MY DAYS IN RETIREMENT

Wake Up – You’re Missing The Show

Leave a comment

Nat managed to take a break this morning. Bill called and away they went – off to play golf. It was good timing on Bill’s part as I think Nat was over-doing it in the garage. He’s down to painting the drywall and I know he really, really wants to get it finished, but by the end of the day he can hardly hold his head up.  By about 6:30 pm and periodically throughout the evening his head starts to bob up and down, his eyelids have drooped down to his chin and every now and again he catches a wee glimpse of the show we’ve been watching.  During summer repeats he’ll be remarking “How did we miss this episode?”  And with my memory being what it is, hell I won’t have a clue!!

While he was trying to par the course, I decided to stick it out with the new blog and get the posts edited. The posts imported from Blogger need to be cleaned up, given a heading and tagged. It’s been a long and tedious job – didn’t realize how many posts I had put on The Rouse House – but I’m in the home stretch. So far I’m liking the Word Press set-up, but there are a few different things I’m still getting use to. I’m especially liking the “New Page” thing.

So now that I’ve not spent Nat’s hard earned pension for several weeks, I’m thinking I might drag him to the shops on Saturday. Getting to be that time where I just need a little something!!

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.
