In case you’ve been wondering where I’ve been (since I haven’t written in a while….because I had nothing to say) I’ve been in my own little world. I love it in there. My little world that is. Everything inside my little world is agreeable. That’s because I set the rules and I change the rules to my own satisfaction.
Most of the sprucing up on our home has been done. Except for some of DH’s chores (like power washing the exterior of the house). I’ve been spending a lot of my time just sitting out on my deck, looking at the sky and trees and being more grateful for the luxury of doing just that. Looking and observing. And thinking. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately. I suppose that’s what one does in retirement. Finally, you get a chance to take a breadth and think about the last few decades you have lived. And the next few decades you are going too live.
I’ve got a few challenges coming up that I want to master. For starters, I want to master boondocking with my RV because I don’t want to spend any more money traveling than I have to. The “young kids” out RVing today have brought a whole new light into the sport. They seem to have mastered it. They’ve got apps and spots and locations all buttoned down. They’ve got solar and hot wifi and pro sports cameras documenting everything!
DH is wrapping up his last job hurrah. He’s more determined than ever to NEVER take on such a long employment ever again. We’ve paid off our old debt and taken on some new debt with a careful eye stuck on that bottom line: passive income. Every retiree’s yardstick. If you can mange your life within that financial framework, you’re golden.
Yup, it’s nice inside my neat and tidy little world.
I don’t think I’ll ever come out.
Live well and prosper, my friend. Live well and prosper.
