Just Checking In
Hey everyone! There's not much happening at the moment, but since I haven't posted in a few days, I thought I ought to let you know that I am still alive. I have been feeling a little bit useless of late -- down to working three days a week and no particular church responsibilities. That means that, for the most part, I have four days a week to do as I please- the problem is that I haven't quite figured out what "do as I please" means. I can sit and watch TV and play on the Internet all day, but then I feel as though I haven't accomplished anything. I can clean, do laundry, or cook -- fun for a bit, but those things quickly lose their appeal. I can go shopping -- but I don't need anything and I surely can't afford a lot. I could travel, but that too costs money. I think I may look at volunteer opportunities for a day a week or so, but I haven't quite decided where or what. Sometimes I wonder if semi-retirement was the right choice -- that question is quickly settled every week when I hit that first work day -- wishing that retirement was total which also is not feasible right now. Part of the reason for semi-retirement was to have more time to accomplish the church tasks, but that role changed a month ago. I'm not really complaining here, just rambling, and searching for direction and renewed purpose. Stay tuned for updates. And that is the way it is today. Have a good one.
