This time last year, I was in a job funk. I was finishing a project that I'd been on for more than a year. It was a flawed project and stressful. I was glad it was over and ready to move on to something else. Only it turned out, I would find out before the end of the month that there was nothing else, I was laid off.
Last night I looked at journal entries from July of last year and even before I got the news I was thinking of quitting. The end of July was the end of the job. I never really got serious about finding another job. I set out to be retired. It's been an interesting year. Not a really amazing year but, honestly, I've got zero to complain about.
I'm not sure what today will bring. It's still such a luxury to have all the time I want to do whatever I want. I have knitting and reading and TiVo and, if it doesn't get too hot, I might even walk up the street to one of the new restaurants for lunch. There's no more baseball until Friday. Usually, I find the All Star break annoying but this year, I'm grateful for the break.
Right this minute, I think I'm going to finish my coffee over a mindless computer game. Because I can.
