Funny that since I retired people assume I have nothing to do. I did give up timesheets, and measured coffeebreaks, office emails, and pressure of deadlines and so on.
I still have a day job in a sense. I still have my responsibilities at home and in fact now that I have no day job I am glad to say I have increased those to lessen my wife’s load. I am hoping she will benefit from my retirement and maybe have more time for herself to enjoy. As a supervisor my wife is pretty easy going, but I haven’t had my monthly performance review yet either!
The trouble with retirement is that you never get a day off.
I’m not complaining about no days off because unless you are retired you don’t get it; I didn’t until I was retired.
I still procrastinate, and that’s funny because I thought before I was retired that retirement would mean I would finally be top notch efficient and organized. Not yet!
I like it, retirement that is, and it feels nice to not have to worry about vacation days, and your time is certainly more flexible.
I certainly did give up my day job, but life still feels full but now I can’t account for where the time goes. (head scratch)
Now something that would be nice, I would like to win the lottery, I don’t know what that is like; that’s for sure. But I say that half in jest, it is easy to read in the papers and magazines about the people who have millions and be envious but in truth I have much to grateful for, wonderful friends, wonderful family and much, much more.
* thank you for reading, love all the encouragement and likes I received lately. I’m grateful.
