I don’t know if I could ever retire. On Thanksgiving break, I had Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday off from work. Todd and I were together Thursday and Friday, and then he had to go to work on Saturday and Sunday. By Saturday, I was bored out of my mind!! There is only so much I can do online, only so long I can play with the animals, and straighten up the house. OK, I’m sure I could have done a better job cleaning up the house, but that wasn’t happening. TV was boring. I didn’t even cook (I know…what a lazy bum!) To be honest, I didn’t even get dressed Friday, Saturday or Sunday (TMI!) When I went out to feed Squiggy and Lana, I went out in my robe.
I like to think that I could retire and find things to do, but it wasn’t happening Thanksgiving weekend! I don’t really have any hobbies. My animals are my “fun time,” and sometimes, even they get on my nerves. I probably should have listed some of my gift items on Etsy, but didn’t. Oh well.
Then I start to think that this doesn’t only effect when I “retire,” but if I choose to stay home with children in the future. Could I have a schedule and get everything done within the day? Would I actually clean the bathroom floor, or scrub the kitchen sink? I despise cleaning (but love coming home to a clean home.) Would I go absolutely crazy if I stayed around the house 7 days a week? If it’s anything like Thanksgiving, I may need to reconsider my future plans!
