My husband has retired. Nearly 50 years of working, from a bag boy at the grocery store, career military, to government contractor. When we married we could not imagine this day, it was so far in the future. Now, after 46 years of responsibilities and sacrifices it’s our time to put ourselves first.
But old habits dry hard. First to do, clean out the basement. We have plans for some travel when the weather cools. Right now we are enjoying the small joys of sleeping a later in the mornings. No more alarm clocks.
