Today was my last day at work. I'm retired! I have been showered with lunches, gifts, hugs, a party - lots of love these past two weeks. The very same folks who have been called "thugs" and worse by some elected officials are in fact, the kindest, hardest working people in this state, and I'm proud to have worked with them.
This weekend my older son and his wife come to town for a wedding, and then two days after they leave, we follow them out to San Diego for the ceremonies surrounding him getting his doctorate. Our younger son is going too. Unfortunately his girlfriend can't go with us.
Lots of good things in our lives as we enter this new world.
My challenges related to health and weight loss will be reversed. Because I biked or walked to work, exercise was not a problem, but I didn't always eat well. Now I think I will do a better job paying attention to eating from hunger. But exercise could be a little more of a challenge. It's always something, right?
