Sometime in the past few weeks, my number of followers has increased, and I discovered this morning that one more has brought me to the nice round number of thirty! I lost touch somewhat during my hospital stay and recovery, so I think I still need to welcome…
and now…. Margie and Roger
Thanks for coming along and joining us on our road to a life of fulltiming!
This week I have been getting back into my old routine. I went back to work on Monday, and it’s really been not too bad. For the most part, I think my energy levels are pretty much back to normal. The only thing I notice is that my work pants are a little uncomfortable still on the incision. So the first thing I do when I get home is change into my nice comfy jammies.
Actually, today is my day off but I will be going into work for a few hours this afternoon. I found out on Monday that while I was out, the company rearranged personnel in a few branches from now until the end of the year, which leaves three branches short. So the other branches are filling in. And to do this, they are actually paying overtime right now. So I am going to go in for a few hours on Wednesdays through December, which (can you believe it?) is only 11 weeks. With all of the work/improvements/updates we have been doing on the house this year to prepare it for selling, we have drained our regular savings quite a bit. So this will be a nice little booster to have a little extra money coming in!
We have for the most part reached the end of our work on the house until next spring. Harry’s car has been out in the driveway, as he has his tools, saws etc. all spread out over half of the garage. We are starting to get pretty heavy frosts in the morning, and neither of us enjoys scraping car windows before we head to work. So this weekend he is going to tackle one more project before he cleans up his side of the garage and calls it a year for house improvements! We are both pleased with what we accomplished this year. Now we get a few months off!
