I've had it. Retirement is boring. I'm not prepared for it. It's not the money. I just have no hobbies, interests, activities that can sustain me through this.

I'm used to colleagues, other teachers and staff, hanging out in the school hallways and of course in class. I'm social. I'm a Yellow. I love people. And here I am, retired.

I'm planning to document what it is I'm doing just to make things better until I find my bliss. I know it's out there.

I'm also apologizing to all of you who have made legitimate suggestions. I just can't seem to do genealogy. I tried volunteering at a museum and that didn't ring the bell. I did give it a chance, too. I lasted a whole year. Some have suggested a mission which might be fine but I'm not sure my little heart is up to it. It does have its problems.

I have a couple of irons in the fire. One is this blog. Even if nobody reads anything, I'll still have it waiting. Another is a women's club with a book club that might not prove as narrow as those chosen in Relief Society book clubs. No offense should be taken as none is intended. I just like a little bit further branching outward and upward.

We'll see.
