Too much death around us now to feel retired.

Not this "us".

I am a virtual recluse and I leave my rural home in the woods only when absolutely necessary. This whole Covid thing has merely minutely changed my retirement.

It may sound rather apathetic, but, hey, somebody has to live as I do, and it may as well be me.

The most difficult thing that I have to do while sitting on my deck doodling is answering telephone calls from telemarketers.

We have NoMoRobo and RoboKiller on our phones (landline and cell). Our robocalls have decreased precipitously and we just call back the people who leave us voicemail. In happy news, both NoMoRobo and RoboKiller screen out calls that won't leave messages, so we never miss a call from a friend. Great services.

I had a friend in college named Hannah that we called Hannahbanana.   Wouldn't it be a coincidence.....?

Nope, I borrowed the name of my youngest grandchild for this one. My former name was much more colorful, LOL. Good to hear from you, though. ::wavey::

So, I recently retired in Oct. I’ve been an RN for 44 yrs. I didn’t think I really could retire until I met with my financial guy and found out that it would work. So far, for me, I would say that I am still adjusting. My brother told me that every day will feel like Sat, but it doesn’t. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t miss my work, but I wake up feeling like there is something I’m supposed to be doing. 

I still get up pretty early, walk the dog, drink coffee, and read a couple of newspapers. I’ve committed to working out for an hour a day, reading books for an hour or two, and completing one chore or task that I’ve been putting off. So far, it’s working. I figure that it will take a little time to get it together. I have one friend who has every retirement minute scheduled and another that just floats along without a care in the world. I plan on enjoying the holidays and I’ll regroup in the New Year.
