One Year Ago ~


Time is flying by.  I can't believe I retired a year ago today.  Where has the time gone?  I don't understand people saying they are bored.  They need to get a hobby.  Volunteer.  Anything.  I haven't been bored a day and wish there were more hours in the day or less hours spent sleeping.
 
 
I have kept busy.  (Most days, too busy.)  Two trips to California ~ one a three and a half week road trip west and the other by jet.  A few days in Chicago.  Several quick trips to Michigan.  Five days of hooking heaven in West Virginia.  A couple other hooking classes.  LOTS more hooking time with friends.  Guild meetings.  Hook ins.  This Friday and Saturday I will be attending the Woolkeeper's Hook In in Danville, Indiana.  There are several places where I will be vending in the next two months, so busy getting ready for those shows.  Never a dull moment.
 
Retirement may not be right for everyone, but it sure was right for me :)

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
Lauren

I've been retired for six years, and I am never ever bored! In fact, I find there are not enough hours in the day to do everything I want...

No moss is growing under your feet girl. I can see you're a busy retiree and enjoying every minute of it... Me I'm more like retarded, I'm just tired of not being retired, lol. I'm hoping, one more year.

I think I could keep busy with many hobbies but not travelling as much as you do. When I retire, I'll probably gain weight. Lol... We never know what destiny has for us.
Hugs, Julia

Good grief woman! You have been in a whirl-spin this last year. Can't believe you worried about retirement and making things work out. Glad this last year has been good and bet next year will be better.

I heard the story of being bored when I retired in 2009 and thought it was hilarious. As a quilter I have made more than 100 quilts...most for donation. Then I learned to rug hook and quilting got left behind. Still not bored!

Farm Girl said...

You are good busy though. I heard a couple of people talking about it yesterday and I just wanted to scream. They needed a hobby! I have never been bored a day in my life either. I like reading about all that you have done in one year. That is just amazing. You go girl!!

Jacqueline said...

I'm with you. Three years this month for me and I have loved every minute.

Agreed Lauren, I do not understand those who are retired with nothing to do. It is so sad. My bucket list overflows with stuff that I want to do. Actually, I have 2 bucket lists, or
should I say my BL has a BL.
Enjoy and have fun for the rest of the week friend.
Peace for all especially those in Irma's way, Barb

I suspect those who say retirement is boring built most of their life around the job. It sounds like you've been very busy being not bored.
