I’ve decided to stop thinking and talking about retirement. I decided this was making me feel old and confused.... and since I’m not able to make some decisions I would need to make at this time… like where am I going to live and what would I do? .... I think I could and should just keep working.
Most of my friends are younger and will still be working… I think I should pretend I’m only 50 and keep working until Greg can retire in 10 years. Then we can deal with all the retirement decisions together (?)... it's an option!
But in order to keep working, I know I’m going to really have to pace myself. Like now- I don’t need to stress about cleaning out the basement THIS summer…. I can take my time over the next 10 years. Procrastination, it’s a skill I need to get better at, but it just might be the thing I need.
For this week, I'm focusing on taking breaks and enjoying nature throughout the day. This view is out my back yard Des Moines, at the "old folks home". They make good neighbors out back.
