Subject: RE: BS: Oh happy day! Retirement
Thanks everyone.

Jim Carroll, I haven't even been retired for 24 hours yet, so I still have my whole social calendar to fill up. I'll let you know when I have settled in to a routine but I'm betting I'll be saying just that pretty soon: "How did I ever fit work into my life?"

All my music friends are retired and they are so busy doing what they love. I definitely won't be languishing at home, wishing I was back at work.

Onward and upward.

I am a little unsure how I will stay physically fit because I am a lounge lizard and not a gym junkie. I went for a 30 minute walk each work day with a couple of my work friends, so I'll have to set up some sort of regime for walking or gardening just to keep active.

Left to my own devices, I's rather paint pictures, read a book, watch a good DVD or muck about on the computer than do physically active pursuits.

Oh well, I'll work something out.

Gainfully unemployed, huh, gillymor. How about ungainfully unemployed? Unless my plan to sell my artworks brings in some income. Who knows?
