Day One

I know you all know that Charles Dederich quote, 'Today is the first day of the rest of your life'.

Today was my first day of retirement.  So guess what I did?  I went to the office!!

I didn't really want to drive downtown on Friday because it was hot, the traffic was going to be bad, and that was the first day of Summerfest so there were bound to be a lot of people going downtown.  I let the office know that I would be turning in my keys and my computer on Monday.

I was only there for about 15 minutes, but you know that one of those smart aleck guys would have to say "hey, you didn't retire after all, did you?"

Ha ha.  Yes I did, here's my junk, I'm outta here!!

Job two was to go get my hair cut.  That took about an hour, then home.

Job three?

There was no job three!  Although I did have to make the tweeny some lunch, and clear up some papers that were no longer needed from around the desk upstairs.

Ahhhh… retirement is fun.  No deadlines, no worries, right?  But someone said to me, you know when you're retired, there's no such thing as a day off!

Tomorrow I have to work at the quilt shop, and Thursday I'm having lunch with some friends.  In between there is the holiday, and on Friday there's a family wedding so I need a card and a gift.

Ah, well, tomorrow is another day...

Rock on...
