Ringo, ah yes, the resentments! I'm glad you were able to get rid of it quickly. I've learned to pay attention to my feelings so I can be aware. But, when I'm tired, things tend to slip by. I'm glad you enjoyed your Thanksgiving holiday.

November is always a tough month for me because it's the beginning of a long winter and darkness falls so early. Typically, I have less energy, so I do less, and consequently feel even less energetic. I have to get some of my Zumba videos out and make use of them.

Hi everyone!

I am back from my mom's and she is doing great. She had a knee replacement so I stayed with her a few weeks.

Anna- It is hard this time of year. I don't like it getting dark so early too. I have been going to bed early and sleeping a tad bit too much!

I plan on getting a hair cut today.

Welcome Aboard NeedRest!

Been super busy with training my replacement and getting ready for retirement ceremony and luncheon that much else is ignored. But this is temporary! Once Friday gets here, I can breathe again. (Big event is this Thursday.)

NeedRest, good for you for taking care of yourself with some extra sleep.

Midwest, I need a haircut, too, but I'm not sure when I'll be able to fit that in.

Ringo, that's so exciting! Do you know what is the last day that you will work? Are you excited/nervous about retirement? I'm sure you will love it.

It's going to be bitterly cold here tomorrow and I have to walk about 25 mins to my exercise class. But, no way am I going to miss it.

Anna- that is dedication! I hope you find time for your haircut.

I went to the gym today, took a good shower, cleaned house, and now I am having tea.

Inspiring to hear you gals continue to take good care of yourselves.

Retirement ceremony & luncheon went splendidly! So grateful for all the love. It gave me joy that many who attended enjoyed themselves.

Be well!

Ringo, are you finished working for good now? Do you have any plans? I wish you a very happy retirement.

Midwest, I bet your hair looks great!

Happy New Year ladies! I think this is going to be a good year. I plan to be more forgiving of myself and others this year.

Thanks Anna!! Happy New Years!!

I haven’t really thought about any resolutions yet. I am resting now in bed and playing on my iPad. I have been busy.

I'm still here girls! I hope everyone had a blessed holiday season. Ours was delightful.

That said, I got out of the routines that keep me sane and healthy which resulted in a slump (short depression). I'm just about out of it and back into my routines and establishing a new schedule of sorts. Adjusting to retirement. Spending a little too much time with Mr. Ringo. It will work itself out soon as we discover individual interests along with things to do together.

MW and Anna, I treasure our virtual friendship. Wouldn't want to lose that!

Ringo- it is really good to hear from you and I have been wondering how you have been doing. I am glad you are feeling better and finding a new routine. I am sure it is a challenge to adjust after working for all your adult life!

Have you had a chance to go swimming yet?

Somehow I just found this thread, I love it. One thing Im doing for myself right now is taking a few minutes alone in my office to check in here, eat my yogurt and do some breathing.
