This is an interesting time. 5 days until the day that I have wanted for 20 years. After 20 years it is making me nervous. Probably prayer will get me through it. It will be a challenge and a blessing to be retired.
I have goals and am starting a bucket list.
Crochet and knit more
Scan and organize photos from the last 38 years
Off-load things that do not make me happy, look beautiful, or are useful
Organize and research Family History
To name a few.
Go to England again to Robert's mission
Go to Canada to Amanda's mission
Serve my own mission or missions (with Robert)
Go to Alaska
Go to Australia
Go to Italy
Finish my book(s)
Write my personal history
Build our dream home
Finish my degree
Learn to speak Spanish or French or both
Run a 5K at least once
Don't stop skiing
See the "Colors" in Autumn in New England
Smile at everyone
Make sure I don't have regrets
I have met some really super people, learned a tremendous amount about life, organization, and myself. Now it is time to move in a different direction.
Watch for me!
