Well, I have been thinking of this for awhile but hesitated to start since there are no great dramatic things to say or tell people about. The final push was just that I needed to get the things in my head out and whether anyone finds them interesting or not, they will not be cluttering up my head.
A few things about me
- I am about to retire after 34 years at the same place or at least I am trying to convince myself that I would like to retire ( scares the bejesus out of me). Part of the purpose of doing the blog is to work out the mental aspects of packing it in or moving on to the next part of my life, to show myself that life does not end when I shut the door on my career. That sounds so depressing and I don't really think that it will end but I have to figure out how to fill in the 37.5 hours of my waking day with things other than housework and yardwork
- my home life is normal - husband, kids, dog and cat, house, yard
- my interests involve a little bit of everything but nothing fantastic - volleyball, baseball, tennis, reading, some crafts
-my pet peeves - unshared housework, clutter ( and if you knew my life you would laugh at that one), mean people, inconsiderate people, tailgaiters, ==I reserve the right to add to this list!
So what am I going to talk about in this thing - some travel, some bitching, some venting, some reviews of books, my views of life and the world (both a bit bizarre)---so really, whatever strikes my fancy.
I am going to go back to spring of 2011 to start things off with our trip to Florida, New York, Thanksgiving at Bon Echo, and our fantastic Meditterean Cruise -
so here I go!
