I came to be a mother late, so as I considering social security, my daughter graduates from high school. I recently lost my job of 16 years due to the economic downturn, so I am wondering what I want to do when I grow up.&nbsp; I have too many books piled up to read...especially since it is hard to give myself the free time to just sit and read. I look forward to her going off to college, and at the same time anxious for her as she struggles with depression.&nbsp; I have lived in NYC for most of my life, it's a love/hate thing. I love the theater, arts, photography, but not the pretentiousness of the art world. I miss my best friend who died in 2009; she left a big hole in my heart.&nbsp; <br />
