My first day of retirement. I slept in and then went down to Joe’s for breakfast. In future I will probably eat at home and just get coffee while I talk to the other guys who have been laid off or are retired or are local home improvement contractors. I drove down this morning but plan to walk down to the Aquatic Fitness Center which I joined before going to work on Wednesday. I’ll work out and/or swim before going to Joe’s for a cup of coffee.
My friends at Joe’ s (and Joe) were very supportive. They are looking forward to seeing me more often. I talked to them about lawyers that they like. Will do the same with others until I arrive at a consensus about which lawyer to contact.
Ran some errands and enjoyed the fact that it was Friday and not a busy Saturday.
I dropped by a friend’s house for a cup of coffee and we had a good visit. He encouraged me to drop by more often and I told him I will definitely drop by more often.
Went home and let the dogs out. They are enjoying the fact that I am sleeping in and home more.
All and all a good first day. After talking to folks around town one lawyer’s name kept coming up so I called and made an appointment. I’ll have him review my severance agreement before I sign it.
As I think about the weekend I keep reminding myself that I can enjoy the weekend now and leave all my errands for weekdays. I think I am going to like being retired.
