My countdown is exactly one year from today until retirement! I cannot explain the tremendous excitement I feel.

Not much will change. I will still work as a bookkeeper 10-12 hours a month.

I will spend my non-working days working….working around the house.  I have a lot of projects laid out in my mind. I enjoy the project planning.  And the demolition.  The actual restoration/refinishing, well, I do it, but it isn’t the part of the project  I enjoy…just like quilting: the fabric selection and planning is my favorite part, not the sewing.

My daughter will be moving back to the area, Lord willing, about the same time as retirement – I will be busy with her and with my parents, who have started driving  themselves less often.

What I will not be doing is sitting in a rocker on the porch, wasting time.  I plan to make the most of every retired day.
