Looking ahead

What a weekend.  We had to call the plumber back on Sunday because when we ran the washer it all backed up again.  Fortunately we weren't charged anything additional and I believe the problem is now resolved.

I am so excited to have my surgery and to get my life back.  I am excited for retirement but afraid to look too far ahead for fear I will jinx us.  I haven't looked further than 3 months ahead for the past 5 years but right now I'm looking ahead 15 months.  That's how much time I have left to retire.  

I want to be able to spend time with my husband.  I want to take a trip.  I want to go to the Y and focus on my health and physical fitness.  I just want to have a little time to myself.   I want one road trip with my husband.......  The only trip we have had is when we went to Richmond, Virginia 3 years ago to watch his grandson play lacrosse.  

Our goal is to take a road trip and see his daughter in N. Carolina and then drive up the coast to Maine.  Ron and I both want to go there.  I also want to go to Boston with Ron.  He's never been there and I know he would love it with all its history.

We will be celebrating our 3rd anniversary on Wednesday.  I am grateful for every day we have had so far.  I am looking forward to many more.

But what I look forward to also is for Monday to just be another day in the week.

When we were about as far from retirement as you are now I made a paper chain with links for every month remaining. We celebrated the first of every month by removing another link from the chain. It was exciting to see it get shorter and shorter! We are now two months into retirement and it's the best thing! No more Sunday night pit in the stomach and Mondays are simply another opportunity to fill as we desire! Best wishes on your countdown!
