January 2nd... first real day of retirement
Tuesday, January 02, 2018
I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year celebration. Hubby & myself did the usual... toast the new year about 9pm, hubby went into bedroom to read & I stayed up & watched the CNN New Year’s celebration with Anderson Cooper & Andy Cohen. I was very disappointed with that pairing. Not nearly as funny as when Kathy Griffin was with Anderson. I know, I know, Kathy Griffin is taboo right now but she was hilarious with Anderson in the past years.
So back to topic at hand, First day of retirement. It doesn’t feel real yet. It still feels like I’m on a holiday break from work. Hubby keeps saying that it will take a long time to really adjust.
I’m planning on taking some time to decide what direction I want this next chapter of my life to go. I’ve worked for the last 40+ years in a job that was really great some time and not so great the rest of the time. This next phase needs to be meaningful to me. And I won’t settle for anything less.
