Today represents the end of nine years of my retirement from the workforce. Wow! Did that go by quickly! Today, though, represents the celebration of when it actually feels like I'm retired since these past years have been jam packed with too much work! It is so easy for someone like me to take on too much - volunteer work, gardening, household maintenance - everything in every way. Well, we just sold our house after a year on the market [Maintaining two houses was awful!]; I am coming to an end of much of my volunteer work; we are now in a lower maintenance home that I love; and I am now, for the first time, in a position to completely enjoy each and every day of my NEW retirement.
To celebrate the day I'm having lunch with a friend, going to a lecture on British history (London in the late 1800's), going to a movie ("The Glass Castle" based on Jeannette Walls book), then coming home to a new pet cat - Mau Mau - arriving all the way from Hong Kong!
So, I better get on with it! No time to spare!
