Another Reason to be Happily Retired

I have been under the weather the past few days. It is nice to rest at home without having to call in sick and put together sub plans.

There are so many things to adore about retirement.

Sub plans when you are sick are very challenging and a pain in the neck. I hope you feel better soon.

Sub plans, ugh. And all the catch-up when back, ugh.

Thanks for making me smile in retirement. It’s been almost 4 years since I retired and I’m still positively gleeful at this surprising lifestyle. I guess I never really thought about what retirement would look like. Every single day I am grateful for the happiness I feel. It’s usually over something small, like having time to do something. I’m just plain joyous.

Watched a mama squirrel go up and down a backyard tree at least ten times, gathering dry leaves in her mouth and bringing them to her nest.

She’s the only squirrel left since our neighbor cut down his oak trees. Looking forward to seeing some young ones in the spring.

So wonderful to have the opportunity to relax and enjoy simple things.

In our case...

...we've been just drowning in the tasks of taking care of my dad's needs, and then his house since he was finally placed in skilled nursing...since last June when we both retired we've been inundated with tasks dealing with dad's situation.
But we both acknowledge that if we hadn't retired last June, (both of us teachers, me 41 years and hubby 51 years), we'd have had to quit. So having the time as retired people to deal with all of this is a blessing.
