- Do you miss teaching?
- What do you do with all of your free time?
- Have you had a difficult time adjusting to retirement?
- No - not for a moment. 30 years was long enough.
- What free time?
- Repeat answer number one.
I must say that this blog has been partly responsible for my answers. Many of the retirees that I know have said that they readily lose track of what day of the week it is. I won't say that this never happens to me, but rarely. Because I have followed a Saturday/Wednesday posting for my blog, I feel as though I'm always checking my calender. Also - it has become a sort of digital journal for me, tracking the days and weeks and events and circumstances of my life. What started as a very nervous venture on my part is now part of my routine, and it has helped me navigate this first year of retirement with a rudder firmly in my hand. Actually - I'd suggest it as a means of easing into retirement if someone is a bit uncertain of how to proceed!
Anyhow - here I am - a year later, older (wiser?), and ready to head into year #2! Thank you for following along on my journey and may the upcoming year bring us all as many new and wondrous adventures, celebrations and recipes!!!!
