Here are my like things for today:
1. Retirement. I apologize to those that are not able to retire yet. I remember your pain. I retired from 50 years of working last summer. Truth be told, I wanted more time to enjoy life not just walk through it. I felt like a hamster in a wheel. Plus, it was time to let a younger person take on the responsibility of that position after my 19 years there. That's a freakin long time, people. sorry.
I love not setting the alarm!!!!! I can take my time in the morning. I'm a morning person so this is such a treat to start my day slowly. My joints are thanking me and behaving so far. Don't get me wrong- I miss money and I am constantly weighing pros and cons of any purchase. My brother and I live a very simple life which helps control the budget. The freedom I feel not answering to a boss is PRICELESS. If you can swing it at all, do it.
2. Volunteer for Friendship program at my grandson's public elementary school. Students with and without special needs are paired up for fun activities throughout the school year. 5th-8th grade volunteer students who demonstrate leadership skills with good grades are recommended by teachers to the volunteer program. The kids are Best Friends Forever. For my grandson who is a special needs student, his friend Charlie provides a friendship that is so sweet to watch. Charlie has learned and watched my grandson grow and progress in school in areas Charlie would not otherwise been aware of. Win Win for everyone.
3. Old Lady's day at Joann's. Ok, that's so inappropriate a title, but that's how I think of it. It';s not every first Wednesday of the month, but this year we have had 3! Check your local Joann's a few days before.
What great marketing!
