Well, I’ve officially reached retirement age. LOL Of course I’ve been retired since 2006. And I’ve come to the conclusion that it isn’t what it’s cracked up to be. But then it’s my own fault, so I guess I shouldn’t complain about it. But fortunately there’s still time to make some changes. I’m going to concentrate on making the most of whatever time I have left on this little blue marble. Will try to travel a lot more than I have in the past. See places I have, in the past, only dreamed about. I don’t have anyone I want to leave anything to, so I’m going to spend it on myself and enjoy what I’ve worked so hard to achieve. It’s not much, but baring anything unforeseen, it should be enough to last me for a little while, if I’m careful.
My nephew and his wife were supposed to come up this evening to celebrate with me, but he called this morning and said they both have to work tomorrow, so they won’t be coming. Actually, I’m not surprised. They have done this to me for a number of years. That’s ok, I guess stuff does happen. I’ll still be celebrating with Jeronimo and some of his family, if they don’t cancel too, that is. If they do, it’ll just be me and Jeronimo, or maybe even just me. I don’t really care anymore. I guess when you don’t have much money, you also don’t have many friends. Sorry if you think I’m feeling sorry for myself, but it’s the truth. When I was working full time and making a ton of money between my job and selling jewelry, I had all kinds of friends and was invited every single weekend to some kind of event. But when that all came to a sudden halt, so did the friends. I guess they weren’t friends after all eh? Such is life.
Anyway, I’m going to make the best of it and enjoy my special day and whoever wants to join me is welcome, those who don’t, well, you’re going to miss something special.
