But yesterday we went to my nieces engagement party ... that was fun. I, of course was very skeptical because I don't believe in leaving the house unless it's on fire or we need groceries. I spent the afternoon trying to be sick. I needed an excuse to NOT attend. It was way over on the other side of town....will I know anyone there? ... (umm it's my family shithead) and the new extended family... I was seriously troubled by this. UNTIL her sister emailed me and asked for ride because she had to work until 6:00 PM. She only works a few blocks from our house. I said ...hell yes!! It just took that little motivation to get me grounded.
You know, I finally took a good look at myself. I have sat here for eleven months whining about all the things I previously said I wanted to do once I was retired .. and I have done none of them. Yes I dabbled in some crap...but couldn't concentrate.
Last night was so great. Talking with real people..seeing new things. Making an ass of myself...which everyone seems to enjoy....the old Joan might just be back. I sort of missed her.
