Jet setting seniors living the good life. You know the ones I mean; those seniors who spend half the year in a warm climate. They spend their days going on tours, skiing, para sailing, golfing, taking dance and tennis lessons, walking their matching dogs. I don't know any of these people personally but I'm told by reputable sources that they do exist.
I was just thinking about my day and comparing it to this glowing example of retirement.
We were up at 'half past sparrow fart' and scraped a quarter inch of perma frost off the car so we could pick the Momma and wee man up for his before school doctors appointment. The morning was spent waiting, driving, waiting, driving and driving some more. By the time we got home it was time for lunch (left overs) and the news (none of it good). Now we will head out for groceries. By the time we get groceries, go to the bank, put the groceries away and clean the produce it will be time for supper, then news, then TV and knitting and so to bed.
It really doesn't stack up well with the retirement lifestyle we are all apparently aiming for.
Maybe tomorrow will be more exciting. It's laundry day.
