Retirement is a week filled with Saturdays and Sundays interrupted only occasionally by a holiday.

Oops...What Day Is It???

So this morning, bright and early, I was blithely checking out blogs and writing a post about my wide awake brain when suddenly some voice in the back of my mind told me to check the calendar I keep in my purse. Good thing I did. I discovered that, instead of working Wednesday and Thursday this week, I was actually scheduled to work today (Tuesday) and tomorrow. Oops! I threw on some clothes, called work to tell them I was on my way, and then headed out the door. I was only 2 hours late so I stayed an extra two hours to make up the time and now we're even. The good news...the air conditioning at Library Headquarters was actually working and it was such a pleasure to stay there most of the day.

OK...I'm chalking up this sudden memory gaffe to having a fried brain thanks to the lack of air conditioning and the 100 degree temperature. And what worries me is that I'm not sure how much more of this I can take before I take a plunge off the deep end. Oh wait...a plunge off the deep end...could that give me some relief from the heat?!?!?

Since retiring I have made a few mistakes with the days of the week, like putting out the rubbish bins a day early. But now that I'm working part time again (threatening to becoming "most time" as you commented on my blog), I have to resort to my diary more often.

I'm glad your job as the benefit of air conditioning at least!
