As you hopefully read on the opening page of this bog today is DAY NUMERO UNO of my retirement. I’m a baby to retirement, a virgin. So whether you’ve been retired for years or are as new to retirement as me lets share this experience. So here’s my first day….
Normally I loath the first day of the year. I stay up late new year’s eve, don’t sleep enough so feel grouchy all day, hate to be with too many people, feel crappy because in a day or two the work year starts all over again. But today’s different (although I did stay up late, didn’t sleep enough, etc…) but I don’t have to start the new work year….wow, now that’s exciting. So what did I do today; my favorite activity….a bike ride. The morning was cold (and I was cranky) so I waited until the afternoon when the temps warmed up to a brisk 48 degrees. Got in a solo 30 mile ride from home…felt great. Met a couple other cyclists, pushed myself…great way to start the year. And now this, a blog….so tell me, what did you do the first day of the year?
