My DH retired on January 3rd. So we are now in a new phase of life. We still have to get up really early since DD2 has to catch a 6:36 bus to school. So rather than an alarm at 5:30, I get to wake up to one at 5:45. DH is now my exercise partner and we are planning on going to the gym 5 days a week. Tomorrow he gets set up on the weight machines. So we will go to the gym around 9:30. I will do 30 minutes of cardio and an hour of yoga. He will do his cardio and get set up on the machines. Then we will get cleaned up and go to lunch with my DD1 who has worked her last day as a nanny today and will start her new job as assistant director at a tutoring center on Monday. After a year of makeshift jobs she has a real 40 hour a week job.
DH and I have slowly been undecorating the house. The tree came down today. We still have the outdoor lights to get down and the windows in the sun room are still swagged with greenery. We should have it all down by this weekend. We also have overnight guests this weekend so I have two company meals to fix. It is kind of funny having no real reason to have firm deadlines for when stuff has to be done. We will just take it one day at a time.
