I do very occasionally keep in touch w/ the people I worked with and we usually begin w/ how we are doing and eventually the conversation morphs into what has happened w/ people at the workplace and the changes there.
I used to work outside the home until approximately 16 years ago when i transferred to "working inside the home" an outside job. I still am friends with my old boss and an old coworker. We talk about life nowadays, not really about "the old times" We are great friends and it's nice staying in touch and continuing our friendship. I'm going to have breakfast with my old boss in the next few weeks.
Thanks for the opportunity.
Oh but this sounds like a wonderful book. My son would love this.
1. My earliest childhood memory: I am the oldest of five children. When mom was pregnant with child number three, she was in bed rest. At the time I didnt understand, other than by mom staying in bed she was protecting the baby. So they had a black woman come in while dad was gone. She cleaned house, and made it fun for us to join in. She took care of my brother and I. She was so patient and fun. She was on the chubby side, at least that was what I thought then. She loved to have us sit on her lap and she would tell the most memorable and wonderful stories. We obeyed her and gave her no trouble not only because that is what mom and dad said, but because without her saying anything about it, she commanded gently that we do obey. Now I can look back and see that my brother and I respected her for who she was inside. So it was easy to obey her and let her into our lives. I am now sixty and she is still a part of my life.

#1 Yes. I remember a cactus and desert landscape. I would have been 1 or younger to remember when we lived there.
1. I remember the swing we had in our front yard. I was probably about 4. I don't remember much before that--just a little about the house we lived in. That being said, sometimes I don't remember what happened yesterday! LOL
My parents divorce was the most challenging change I experienced.
We picked up and moved to another state leaving our home of many years, friends, familiar places etc behind. It was very challenging but has allowed us to spend time with our grandchildren now that wet can be closer.
2) I worked in one office for almost 15 years. While no longer there, I keep in touch with two co-workers from there. We get together several times a year for lunch or a shopping trip. Mostly we talk about our families. One of them still works in that office, so we talk about that work places some=)
I did work outside the home for several years before my first child was born. I have several of my co-workers as facebook friends, but I don't really spend time with them in person these days. We interact occasionally on social media which is better than nothing, I think, but my life is so different from what is was in those days, I feel like we don't have as much in common.

1. One of my earliest memories is sitting on a step between the kitchen and living room of my grandparents' farm house and singing along with my grandmother as she worked in her kitchen. She believed in 'singing while she worked' and I have tried to live by her philosophy!
