But, it's not forever -- it's just for now.
I keep a running tab of all of the classes and webinars that I attend and listen to. I also keep a list of all of the classes and webinars that I present.

That is not counting webinars.
And, it's also not 62 different trips. Sometimes I am at a venue for an entire day or more, and there may be several presentations. All in all, they added up to 62.
And, I'm a bit tired.
After talking it over with Mr. Kerry, I decided to fulfill all of my commitments up through the end of June 2016. Then, I'm done for the year. There are actually still a couple of webinars, and a local presentation, plus one in Kentucky. Those presentations are completed, and I will revamp them leading up to the date. That won't take long.
So today, I gave my last presentation for awhile. It was at The Ohio Genealogical Society, which I love and live close to.
For the next six months, I am going to concentrate on me. I have unfinished projects that need to completed. Those are difficult to do when I'm in constant preparation and heading out the door.
I am also going to refresh some of the 30+ presentations that I have listed on my website, and work on the 9-10 I have in various phases of completion. They need some work, too.
Now, I'm not out of the picture. I will continue to be very active on Facebook, and listening to webinars and online learning any way that I can. I must do this, for I want to keep my mind active and learning for as long as I can.
I will come rolling back in 2017 stronger and rested up, for I have already booked well into that year, plus a couple into 2018.
Now, please don't worry about me. There is nothing wrong with me -- I am simply recharging myself. And, I'm grateful I am able to do this, for we still have Mr. Kerry's pension coming in. Last year alone, I doubled our income.
So, as of today, I'm putting my feet up, not wondering which city I'm waking up in, eating food from my own kitchen, and getting ready to do some fixing-up around here. It needs it.
I'll be back! I promise!! And if a local society really needs a presentation, I can probably be talked into it. We'll see.
Love to you all...

After he died, I pulled all of the fishhooks out of it, cleaned it up, and glued a flower on it.
It's my very favorite hat!
