While I’m waiting…

Are you like me?  After a wonderful vacation, spending time with family and soaking up the love, I want to make it go on forever.  I’m looking at my pictures and souvenirs, pulling up memories for viewing, waiting (not that patiently) for Disney Memory Maker to find those pictures, so I can download and share them.

The house is mostly back to normal–just a few spots of artwork, a new group of birdhouses, and some nicely-decorated racecars and rocketships to show that just a couple of weeks ago there were 2 children living here, visited daily by 2 more…   But I have the pictures of that, as well, to stir up a smile.

But pictures can’t tell the whole story, and my mind wanders back to the Actual Memory of them…their 3-dimensional presence nearly real as I pull the thoughts toward me in a mental hug.   oila!  I’m back at Disney World, or my grandkids are outside in the pool, or I’m smiling like a cheshire cat, high-stepping the the Mickey Mouse March.  My smile seems to squeeze the tears out of my eyess, it’s like a crysmile, full of so much love, peace, and joy that I overflow.

I counted yesterday as my first, Real Day of retirement.  I called school to check on some stuff I left behind, and was somehow slightly rocked to hear that they have another nurse!?  Of course, silly sonnystoner, it’s not your job anymore.  Weird.   No doubt they’re doing fine at the track with their new nurse…sniff-sniff.  So that’s behind me…

I’m catching up with house and garden.   Mostly, though, I’m spreading out the Magic as far as it will reach…  I got some booster pixie dust from Tink and this Advice…

Laughter is timeless…Imagination has no age…Dreams are forever.

  1. It takes some time to get used to retirement!! The first six months – some days I loved it and some days I hated it. I still feel a twinge on rainy or snowy mornings when I don’t have to do anything but have another cup of coffee! You’ll love it eventually…

  2. I didn’t know you were retiring. The first year out was rough for me through the winter because so many of my friends still worked. But then I discovered how volunteering can be full time, but I enjoyed that and got to work with kids through Master Naturalists. Call me if you get bored. I love going to lunch.
