Oh my goodness. Back in the beginning of August I felt certain that I would quickly get back into the blogging groove – in between carrying around my new grandson and putting the touches on our new apartment. It didn’t happen.
Instead I spent my time with my daughter and grandson, fiddling around with apartment decor (and driving my husband mad), and exercising. Oh yeah – and looking at ALL the clothes in my closet and wondering when I would ever wear them again. I dressed up once or twice and even threw a few things up on Instagram. But that wasit!
I am still pondering the “dressing up” question. The non-work world – and even the work world – are super casual and my extensive wardrobe is definitely NOT. What to do? And what is really true to who I am today?
Oh, and by the way, who AM I truly today? I now can see how easy it is to simply drift into retirement. Since I am in a new city, I don’t have any friends to distract me – just the aforementioned daughter, grandson, and husband. I run a few errands, undertake a leisurely exercise session, catch up on blogs and world news, maybe help out my daughter for a bit and…the day is gone. Two months into retirement and I can clearly see how this might be my destiny unless I decide otherwise. I have friends who’ve become artists, fiction writers, and even yogis after retirement. How did they manage to become someone new, I wonder?
The future of the blog is related to how I answer that question for myself. This I DO know. I’ll be back soon to muse a little further on that question – and to share a little fashion with you.
