Older grad student looking for a place to write

I am an older grad student, returning to US in Aug 2020 to write my dissertation. I have been living and collecting data in Bangladesh for the last 2 years and will be ready to come home. I am an experienced homeowner and animal/garden lover. It is just my partner and me who need a place to stay while we write as my children are all grown. If you are looking for a quiet couple to keep an eye on your place while we read and write, we are your pair!

I’m an older grad student- having returned to grad school after 28 yrs working as a nurse and midwife. I started a small NGO (Goodbirth Network), sold my house, and went to Boston University to get my Dr in Public Health. I’ve been in Bangladesh doing my research and collecting data. I’m now looking to come back to the New England area and write up my dissertation. I love reading, travel, cooking and gardening. I’ve had cats, dogs, chickens and bees and love animals. My kids are all grown so it is just my partner (a public health toxicologist, also writing) and myself who need a place to stay. Thank you for considering us!
