KEEPING TRACK OF TIME
Another Life-in-Retirement Classic
Once you retire, there is sooooo much time available (at least once you get rid of enjoying to sleep-in).
One problem, many of the days can be very similar. One day looks much like another. There are so few daily distractions to show one day is different from another. One has to be alert at keeping track of the days of the week or they will pass you by.
I used to keep an hour-by-the-hour calendar so that I could be on time to the various events in which I participated.
Now, the calendar keeps the-day-of-the-week.
- Mondays are good days to go to the library.
- Tuesdays might be a great grocery-shopping day.
- Wednesday is a baseball game in the evening.
- Thursday is the phone-calling day.
- The second Tuesday of each month, my club for rock-collecting meets.
- Every other Thursday evening is … You get the picture.
Time is still important. It is still organized. Time is just not organized it the same way.
One nice things….. Instead of just Friday evening to Sunday evening being a weekend… I can had a two-or-a-three day weekend when I want to plan one!
