I Think I'll Survive Retirement
Since last I wrote, I have been giving a great deal of thought to what I want to do in my retirement. Some of you offered very good suggestions, and I thank you for them. One thing I decided to do was to stop worrying so much about it, and just enjoy what is happening in my life right now...Other decisions can come later.
I still hear from former colleagues, even if it isn't face to face, and I find my opinion is still sought on matters. I like that. (Write to me PGVRNBSN@gmail.com if you want an honest no BS opinion about nursing!)
I'm going on a cruise in 2 weeks with family and friends, NOT as a Medical Officer but as a passenger, and I'm so looking forward to being spoiled!
I actually have long fingernails again. I haven't been able to grow mine in over 25 years!
I'm watching every TV show that is suggested to me, and loving them all. I have never denied or apologized for the amount of TV that I watch. My mind has not turned to mush as the TV snobs say will happen, and in fact I consider myself exceptionally well informed because of TV! (BTW, thanks Sissy for telling me about Sons of Anarchy. Jax's naked backside is gorgeous!!)
My ex and I are back on friendly terms, and I am very happy about that for the sake of my son and my grand darlings. I've re-connected with family, and especially first cousins that a busy nursing life kept me away from for far too many years.
So I guess I will survive this retirement thing after all. Just like everything in this life, it's all about your attitude!
