I wonder if retiring in the winter was such a good idea as a little cabin fever is creeping in. Maybe it’s okay, though. It is definitely a time to lay low and relax a bit….and a time to recuperate from a cold. And maybe more importantly, a time to recuperate from the somewhat unnecessary scramble to wrap things up at work while preparing things for the transition from me to my replacement; all of which was actually stressful and difficult. I allowed other people’s poor planning to become my problem. I won’t miss facing that particular situation.
I wonder if I learned anything from that experience. I feel a certain disappointment that my recommendations went unheeded…would have been a smoother transition, I do believe. Ah, well…..it is what it is and they are what they are and I am what I am.
I wonder if I will pursue a part-time job in this retirement phase. Ah, honey, I do not know.
I wonder if I will get started now with more “arty” pursuits. I received a gift certificate for the Kalamazoo Institute of the Arts …. so I can take a class sooner or later. Meanwhile, time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’ into the future….which means spring is on the way and that is a good thing to anticipate.
I wonder if I will be okay, be okay, be okay. I say it could happen!
