I woke up around 9 a.m. I tossed and turned until around 430 a.m. even with the sleep aid. My mind would not shut down. For some reason, I could not get my sister out of my head. My little sister is in a rehab center. She is a recovering alcoholic. That is only part…

    When I wake up in the morning I have to ask myself what day is it. Crazy.  I woke up late again this morning because I stayed up past 2 a.m. Once again my day hasn't been as productive as I would like. I have a hair appointment at 430 p.m it was rescheduled from…

    “Most of my life has been spent trying to shrink myself. Trying to become smaller. Quieter. Less sensitive. Less opinionated. Less needy. Because I didn’t want to be a burden. I didn’t want to be too much or push people away. I wanted people to like me. I wanted to be cared for and valued. I…

    Well, it is official.  I turned in all of my equipment yesterday afternoon. I am retired. It's so strange. I didn't feel much walking away from that place. I left some friends behind. They for some reason don't seem to want to continue a friendship outside of the workplace. And that's fine. I don...

    Another day. And I have not accomplished much. I am feeling better. But it's very slow. Thank you for all of your notes here on my OD. I appreciate those about retirement. And I am in agreement with you. I think I need to develop a new routine. There is no shortage of things I…

    New month. A whole new situation. I am feeling a bit depressed. I am not sure leaving my job is the best thing for my sanity. I know I am sick and I need to eliminate the stress. But what am I going to do with all the extra time? Maybe I am dwelling on…

    Books I read in the Month of May
    May 31, 2019
    Reading List for: May 2019.  If I had to pick favorites it would be hard.  Redemption by David Baldacci was great. I discovered a new author this month. Heather Gudenkauf. She is from Iowa. And her book was set in Iowa. And it was a page-turner. I would recommend all of these books. The Cliff&hel...
