An Average Day

Like I indicated a few days ago, some days are better than others and today is not one of those days.
It hasn't been a complete loss, because I've cleared out most of my e-mail. The ones remaining are the important ones that I need to actually read and even do something about possibly. But, I can't get too excited about it. An average day runs something like this:

Roll out of the sack between 4:30 and 6:00 AM.
Drink coffee and watch TV news. I don't want to miss any important happenings, so the TV is on local news for a while before switching to Fox usually until about 7-7:30.
Hit the shower and dress for the day.
Have another cup of coffee, maybe.
Breakfast at Maria's after that, sometime between 8 and 9:30 with a selection of biscuits and gravy half order, waffle, half-waffle with sausage or bacon, Western omelette, or pancakes and bacon, or even a bowl of oatmeal with toast.
Filled to the brim by 10:00 and it's off to the store, nail parlor (wife), grocery store (wife), garage sale (wife), estate sale (wife), yard sale (wife) on occasion or go home and clean house, or turn on the computer.
Lunch sometimes at home or out somewhere between 11 and 1 or 1:30 even 2:00 PM sometimes.
Home again doing computer stuff like writing , e-mail, research, etc.
At 3 or 4 o'clock, break for dinner. Go watch a great-grandson play baseball 'til around 9 PM a couple nights a week.
Home to bed by 9 or ten.

Retirement is exciting isn't it. This weekend will be busy with an HOA lunch on Saturday and our Easter family get-together a week late this year on Sunday.

It's enough to put you to sleep.

    1. It's a tough life, Charles (chuckle, chuckle).

  2. Funny, sounds like us except we get up a couple hours later and stay up a couple of hours later. I also head out tho the golf course most days from eleven to about twelve- thirty.

    1. Occasionally, we stay up and watch the 10:00 news, but not normally. Don't play golf, don't volunteer anymore, either. Volunteering is ok for a while, but people begin to get on my nerves. I'd rather watch them than work for them.
      Any coyotes on your gold course, Neil?

  3. We try to stay away from volunteering also, get hooked into something once in a while. No coyotes on the course, but deer are tough on trees, have seen as many as a dozen at a time on the course in winter.

  4. Aha! Too bad you need a permit to hunt and it's out of season anyway.
