No Debts, No Boss, No Worries, No Paycheck

You Guessed it !

Is it really all its cracked up to be? HELL YES !!!!!!!

As I write this, I have been retired 122 hours. and I am still wondering what’s it all about. I spent 3 days catching up with all the stuff I couldn’t do around the house last week because of working those final days. Yesterday, was basically more of the same, but I did spend several hours doing what I wanted to do on Monday. Today, Friday, I decided to take a day off😀  but spent most of the day doing what I normally do around the house. One thing I have learned this week as the cash flow continues to be channelled into retirement mode, is that the “no money, no paycheck” part of all those cute sayings is slowly taking hold. 

The best part of all of this is not having to worry about fitting in all the things I WANT to do between all the stuff I HAVE to do as part of everyday living. There is a lot less HAVING TO DO now.

Speaking of things I want to do, now begins the much heralded”pursuit of happiness” 


There are three thingsI MUST DO to ensure such happiness. (1) Format MLL within Scrivener to send to publisher, (2) tweak all my online presence(s) into a meaningful product, and (3) prepare our home for its new “look” and reorganization. 

Finally, do my best to make TSSI Editorial a functioning entity.
