I took up napping.

I took up walking, website development, $erious photography, gardening (weeding)...there must be more but it escapes my mind...another thing I've taken up LOL


It’s been almost four months since I closed the boating business and, only recently, have not woken with thoughts on payroll, supplier payments, et al. Part of me knows the business is over but another part worries there’s no income and this coming Friday I have to pay out close to eight grand in payroll, unemployment, retirement, worker’s comp, and on and on.

Okay, I’m getting over it but I have lost 30 lbs. since December. I miss my staff. I miss the day-to-day stuff of talking with customers. I miss just going there each morning. Now, retired, I can sleep in, do anything I want, yet to date haven’t found what that is.

I know I shall but in the interim I have bouts of feeling utterly useless interrupted by chores having no meaning. There’s no huge satisfaction taking out the garbage.
