I heard a news person mention that summer break was almost over and back to school sales are beginning. My first thought was, “No! I don’t want to hear that!” Then I remembered that it doesn’t pertain to me anymore Whew!

It is rather nice to hear those ads and realize they do not pertain any more!

I also can remember how much money I spent during the summer so that my life would be easier during the year. So that's another plus! I can use that extra money to have more fun in retirement!

Me, too! I never kept track of how much I spent on school (and not just in summer), and I now realize it must have been a lot. Just another reason I love retirement.

Back to School Sales

They were putting up back to school displays in Target a few days ago. In the past that would have stressed me out. This time I just happily walked by knowing that I don't have to return to work in a few weeks.

I do confess to looking at the Target Bargain Spot when I was there yesterday, but I am so glad that I no longer have to think about school or spend any money on a classroom. Coincidentally, we have a large school supply store that is privately owned and that I have patronized since my cousin told me about it when I first moved to this state in 1988. They are retiring and closing the store this fall after the back-to-school rush is over. So, I am in good company!

I used to start to feel stress and a good bit of anxiety in recent years when I turned the calendar page to the month of August (we started in September). Now, it's just another month on the calendar. Yay!

This would be the week I would be working for no pay to get my room ready. I am so happy that I am laying in bed with my iPad and dog instead!
