Some Stuff


Sunshiny day here. So I took another day off. I have 7 more working days to go!!!! I do have to admit that as much as I'm looking forward to retirement, it's still a little scary. The "routine" has been with me for so long. But I'm guessing that feeling will leave rather quickly once I get into another "routine". And I sure have lots of routines planned. Lemme see....gotta get to Tahiti one day....renovate the house, one little area at a time......visit friends who have moved away.....it'd be fun to take a blogging tour across the country and meet y'all.........I have to get to Yellowstone Park someday to spread some of hub's ashes (that was his all time favorite place)......go to the beach every day.......gym. One thing I'm not going to be doing is finding another job. I'd love to do some volunteer work and give back some of what the world has given me. I'll continue with my grief therapy. It's what I need most right now. So.....if anyone is going to be in NYC on April 11, let me know....that's the day of my retirement luncheon and you're all invited!!!

Peace

You will love retirement Odat. I'm so busy now that I wonder how I had time to work. Just do all those things you always wanted to do. I'm in California, but if I was near NYC, I'd show up for your retirement party. Big hug honey. :)

I'm not normally an envious person, but I just spent another day with corporate types- and I envy your upcoming release from bondage!

Odat, you have totally earned your days retirement (but employment only, not of life). Happily, you have plenty of plans to do great things. Excellent!
