I'm Pretty Happy...
Every once in awhile someone will ask me when I plan to retire. My answer to that is usually something like “"when I die.” I readily admit to being a workaholic & I am sure that I would be terrible at being retired. I know many people love not having to get up in the morning, get dressed, go out & be what they feel is stuck at work all day. I say, good for them, that they can retire & enjoy it but I’m just not ready.
There are those that travel whenever they can & that’s great. Since I was a flight attendant for 20 some years, I have been to more places than most (plus, I happen to have a husband who hates to travel) so that isn’t something I aspire to do at the moment. Others like to play cards with their friends, go out to lunch, garden, volunteer or any number of things to fill their time. Some like to sit around & watch tv. Again, good for them, but not for me.
I guess some people would think that it’s strange that I’m happy to go to work when I’m of an age that I could walk away. My answer to that would be when I have a reason to retire that is better than my reason to continue working, I’ll think about it. In the meantime, for the most part, I’m pretty happy here at Sisters…k
