Retirement blues, books read, musings, family, secrets, lists, etc.

We're now in Phoenix, the poor man's Maui, perhaps, but we have our granddaughters in tow, so if you're wise you'll see we're rich.
We get them because their parents are in Maui celebrating their tenth anniversary. I tried to explain to Julia that most of us either spent our tenth dining at the Poco Loco or just don't remember doing anything at all in commemoration because we couldn't afford babysitters.
But she refused to relent because she insists the tenth is a big deal. Perhaps it's because she's married to Brad who I'll admit has his moments. But she says he is the "love of her life" and I believe her. So I'm not sure what she means. All I know is that he drove me nuts his high school senior year.
But I digress. Here are the girls having the time of their lives at the Kiwanis Park. Can Maui be better than this? Not if you're five and seven.
Retired teacher, MaEd Counseling, Married, two adult sons, one fabulous daughter-in-law, two granddaughters. Trying like crazy to make something of retirement. I love getting up at 9AM and love hanging out wherever and whenever I choose, but I'm trying to add meaning. Meaning. Isn't that what we're all after?
