You know....retirement is not as bad assed as I thought it was. I know I was giving it a bad name but I think it takes about three months to get used to. Heads up to all of you that told me that.

The first couple of months threw me off. I should have been so grateful instead of being a jerk. But then I was still a little resentful and that has now gone . I enjoy every day. Every day is mine. I can come and go as I please. I am still amazed at to what happens in our street and even on the city streets between the hours of 7:30AM and 4.30PM. I never saw it. I can do anything I want. No more alarm clocks telling me when I have to get up and nothing in my head telling me when I have to go to bed. It really just does not get better than that. I feel so relaxed. I don't even do shit I know I should do because I can leave that for another day.

I am truly blessed, and with the up coming house's only going to get better. But I am a pessimist....I'm always waiting the the worst to happen. My husband is the total opposite...he can never see the dark side.

Just a few pics if you didn't see them in facebook

I had a meeting with the builders and am so confident they will meet out needs.

So, balonie for once is on the happy side of life. xxx yer fingers.

Oh you are going to love that freedom even more as the house building gets underway--you will have so much time to meet with the contractors==which you couldn't have done 'cause you were working. Now you can meander over to the site and bug them all the time. --Retirement--where everyday is a weekend.
