekends we sit at home alone.

All good suggestions Katie but nursing home residents typically are old and therefore dying, at this raw stage of my life, I can't become attached to people that will die on me also. Maybe some day, but not today. Thanks for caring, love, Josie

Hey Josie,

no, we understand. You are not in the right place for that right now but maybe something will come up for you that you'd feel able to do.

Love

Promise

Understand that. Have you checked meetup.com for anything in your area?

I had never heard of that, just looked and upcoming stuff was photography, atheists or overnight backpacking trip. but put it on favorites for future reference. thanks Katie as even my therapist keeps drilling into me, stay busy, stay busy! Give Z a kiss from me and Rudi. Josie
