And the Beat Goes On

I've had several people ask about how we are doing since that fateful day in May when we found out that there was no joy in Mudville.

I have a puppy, a man and no pressing issues on my hands. We get up each morning and walk, we sit on the patio, we visit and we play with our puppy and we wile away the day.

We decided that this is just going to be an at home vacation for now. A preview of what real retirement might be. (I say real retirement because Robert was able to start drawing his company retirement.) So that is how we are treating each day. We have gone to the beach a couple of times to work on tans before the cruise in July. We have gone out with friends for meals and been to committee meetings. But mostly we are just taking life as it comes, doing the things that need to be done, and the things we want to do.

We are waiting to hear if the job with the bank will come through. If it doesn't then we know we will have to make a lot of decisions that neither one of us wants to make right now. We have time, and I think we are going to take advantage of the time we have before any of those things have to thought about.

Sounds like a good plan. I will pray for you and Robert that things work out they way you hope they will.

Sounds like you are making the right decision for now. This 'break' may be just what you need to renew your spirits

Yes, take lots of time....enjoy being away from work and taking some days for relaxing before any big decision making!!!

Sounds like you are taking a wonderful approach. Certainly take advantage of this time best you can. If the bank position goes through, there will be little vacation time for a while. Crossing my fingers that all goes well for all of you.
