Miles to go before I sleep

Radio question of the day: You probably touch it...sometimes other people touch it...but be careful; if you touch it too much, you'll wear it out. What is it?

************************************

I'm retired, so even if I do nothin' all day, I still get paid. I'm lovin' it.

But I'm busy anyway. This week I will baby-sit an Alzheimer's patient (I should say victim),drive a chemo patient to her treatments, volunteer at the Food Pantry, and also give blood at the Blood Bank.

But I get to do fun stuff this week too: I'll meet with my craft-group buddies for dinner, and with some former co-workers for lunch. I'll meet up with a friend for coffee and conversation, and then go to dinner with another former co-worker. My life is full and sweet. No complaints.

Answer to the radio question of the day: A computer mouse

The Lazy Iguana said...

Wow that is a lot of stuff. And to think, all I did was get up, drive to work, "work", drive home, and repeat all that stuff the next day.

You are busier than me!

Doug said...

You deserve that life, TLP. You brought a lot of good to the world. Now's the time to balance it out some.

Rachel said...

Ah heck, I missed the question...again. Enjoy your visits with friends. Enjoy and relax!!

Jamie Dawn said...

You're keeping up a busy schedule, and the best part is that YOU get to choose to do whatever YOU want.

Be gentle with your mouse.

Sounds to me like the very good way to pass the days, do what you love, love what you do!

Saur♥Kraut said...

You're a good person, TLP. Glad you're having fun doing it, too!

Sar said...

You admirably define Carpe Diem, TLP. I'm proud to virtually know you. :)

OldHorsetailSnake said...

You're a good pal, Nat.

It does seem like most retired folks are awfully busy. What's up with that?

I guess I can sort of understand it... I mean, I must spend 20 hours a week on must-do, non-work stuff.

I love retirement too. I can pray 24/7. Praise be!

Peter said...

How did you ever find time to go to work lucy?

Minka said...

It ain´t easy being a Pez, but it sure seems like the ride is worthwhile! Don´t drink too much coffee, can keep you up all night.

actonbell said...

Busy, indeed!
I'll beware of my mouse:)

partyrunner said...

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

I think it's terrific that you do such wonderful things for others...you are such a good kind cating person, my dear, and fun, too!

I can never guess the questions of the day...I mean, the answers..well, you know what I mean.(lol)

Mike said...

I'm glad you are enjoying retirement TLP, I can't wait personally to do the same.

I wasn't thinking about a computer mouse. ;)

BarbaraFromCalifornia said...

All of your good deeds in the form of volunteer work sound delightful.

Keep up that retirement schedule!

Hale McKay said...

This is just to inform you that I have linked you in my Thursday 3/16 post "Once Upon A Time In The Future."
...You figure in the theme of the post, because a reecent posting of yours triggered an idea I'd had a while ago, and such inspired me to work on it.

Fuckkit said...

Bring on retirement!

Doug said...

Um, TLP? Goa'uld got to you, didn't she?

Keith said...

You gone sleep?

Ivy the Goober said...

I dropped by and read this post a few days ago. So I stopped by again today, and would you believe I had already forgotten the answer to the radio question, even though once I read it I remembered that I had already?

Saur♥Kraut said...

Happy St. Patty's Day, TLP!

kenju said...

And if you wear it out, you can get a new wireless mouse, with a nack button!! Woohoo!

Fred said...

What a week! Hope you're recovering from everything.

schnoodlepooh said...

I like your questions of the day.

And I know what you mean about staying busy. When I take a vacation from work to stay home and work on projects, I'm busy all the time. I never run out of projects. And if I did have time, I would volunteer and the local animal shelter. There's always so much stuff to do and never enough time to do it all.

The Phoenix said...

I got your question of the day wrong. My answer was: "your spouse."

natasha said...

*poke* Missing you, Luce.

Jamie Dawn said...

Hello. Hope you are doing well.

Bela said...

Boo, where are you? Hope you're ok.

Anne said...

Sounds like you do a lot of things..some very nice things.

bornfool said...

Missing you. Hope all is well.

Sar said...

Hi TLP, just saying hello. Hope all's well and wanted to let you know you're missed. If you're being productive and living life then more power to you, but I miss seeing you all the same. :)
