Yes, today August 15, 2012 I received my first Social Security check- right on time !! Don't you just love how money just shows up in your checking account- like money fairies, happens while you are sleeping. Could this be any easier?? Kind of feels like they send me money for not doing anything- guess it sorta is- well if you don't count having worked since the age of 17.
Well it has been a week since I have written on my blog- wish I could say it is because I have been sooooo busy that I have just not had time, but alas- that is not the case- the only excuse I have is that - well I don't have one- I mean a good one - so I won't even go there- procrastination, laziness, hmm those words do come into play probably, no not probably most likely.
Been so hot here-- I am so ready for Fall-- days of 98-100- like my sweet chosen sisters says - we have been having temperatures that should be oven settings, not outside temps- and no rain- goodness no rain in such a long time-- okay God we have been patient and have not been praying really hard for rain until the farmers got all their crops in - but the crops are in and now please bring on the rains.
The new job- (guess I could stop calling it the new job)- is going well-- I am really enjoying getting to meet everyone that lives out here -- I am such a people person and the last 15 years have spent my days sitting in front of a computer- talking to no one- so this is a real treat for me!!
This retirement thing is going pretty well so far- I seem to be filling up my time pretty well- my SH (sweet husband) asked me yesterday as he was headed out the door to go to work- "so what are you going to do today?" - my answer was "don't know yet"- that was kind of fun-- before the answer would have been "work" - but yesterday it was "don't know yet"- which made a day of possibilities open up - I suppose with a statement like "day of possibilities open up" you are expecting me to say I spent the day at the beach or read a good book, or got my toes done, or went shopping- well I did none of those- but the "possibility" was there for me to have done any of those things. I chose to wash down the cabinets and bathe the dog, but at the end of the day I felt good about my choice of how to spend the day. So here's to more days of "possibilities opening up".
So my question to you is------ do you have days of "possibilities" that open up for you?-- and if you do- do you feel good about your choice of how you spent it? I hope so!!
Well until next time- thanks for stopping by.
