2019 Life-long Learning: Learning to Relax

    I find more each day just how retired I am.  I think back to when I worked, and sometimes fell in bed at midnight exhausted, I realize just how happy I am that I don’t have to anymore.  I have to admit, I still wake up in a sweat dreaming that I’ve started a new job and can’t find anything or do anything right.  Then I wake up and think what is wrong with you?  Can you not let go of stress?

February is my birthday month.  It is also my daughter’s birthday month and we got together yesterday and treated ourselves to a massage with a woman who takes good care of her often.  It was wonderful! 

Today I met a friend for lunch to celebrate my birthday and the beginning of a new adventure for her.  She has a new job coming up and will be moving away.  We met at a little Italian place and sat and talked for two hours.  I know they thought we would never leave.  We ate too much and talked forever and had a great time. Then I came home and had a nap.  That is what you do when you eat too much! I don’t think I’ll want supper.

I could never do such things when I was working.  I had more disposable cash, but I didn’t have time to spend it – at least on me. But that is what birthdays, weekends, and friends are for.

I need to do laundry and the dishes.  I will heat up some soup that is in the frig for my husband’s dinner. Suddenly I realized I had still not written my blog.  It is a lazy weekend.  A weekend from what, I really don’t know.  I love being retired.

I should be writing.

How was your weekend and what did you accomplish?
