Thanks Vera, I have been thinking lots about retiring lately and our plan is that we will retire in 2015. I am finding work a bit of a challenge right now. My patience is not what it used to be. I know that if I was a nurse like you that I could not handle the physical aspect of the job. It is tough as we get older as sometimes our mind is not there yet, but our bodies and physical stamina is away ahead of our minds. LOL I say that and then I think of the people who are in their 70s and 80s and are running marathons. I wonder if our mind makes us old. It’s interesting as I was listening to the Radio yesterday, it’s talk Radio and the on-air person was talking about using your mind. How we have to keep interested in things, whether it is politics or things that are happening in the world. He said if we did not use the mind we would get bored and sit in front of the TV and then die. What a lovely thought, but I believe I understand what he is saying. I know that at present I have things that I want to do, but I keep saying that I will do it when I retire. Our daughter is moving home so it is good as we are renovating the basement, and I think this is the third time since we moved in the house. It is actually good as it is making me and hubby do stuff that we were putting off. Our daughter is helping us, but boy I wish I had the stamina she has. It is amazing the difference it makes when you are 30+ years older or younger. There is a reason for everything so I just need to get the enthusiasm and start running those marathons LOL:):)
