When I retire...

I've never thought much about retiriting. I don't know a lot of retired people that aren't busy still working. The teachers I know that have retired have continued to work in education in some form or fashion. I just assumed I'd teach until I died. Maybe I will.

Chad and I have joked for a while now that once the kids move out, we are getting an apartment downtown for just us. It would be a heckuva lot easier to take care of than a big house and yard.

However, after getting our camper this summer, Chad and I have talked about maybe full-timing. I'm not sure we wouldn't drive each other crazy, but the idea of it is nice. I absolutely love drinking a cup of coffee while watching the sun come up. I love being outdoors. I love the simplicity of an RV...not a lot of extra clutter can be carried around.

It's still a long ways off, but it's nice to think about it every once in a while.


  1. Mike and I talk about the same thing. I wish we were going this weekend. But, alas, barn painting got in the way. ;)

  2. I wish we were too! Chad has to work the MDA telethon on Sunday instead.
