What do retired people do? Play games? Blossom Blast Saga.


What do retired people do with their days?  I am not officially retired yet.  I just took a sabbatical for a couple of months to re-align my future with my goals.  I am currently not working and with that, comes boredom.  I didn’t really prepare for this so I am just making my days up as I go.  It is quite interesting actually.

My first week, I really didn’t know what to do with myself so I took the time to sleep in.  I have a dog so I get up to walk him in the morning and then I go back to bed until about noon.  I get up to make lunch, I eat and then I watch TV.  A lazy bum – pretty much.

On my second week, I realized that I cannot continuously do that or else I would go insane. (Or get fatter that I already am) So, on my second week, I decided to incorporate working out and doing household chores like laundry.  But first, I have to have a reason to get up in the morning.  What better way to get up in the morning but to attend mass at 8:30 a.m.   That didn’t quite work out as planned.  I found myself sleeping in and not wanting to go in the morning.  I kept my workouts though.  I went to the gym even if I only have to do cardio on the treadmill for 3 miles or so.  In between, I play Blossom Blast Saga on my phone or iPad.

This is my third week.  I think I am finally getting a routine going.  I managed to go to church this morning.  It was a great feeling when I accomplished that.  I also managed to go to the Commission on Elections to change my party affiliation.  I used to be a registered Independent and I did that on purpose so I can understand both sides (Republican and Democrat) before I switch.  I found myself leaning towards the liberal side and with the Republican party these days, I wouldn’t want to be caught within that party with a 10-foot pole.

So I think I am getting the hang of it.  I plan on doing this for the next couple of months until I complete my travel to Europe in April.  Then, I will aggressively attack the “want ads” when I return.  Right now, the goal is to be fit for my travel and wear fantastic clothes while gallivanting in England, Holland and Czech Republic!

I am fortunate that I have the cushion to take a break without stressing out.  Some folks aren’t this lucky so I am thankful.   I cannot be stagnant for too long, though.  I don’t want to get used to this.  I may never return to work at all.  🙂

That’s my update in a nutshell.

I will post more information once I get the hang of this new lifestyle.

Until next time…
