Where To Go From Here

Although I said I would not blog about retirement, I must admit that I have changed my mind. A woman's prerogative, you know. I have reached the age where I can retire. I wouldn't mind retiring, but I would mind not working. I seem to need somewhere to be at 8:00 AM. I just want to do something different. Never was someone who knew what they wanted to be when they grew up. I still don't. I worked a couple of jobs for 10+ years, a few for much less and have been where I am for 19 years. As a youngster I was taught to never leave a job unless you have a job. I guess I learned it too well! Between Social Security and annuity payment, finance isn't the issue. My sanity is the issue.

Will work for minimum wage (although I would prefer not to) at a low stress job that I could walk away from at the end of the day and not be concerned about until the next day. Does such a job exist?

In the meantime, I know where I will be at 8:00 A.M. on Monday.

I could handle Wal-Mart Greeter! Great for people watching.

I know the feeling about the job. I wish I could find something else to put my 'talents' to use, but there doesn't seem to be much out there. But no matter what, I will work til the day I die because, like you, I have to have something to do!
