What No One Tells You About Retirement
The truth about being retired, traveling and living in the sunshine in the winter is surprising. I know. You are dreaming of all that freedom and exotic living and tan line in places on your body that have never seen the sun. I understand. But SURPRISE...life happens, even in retirement!
|He thought we were here laying in the sun but....|
He is in awe of the life we lead (maybe because he knows how much money we really have and cannot figure out how we manage it. ☺) We talked about the weather here in Tucson and I commiserated with him about the Oregon rain.
|This what we were really doing.|
See, life happens even in our world of leisure and sunshine. In fact, we find that "life happening" is very time consuming and often wonder how we ever worked and still had time to sleep. We don't even have much time to play and sleep.
When we tell people that we are traveling they are so envious. Last week I told about writing blogs using the microphone technology on my iPhone because we were on the road. It all sounded very glamorous. But those that thought that did not see the "roads" we were traveling down. We were returning to Tucson after being away for 7 months. The drive from Oregon to Arizona is very long. We have come down every road between here and there. What we once loved is not so much fun anymore. We will fly back and forth soon. We love to travel but once we have gone down a road 15 time we are pretty much done.
|Traveling through Nevada the "short way home"!|
|I did love this...the first time I saw it!|
Just some thoughts from b+ on a Wednesday (I think) afternoon.
