    I agree with you, Jan. Retirement is wonderful. And I too make lists of what I should do today. Doesn't mean I'll do it.

    Dog kisses and playtime and short prayer BEFORE I get up; then they go out, I fix their ice water and their breakfast; let them back in, fix my breakfast and iced tea, fetch the paper, pray, journal, check blood sugar and weight, eat breakfast, read the paper...etc. Don't hit the QB until later in the day, otherwise I'd be here all day instead of doing my quilting!

    I'm newly retired and I'd better watch out... this is pretty much how my days go!!! I'm not accomplishing NEARLY as much as I'd hoped!!! But I am MUCH more relaxed!!!

    Running1-I'm with you---I recently retired and haven't marked many things off my to-do list I made before quitting work!!! I keep telling myself that I am resting up from all those stressful years of working and that I will get started on all those projects soon. Now the holidays are here those projects will have to wait cuz I have to rest up!

    Dogs out...make coffee...pack husband's lunch bag...see him off to work...more coffee....no QB 'til the afternoon (if I make time). Don't know about anyone else, but I need a whole lot more hours in a day to do all I want to get done!

    After bathroom and getting dressed, I let out our 5 dogs, make coffee, clean kitty-litter then let dogs in, feed 4 cats, feed the 5 dogs, drink a couple of cups of coffee while checking emails, and on the rare instance it is 6:30, look at QB while finishing coffee, then it is off to the barn with barking, wrestling dogs to feed 6 horses and 2 mini donkeys, put out a bale of hay, give one horse with heaves her steriod shot, then let the horses and donkeys out. Walk back to the house and now with sleeping dogs, thoroughly enjoy the pictures and comments on QB!

    Make the coffee, let the dog out, settle into QB, go chase the dog who is hysterically barking at the rabbit that lives in the yard behind us, settle into QB, fend off the dog who wants to go back out and bark at the silly rabbit.

    I go to the bathroom, make coffee, turn on GMA and then, get my notebook and check to see what is new on QB!
