How do people fill their days when they don't volunteer or have a job. I was just asking. I am slowly giving up my volunteer jobs and I am retired. So then what. Someone told me that they are continuing to work because"how much shopping can one do?". I was thinking in terms of just sitting, just reading, just knitting ,just thinking over my life. I can always fit shopping in. After all, Good Will is opened on Sunday's. I looked around and I don't have any role models of what to do when you just stop .Everyone I know is either working or are an active volunteer. I may be the first person to just become a professional sitter on the couch. How long can I do this. Will I have withdrawal feelings for not being a worker bee? I really enjoy being a worker bee. How about if I meet this issue half way. I will practice saying "NO" half the time and sit on the couch the other half. Great idea. I'll get up off the couch now.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
