I'm still not used to waking up and laying there realizing that I didn't have anywhere to go. Well, that would depend on my To Do list, but I had no job to report to. Every day is Saturday. I guess I'll get used to it one day.
Back to that To Do list. Good grief...I don't know how I ever did things when I had to work. Every evening I update the list, moving the things that I didn't get done that day to the list for the next day. I must admit a great bit of the things on my list have to do with selling on eBay (which is wonderful and great fun) and trying to start a bathroom renovation. Finding a reliable contractor, one who will communicate with you and will do it for a reasonable price is not easy. And all that I've read about people getting fleeced has made me really cautious. I'm sure I'll find someone...I already have the piece of furniture that will be the vanity base, have ordered the granite top, have bought the sink and faucet and I have a gorgeous mirror that I bought in Honduras that will replace the awful wall-to-wall mirror there now. Pictures to follow when it's all done.
So for any of you out there wondering just what us retirees do with ourselves once we no longer have to report to work...we still work but for ourselves!!
I love it. I love that every day is now Saturday. But I do depend on others to tell me which day of the week it is!
