Retired AF

With everything getting the suffix “AF,” I figured that I could also be retired AF. No? Well, Thaddeus and I are enjoying it. A LOT!

How To Be Retired AF

Somebody once told me that if you don’t feel like you earned something honestly, then you can’t enjoy the proceeds. I’m not sure if that’s true in all cases, but it feels true in mine.

I worked diligently for about 40 years of my life. Whether it was in college or in the workforce, I pushed and put forth as much effort as I needed to be successful. Don’t get me wrong, I was very fortunate. I succeeded in part because of all the status that my life brought me over the last few decades. But I also carved out a career and learned the skills I needed to be a success – and eventually retire at the age of 58.

It’s hard to believe it’s been almost 9 years since I retired. I only have more to be grateful for now. The feature photo as taken at a restaurant we hadn’t been to for years – Tacos Cancun in Lambertville, NJ.

I had the Plato Cancun – a hot skillet with pork carnitas, sautéed seasoned shrimp and marinated pork loin. It was fantastic being back. They were thrilled to see us back as well.

This week, we’re heading over to the local Vietnamese restaurant. Can’t wait.

Current Knitting

I need to just force myself to sit down and knit ribbing until these socks are finished.

It’s not like I have anything else to work on at the moment, but I’d REALLY like to get this pair finished.

  1. If you hadn’t been a prudent planner you’d have been working until your last birthday, so congratulations on being well-prepared and meeting your goals. Isn’t life on your own schedule grand?
