That Forever Friday Feeling

Retirement

When I left my full-time job at the end of July, I looked forward to having more time and focus to devote to blogging. I decided to give myself a few months at the start to enjoy some ‘away from the clock’ time, not only to recover from cardiac ablation number 3, but to adjust to a freer schedule and figure out my own rhythms. There are times of the day I’m better at writing and creating, and others when I’m better able to knuckle down for more routine or repetitive tasks.

Can I just say I’m LOVING not having to go to my office along the landing every day at a certain time. I’ve kept myself quite busy without even really trying and now am ready to get a bit more of a handle on my schedule and where I’m going. Time to make a plan!!

But first a belated retirement BBQ was such fun
