Getting used to it . . .

Well, it's been a week since my last day of work, but for the most part I've felt as if I'm simply on vacation, not that I'm retired.
But as the days go by, I can tell that I'm starting to get used to the fact that I don't ever have to go back to work. That familiar feeling of dread I would have at night about the work day to come is not as strong as it was.
What's hard for me is convincing myself to slow down. I'm naturally the kind of person who is doing something constantly. But now I am trying to reteach myself to take it easy a bit more because I no longer have a "time clock" to go by.
But if I'm being honest, it may take a while to fully set in.

New beginning . . .

Well, it's begun. We've put the house on the market, and it went live yesterday. It's very much bittersweet. We are excited about beginning our new adventure, but there are things that go with it that will be sad, like leaving our house and wonderful neighbors. 
After today, I will only have the more days left of work, then I will be retired and finally a full-time writer.  I will have more time to do so many things, and keeping up with this blog will be one of them. I will post more frequently, and take you on our journey as we leave Austin and start our new life in beautiful Colorado!
So keep checking back to see what we're up to!
