I remember dreading Sunday evenings for so many years because it meant that the next morning I had to get up and go to school or work. Now every week consists of six Saturdays and a Sunday, I don't mind Sunday evenings at all. That's what retirement from your day job will do for you. So here are a few thoughts I am having this evening:
- Football season is essentially over for everyone in my family except my niece and her husband...diehard Patriot fans
- One of the simple pleasures in my life is having all the laundry washed dried and folded for the week on Sunday night
- There is nothing more refreshing than a nice nap on a Sunday afternoon. I could never do that while I was working because I would be awake all night after even the shortest nap. Now it doesn't matter and it no longer happens.
- I love lists. I either have one in my head (only worth the paper it's written on) or one that is actually written down of what I want/need to get done during the week. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. But I know from experience that it has a better chance of getting done if it makes the list.
Sundays are still the beginning of the week for me because old habits die hard. However, it really is nice to know that if I don't want to start my Monday morning early, I usually don't have to do so. Life is good in retirement. I highly recommend it.
