I just had my retirement party and ate a lot of cake! Sugar high!
I have one more week of work, and then I will be retired. This is a really big thing for me. I haven’t had more than 10 days off in a row in decades. I can’t even grasp what it will feel like, but I suppose I will adapt to it really quick.
Poor Cole. I hope he doesn’t get tired of spending time with me. I know my cat, Thunder, will get his greatest wish. Every morning, he tells me not to go to work—that I need to spend more time with him. My dog, Maggie, usually wants me to go to work as soon as possible because I give her a Kong toy filled with treats, but that’s how dogs are. She will like the better walks.
I hope Kevin and Ellen don’t mind seeing me a little more. I’ll be tagging along with them on their weekday rides.
I will be really, really happy when the days get shorter and I won’t have to give up my trail rides because it is too dark in the evening! I love trail riding in the fall, and I plan to be doing a lot of it!
