Hump Day

Well, since I no longer work, "hump day" doesn't really thrill me anymore.
Right after I retired, my cousin asked me if I still got excited over the fact that it was Friday and that the week-end was here.
Every day is the week-end for me now and I love every single day. In fact, some mornings when I wake up, I don't even remember what day it is until I look at the calendar or hear the newscasters mention what day it is.
I remember when I was working, I really hated Sunday evenings. I would get stomachaches and headaches from the knowledge that I had to get up at 4:00 a.m. the next morning and face another work week. My last 5 1/2 years of work were the worst. I hated my job. The people I worked with were nice, but I had to accept a job that I knew nothing about when my old job was eliminated 5 years earlier. Those last 5 1/2 years, I never really understood what I was doing and I felt very uncomfortable about that because for the other 32 years I had worked at Lockheed, I was very comfortable in what I did and really enjoyed doing it.
Anyway, those days are over now and I can do anything I want, anytime I want.
Like this morning.....I went to WalMart! I love going over there and just looking all over the store to see what they have. I go early in the morning when it's not crowded.
Today I found this really cute denim handbag. Since I live in jeans, I knew it was perfect for me. It goes with all of my clothes (LOL).

  1. I'm going through a similar phase with my current job, to be truthful, even though it is only a part-time position I have become to dread it.
    I'm actively looking for something else, and hope in the next couple of years, to enjoy retirement. It can't get here fast enough for me;)


I appreciate your comments. Thanks for stopping by.
