Hmmmm – I’m still considering WordPress. Do I like it? Do I really want to fully switch to it? Is this the biggest issue in my life right now?
Sadly, the answer to all three is probably “yes.”
Ok – let’s talk. I feel like I need a change. That’s probably due to the weather. A low pressure system will do that to you. A couple of days of holing up in the middle of July and I begin to feel like a root vegetable. Do carrots suffer from self-loathing? Likely not. Therefore I believe I must be a turnip – or a rutabaga. Yeah, rutabaga’s are pretty much at the bottom of the heap vegetable-wise.
Where was I? Right – change. I need to stop pretending I am still fully employed. Or stop acting like it. Here I was, all these last couple of years, praying for retirement to come and now I have this anxiety when I don’t get an assignment for a couple of days. Time to stop.
Do all new retirees feel like this? Like – how do I re-arrange my life? Even more important – how do I reverse the putting money away for retirement to spending money that I’ve put away? Akkkkk!!!!
Let me tell ya, it ain’t easy.
Things I need to do:
1. Start taking the university courses I downloaded.
2. Start taking long hikes in the middle of the week.
3. Work more hours in the garden.
See – that’s all do-able. I also need to make up my mind about WordPress. That makes the first three “should do’s” look easy.
