Early Retirement


Headed to Tuscan, AZ tomorrow to learn a thing or two about relaxing and not working from those who know it best: my grandparents.

Planned activities include:

  • A water aerobics class with Gma
  • Mexican Dominoes
  • Drinking scotch
  • Walking dogs
  • Traveling places via golf carts
  • Eating dinner at 5:30pm
  • Bocce Ball,  Mahjong and Shuffle Board
  • Getting our nails did
  • Perusing Grandma’s jewel collection and picking out what she should put in her will for us (truth: this happened last visit)

All of the above are activities I should take home with me now that I have more time on my hands. Oh that and calling pants slacks and shirts blouses.

I don’t wanna grow up,


Listening to: 3 horror film previews in a row before “The Hangover”. Hello peeps, this is not putting me in the mood for laughter

On my mind: It’s very hard to trust that the next steps in life will work out. Walkin’ in this tension is growing my faith indeed.
