No Work Update :-)
So.....is retirement cracked up to be what they say it is? I'm not really sure what "they" say, but for me the first week has been wonderful. I've certainly been busy, that's for sure. I've got lots to do. I'm working on the house. The first order of business is to get the lawn back in shape and plant my garden. It's still on the chilly side here, which is odd, so I may have to wait a bit longer for the flower garden. Hub and I used to plant loads of vegetables at one point...but I'm not going to do that...I'm trying to keep things simple. I've been visiting Mom a lot, she finally perked up again so that's a load off mind. My retirement party is this Friday and I've got a few lunch dates with those who can't make that party. I'm also still doing paper work to straighten out a few things. That's taking a bit longer than I thought, but I'm trudging away. All in all, it's a good feeling. I feel a lot more relaxed. I've been getting plenty of exercise too. (After all, I've got to look good in that bikini I'll be donning (or not) when I get to Tahiti ;-)
I haven't been visiting all that many blogs lately but I pop in to everyone now and then. I don't keep my computer on all day like when I was at work, so I try to catch up a bit while I'm on here.
Oh and on a sadder note, one of my friend's husband died over the weekend. I just can't believe it. What a weird feeling that is, that we're both widows I mean. I'm going to be there when she crashes...I've got some experience now. So very sad, isn't it?
See y'all tomorrow.
