What's up with my retirement

What's up with my retirement

The good part ....

  • To be able to get away from a job that required stifling the most important half of yourself for security's sake.
  • If there's any truth to the saying "You are measured by the company you keep", the door is open once again.
  • A chance to think and dream freely if you have any of those molecules left in your/my body.
  • It's like returning home because you've been wounded in Vietnam.
  • The only absolute project is getting used to living on a more modest budget.
  • A chance to share Mexico with friends and relatives when they choose to visit.

The bad part ....

  • Nobody else is retiring at the same time you/I are/am.
  • Life/living changes can mean moving away from friends and family.
  • Family responsibilities that you took for granted have to be re-evaluated if you move.
  • This is a sure sign that I won't live forever.
  • The paycheck is a whole lot smaller unless you've made some really good moves along the way - and spend a lot of time doing it (seems like I did).

I think the positive wins so far .... hey !

the way we live - the way we die - the wave hello - the wave goodbye

Off to Mexico


The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
