Pondering Retirement

It's a whole new world when you no longer have a schedule,
so many doors suddenly swing open for you.

Behind door number 1:
The Nap.

Now the nap is a very special thing; 
what was once enjoyed only on rainy weekend afternoons
can now be had any time of the day or night.

Behind door number 2:
The Book.

Another enjoyable past time that was previously reserved for the weekend,
or tuesday night when there is nothing on TV worth watching.
Now the act of reading can be enjoyed at one's leisure.

And door number 3?
The Freedom.

Being able to go anywhere and do anything whenever one wants.
Costco on a tuesday afternoon?  No problem!
 Appointment on thursday morning?  You're covered!
Coffee break?  How about right now!

Ah, I think this is something I could get used to.
Well, at the very least I am going to try to enjoy it for the next 5 weeks and 5 days,
because after that none of the above will ever be possible or easy again!
