What day is it?

Leave a comment

It’s funny to me how quickly when you break your routine that the day of the week becomes a mystery. Today was one of those days for me. Several times I caught myself thinking it was another day but Friday. I can’t wait for retirement when I’ll start wondering what week or month it is.

Well, my better half and my daughter and granddaughter went shopping and left me to my own devices today. So I made the following sandwich. Yeah, I know its just wrong. But the voices said go ahead and try it. At least I didn’t add any mayo to the bread. Yes, it bacon surrounding ham and bacon cheddar cheese.

So no heart attack so far. I even went out and washed the car after eating this. It’s ready to hit the road tomorrow for a short spin sometime. And with the temp approaching 60 it might inspire me to put the top down.

A mixed emotion day was had. It was about the thought of returning to the normal work weeks after this coming week. The limited amount of minutes or a few hours for a quality visit. The time with family and friends shouldn’t be such a rare treat. And I’m someone who makes it a priority throughout the year and it still seems greatly limited. So I’m going to change that this coming year.

First with my better half. Because she deserves some fun and travel. And also with my children, friends and extended family. I thought about how much I enjoyed taking my mother and father in law to dinner last night and thought we should do that more often. I can think of a million and one things I’d like to do so I better get to it.

Don’t forget to turn your tree lights off before bed.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
