Loving Retirement

The Three Musketeers ~ Defying scurvy cross-country

Well Heavens to Murgatroid!
Who would ever think there is so much to do in retirement?!
Not that it's anything in particular. Just stuff.

There's so much time in the day that I stay in bed forever & languish....

REST! ahhhhhh. So under-rated. So wonderful! So easy & peaceful.

There's time to get the bills written & sent before it's too late & I'm charged for being tardy.

There's time to go to meetings.
And Dr.'s.
And the gym.
And to sit in bed & get on FB for hours.

There's time to eat out-
brunch & then dinner later if we want.
Time to meet old friends for lunch...

Went to a Club EWR (Newark Airport Flight Attendants) luncheon where they surprised me with Retirement balloons, a HUGE congratulations card with a gillion signatures & well wishes (SO COOL!) & a large sheet cake with 'Congratulations Kathy, have a Wonderful Retirement!' It was so sweet & fun. I felt SO happy!

Then a few weeks later met my buddy-bidders of over 3 decade
s (Pam & Marilyn - 'Parilyn') for brunch in The City with my Honey! They brought retirement balloons & beautiful pink roses! It was WONDERFUL to see them again, I miss them both SO damn much!
We laughed for 3 hrs solid & said can you believe we are all actually retired now ????

They retired 2 yrs before me at 60. I was SO depressed I couldn't afford it & a bit resentful towards D for not paying her bills so I could have retired with them. I finally got on anti-depressants last year, & felt better, less bitter & less pissy.

Anyway, I thought there would be nothing to do once one retires, but I'm shocked to find out there is even more... not that I'm doing much of it... the days seem to run out before I even think about starting to accomplish ANY chore. Not that I'm worried. I feel like I've accomplished enough for awhile...


Oh! Soaps are on.
Gotta go languish!

Hah! Life is SWEET!
