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

Who Said Retirement Would Be Boring?

Whew...I'm in the middle of another busy, busy week. Yesterday I spent the day with Mom; today it's lunch with some of my also-retired library friends; tomorrow it's golf with Rick and some friends; Thursday it's a morning dentist apppointment and then the movies with Rick; Friday it's a fun day with another retired friend. I promise never to complain again that retirement is anything but stimulating.

With all these activities, I've been pretty negligent about my health. I haven't been to the YMCA for several weeks (except for my tap dance class) and I really do need to set some time aside to go and do some cardio and weight work. And then all the lunchs with friends and Mom have put a kaboosh on my diet. I've been trying to stick to salads with lo-cal dressings and I have managed to stay away from french fries and other salty dishes but I can't say the scale has been very cooperative. Sigh...

On another note, Rick and I were pleasantly surprised to see New Dad, New Mom and Kaitlyn at church Saturday evening. At 6-days old, she was as cute as can be and so well behaved...not a peep out of her during the entire mass. We've been invited to Joey and Kaitlyn's grandparents' home for a BBQ on Sunday and we are so looking forward to seeing the two young cousins together. Get those cameras ready!!!

I would think the tap dancing would help with some what of a workout. it's good to be busy with family and friends...and new babies.

Glad that you're having so much fun.

There just aren't enough hours in the day to fit in regular exercise so why not just count the golfing and tapping dancing and call it good? Sounds like you are one very busy woman!

It sounds like you are still sticking to some good eating habits and haven't really pulled off track so that's great! But most importantly is that you are having FUN!

No wonder you never answer you cell phone! Sounds like you need to return to work to get some rest.
