These past 10 days have given me a glimpse of what my retirement might be like.
Since I finished teaching my class the first week of March, I really have no teaching responsibilities right now, so my days are fairly wide open.
And let’s just say I have not made the best use of those wide-open days.
Despite having the whole day free, I’m not getting to my blog until after 10:00 most nights. When I look back on what I’ve done all day, it hasn’t been much.
Well, there was an hour of Curb Your Enthusiasm, an hour of news, an episode of Schitt’s Creek, and then a Netflix movie after dinner (which we had delivered).
We also wanted to take our dog for a walk at one of the local colleges, but the two we drove past were closed down. So after half an hour of driving around, we ended up back at Villanova to walk our dog, five minutes from our house.
Add in some mindless scrolling through Facebook and YouTube, and before you know it, it’s 10:00 at night.
No exercise, no yard work, no projects around the house, no reading.
I guess it proves that saying – if you want something done, ask a busy person. Nobody should even think about asking me to do something, I can’t even do my own stuff.
I need to think about how to get into a routine when I really have nothing that needs to be done.
Otherwise, when I retire, I might earn the title of the laziest man alive…
