MY DAYS IN RETIREMENT

Wipe Your Feet

The usual Saturday morning today, getting groceries and a couple of chores. Otherwise taking it easy as tomorrow we’ll be scurrying around getting our little nest ready for the Open House. We’ve been watching too many of those home shows on HGTV and we think we have to abide by most of those ideas. But today, as I got little sleep last night, I’m thinking to hell with it. The place is clean, organized and uncluttered so I’m thinking we’re good to go. Sure, I’ll do the little “staging” things, but other than that I hope anyone going through the place can visualize what they want. I may feel differently in the morning.

Will have to find someone in the family to bug tomorrow afternoon – Bonnie invited us over, but haven’t seen any of the grandkids in quite awhile either. I suppose it’ll be a coin toss as to whoever is home!!!

This whole house thing has gotten both Nat and I in a “mind set”. We’re both very anxious to get it sold so we can remove conditions on our new home, then I’m sure we’ll rest at ease and can start to pack with certainty. The movers have now been booked, the appliances researched and we’ve even been muddering over where to place that big screen TV and two recliner chairs !! We may be looking at selling the TV and perhaps buying a 43″ one. We’re still thinking and talking and thinking and talking. Man, this can make one very discombobulated – which frankly is nothing new for me.

Born and raised in a small town in Ontario, Canada, with 5 sisters and a brother. Now retired, my husband and I travel, play golf and am slowly renovating our new (old) home. After my kidney transplant in 1999, we've learned to enjoy life to the fullest. Nat and I have driven across Canada, taken an Alaskan cruise and drove home via the Northern United States. We've also been to Mexico, the Caribbean, the East Coast of Canada and Cape Breton. We've done the "Snowbird" thing, having lived in Destin, Florida for a couple of months of the year. In 2007 we changed our travel plans in order to move into and renovate our new "old" home, but hope to someday get back on the road again. We also love returning to Scotland (Nat's origin of birth) to visit his family and tour the Highlands and surrounding Isles.
