Another day spent in my nightgown waiting for Ronnie to get home from the hospital.  I napped on the couch, made some business phone calls, watched some recorded TV, finally took a bath, etc.  But, for the most part, I’ve just sat on my butt another day.  I cooked last night so I didn’t cook today.  I realized this afternoon that this is probably a little depression and boredom from the shift from working to retirement.  I can deal with that.  Sometimes just knowing what it’s all about makes all the difference in the world.  This is the top of the list of things that my best friend (who retired before me) wrote out to watch for.  I guess I’ve arrived at retirement at last.  LOL

I have things I want to do (that don’t seem to get started).  Guess that’s where I’ll start, just try to figure out the best way to apply myself to my tasks but not push myself so hard that I stress out about them.  I think one of the things that gets to me is the feeling that I’m waiting for Ronnie to get home.  That never bothered me before so I’ll have to analyze that.  I feel that I can’t get started on anything because as soon as I do Ronnie will get home (and…..what?).  What difference will that make?  What is the change there?

    This is common darling. When you shift from all out work to not even having to get up in the morning if you dont fancy to – there is always likely to be depression. I know that this is a long way past your posting date, and I only just stumbled upon it, so I guess you’re feeling better now. I hope so. Love you lots.
