Retirement Is . . . Trying New Things

Almost everything I am doing now is new.  Preparing to teach a new class, getting cancer support group launched, leading financial literacy course at our church, new board work, and learning to cook!  Oh, and I forgot to mention, rock climbing.


Speaking of forgetting, you can add this one to my list, yesterday I was working on my class curriculum using post-it notes to mark pages and eventually I lost track of my post-it note pack.  Last night, I found them in the back pocket of the jeans I was wearing!  This is relatively new, I used to be able to keep track of all my stuff quite well!  Not a big problem in the scope of life, I will admit.

As I mentioned in my last post, I also have the time for people.  The last two Wednesday nights, I was able to participate in Community Life dinners at our church, something that was difficult to do when I was on the road at least half of all Wednesday’s.  Spending time with my parents has been a huge blessing and now that my Dad has appropriate workout gear, I am posting this picture of him working out at the gym.


You can tell that he is enjoying being more active and is off to a great start with his new workout routine, adding time or machines to his workout almost every time we go.

So far, I really have a nice variety of new things I am doing, and it is stretching me in different ways that I never took time or had time for before retirement.
