Getting it all done!

I know weíve discussed this before, but I really donít know how I took care of everything while working.

This morning I did some housework (including 1 load of laundry and vacuuming), took the trash cans to the street, and got myself ready to rumble. Soon Iíll meet a friend for a 6-mile walk and that will finish up up the morning. The grout guy is coming at noon to do an estimate and the plumber is due at 2:00. I have a few errands I should run when the plumber leaves. This is a pretty normal day for me as I prepare to put the house on the market in March.

How did I get this all done while working? Retirement is a full-time job. And the best part is I get to relax in the evening.

Isn't that the truth. Although, I think I let things slide more while working, then worked like a teamster over the summer. Plus, now I have more time to notice what needs to be done.

You certainly have gotten a lot done today. I, too, wonder how I did everything when I was working full time. Now things can be taken care of at a leisurely pace, and I don't have to fit everything in around school hours. Retirement is the best.

Relax in the evening? That is exactly the difference! Isn't great to not have the washer and dryer going at 11 PM, not have to take out the trash at 9, grocery shop after dinner....

I'm working 20 hours a week and feel like I'm SOOO busy sometimes, poor me having trouble fitting it all in. It cracks me up because just last year I was still teaching full time.

DH and I let things slide until summer. That's what is so nice, we can do things as we go.
