What A Life
I was talking with a colleague about work and retirement. I sometimes complain about work. At times I have over committed and ended up working a real grind, but all in all, I have had a good run. As my father once said, "when work looks nasty, just remember some guy is the gut snatcher in a hog processing factory." Kind of graphic, dad's can be like that, but his point that someone out there has a nastier job stuck over the years. I may not have spent my work life sitting on a chair watching the waves, but I have had some comfortable jobs.
Hubby was talking with a colleague about his impending retirement from teaching, and they said, "after a while you will miss it and want to go back to work." To which he responded, "I never wanted to work in the first place, that is why I never left school."
I do think that I will want to keep doing something, but I can see changing pace to only doing the parts that I love doing in a few short years.
How do you feel about retirement?

I love it and I get a bit annoyed with other's comments about how YOU or I would feel about retirement.ReplyDelete
that word is NOT part of my vocabulary. I like my job and want to be active in said job as long as possible.ReplyDelete
The best part is I get to watch 'Leave It To Beaver' reruns every morning...that Wally is *so* cute!ReplyDelete
