    Merry Pines Day MMC ~
    Not too much going on here, I'm just having my coffee and a bite to eat. I have a chiropractor appointment in about an hour. I’m going to wait until I get back home to walk the dogs, hopefully it warms up a bit. I’ll just be working on my daily chores later this afternoon. My youngest is going to the laundromat after work and said she’d come over for dinner when she’s finished so I’m looking forward to seeing her. I guess that’s about it for me. I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful day!!!

    Happy Wednesday and Merry Christmas!
    Temp this morning was 42. Forecast is 73 and sunny
    39 days to Daylight Saving Time
    Tuesday exercycle time: 0 minutes
    2020 yard work: 20 hours
    2020 exercycle time: 2 hour, 00 minutes

    Another great day to embrace. I definitely need to get off the couch in the evenings and get on the exercycle. Lazy, lazy, lazy. Today in the office is just more of the same. Have a 10am meeting to review and discuss a Supplier agreement.

    Enjoy!

    To those of you still working, I feel for you. I'm retired, at 55 - five years ago, and I thank my lucky stars because I spent more than 25 years, with a 2-hour each way commute, in a job I hated but doing the work I loved. The managers made the job a whole lot tougher than it had to be and most couldn't do the job because they had never done the job - the theory that "all managers can manage anywhere". I took a 40% pay cut when I retired and turned down several offers to go back as a higher-paid consultant, but it was the best decision I ever made. My advice - retire as soon as you can, life is too short, your family too important, and your body won't last forever.

    Mid-40s and sunny out there today, I think I might just to go down to the stable and talk to the horses awhile...Embrace the Day!

    Good advice 'Herder. I retired after 30 years working for a county school system. I chilled out for about 10 weeks then drove a delivery truck for another 10 years. I can tell you, working for that minimum wage 30 hours a week was a lot more enjoyable than running in the rat race. The rats always seemed to win.

    I planned poorly and have endured some unfortunate circumstances. Right now I plan to retire in 5 years. Best I can do.

    My brilliant bride scored a refurbed laptop from work for $50. Now if only she can put down the NOOK long enough to mess around with it.... o_O

    Not unlike the room full of manure, there's just gotta be a pony...er...something good in the job somewhere.
