So I’d say we’ve gotten the hang of this retirement groove. Our days have settled into a nice routine. And I am really enjoying the relaxed pace. We get up when we wake up, have a little coffee, watch a little news (which I record so we can start it whenever we make our way out into the living room), go for a nice walk, and then our day just kind of goes from there. We may take a drive somewhere, or pick up a few groceries, or have some nice dinner cooked on the grill. Whatever strikes our fancy.
So other than “normal” daily stuff, what’s been going on around here? Well, we took a ride over to an RV show in Jacksonville last Thursday. Walked around the rigs and checked out some fivers and some Class A’s. I really didn’t see anything I like more than what we have. We talk about the possibility of trading in someday, but we have made so many modifications to this rig to get it just the way we like it, that I can’t even imagine moving into something else.
Harry said we could always downsize, but I said there is definitely not enough counter space in the kitchen, and the living room is a little tight.
In other news, this past Friday was Harry’s birthday. We had a great day…watched a James Bond movie (Harry’s choice), took a walk, and went out to dinner at Outback. And, unexpectedly, Harry got to try out his camera on some military jets flying overhead. They were up there for a couple hours. He really appreciated the birthday show.
I am still doing well with my eating and exercising. So far I have lost almost 30 pounds (3 pounds to go).
This picture was taken October 8th, one week after I started on the weight-loss journey.
Harry took this picture of me on Saturday. I am feeling really good, and am almost halfway to my goal!
We are loving our life. We still find it hard to believe sometimes that we are now living the dream that we worked towards for the past three+ years. We don’t miss anything about living in a “sticks n bricks” house, and we were sure happy that we weren’t in NY a few days ago when they were getting all that snow. Life is good.
