Back in January - 6 months into my new retired life - I did a little reality check. I knew that there would be adjustments to moving to a new city - being retired - and living with W. I also knew that these adjustments would probably take a year.
I wasn't doing very well. and I am nothing if not a realist. I spent a lot of sleepless nights trying to figure out how to improve my mood - the blues were getting to me - and god knows they were getting to W!!!
The other really big adjustment - and I knew it would be - was living on a pension. I want to do more photography - I want to buy all these fancy lenses to improve my photo taking and open up more options for photography. BUT not on a pension!! It was really getting to me.
just for the helluva it - I sent out my resume to a couple of daycares in the area. And lo and behold within two days of sending them out I had an interview. I am not looking for full time work - I just want to substitute - a day or two a week would be perfect. The daycare I interviewed with was very interested! Interested enough that they had me go for "booster shots" (for all those kid's diseases I never had ) and to apply for a police check.
Today I am off for orientation. Then March 10 - 14th they want me to work from 9am - 4:00 pm with their kindergarten class!!!
So I guess I am now semi-retired - with extra money coming in and a reason to drag my cute lil ass out of the house........... maybe life will start picking up...........
