90 Days

At some point today, it dawned on me that today is my 90th day of retirement.

I can say that there has not been a single day that I've wished I was at work. I rarely think of work or the people that I once worked with. I have made contact with a few of them, but rarely.

I met one controller to watch the Blues get beat by his team (the Wild). Chris and I have had dinner with another retiree and her husband a few times. I'm meeting a guy tomorrow and I've sent an occasional text to harass a misguided Cub fan.

All-in-all, I'm sleeping better, eating better, exercising more regularly and loving life. I've stayed pretty busy on the ministry front and managed a few magic shows, as well.

Next week I'm planning on a couple of baseball games--Tuesday night at the Springfield Cardinals and a Thursday day game in St. Louis against the Cubs.

Life. Is. Good!

Now all you need is for someone to call you to come back as a contractor for 4 times your old rate. And then not care how long you work as a contractor. What, go be retired again? OK!

John, I'm so glad you have adjusted well to retirement. Having an active, interesting retirement must be the key! Good going!
