I found it very moving and thought provoking so I thought I would share it with you. A few years ago, I took a sightseeing trip to Washington, D.
Retirement-Day But who's counting? There are lots of days I wonder how hubs ever found the time to go to work every Monday through Friday, not to mention all the Saturdays and Sundays he traveled to some upside down time zone in order to be ready for a Monday morning meeting on the other side of the globe.
There are also days I think, hmmm He's realizing those are the days I need him to go play golf, wash the cars, or do something somewhere besides where I am. Does that sound awful? I don't mean it to sound awful, because on the whole retirement is grand.
Of course it will be grander once the house is underway, but in the interim we're livin' the high life in our cozy apartment. There is so little to manage in terms of daily living.
I can clean the entire place in an hour, and we have very little here in the way of belongings, which makes me occasionally stop and ask myself why it is exactly we're building a house?
We need to see the water. Hubs and I realized after moving in here that the layout of this apartment is almost identical to the very first apartment we lived in as newlyweds.
Except we have actual furniture here, not plants pretending to be furniture, wooden crates picked up on the side of the road, or a T. We don't have jobs to go to everyday either, which is both a pro and a con. Not so much a con really, just something that requires a little figuring out and of course we're only in this setting temporarily, so no sense diving too deeply into much more than the house build for now.
Hubs has plans to do something, and I have plans to do something, but first we supervise-ha! Other items I've noted in our temporary digs- I have an electric stove here and am so not a fan. I grew up with an electric stove, but our house in the UK had a gas cooktop and my house in NJ also had a gas cooktop, and once you've cooked on gas you only want to cook on gas.
My lake house will have gas. I'd kind of forgotten about that whole hauling thing apartment living requires. Maybe blocked is a better word, because I did move my girls no less than fourteen times from dorm room to storage unit to apartment to storage unit and back again not so long ago.
We're now living on the second floor, and I've successfully re-mastered the skill of carrying seventeen sacks from the car in one trip in order to avoid going back a second time. Our mail is in a central location here, a box with a key that I check every day like I did when I was in college.Check out A Priceless Lesson In Humility by Dan Gediman & Felipe Morales on Amazon Music.
