Too excited to sleep!

April 6th, 2008 at 02:18 pm

I had a really short night's sleep last, because I was so darn excited.

What about? I am writing again! It was my plan to write when I retired, but somehow I just couldn't do it, and I was beginning to feel like I didn't have it in me. But yesterday, I sat down with a pen and notebook, and it just seemed to pour out of me. At this point I don't care if it's any good -- I'm just so glad to be writing again! My plan is that this will eventually be a novel. Hint: it's money-related!

I'm also excited because Son #2 called to say that he, his wife, his son, and his mother-in-law are all coming for a visit! This will be his first time here -- my other son has been here twice, but he is less encumbered.

I'm happy that his MIL is coming along, because I like her very much and enjoy her company. And of course, I can't see my grandson too much!

I also lost 2 pounds! I am not really dieting. In fact, all I am doing is writing down my weight every day and writing down what I eat. Just doing that is making me more mindful, and I am not feeling deprived.

So these are all good things!

The bad thing -- I got a lower payment from my pension this month. Since it is partially tied to the stock market, I was expecting this to happen -- well, actually sooner than now. Conversely, my fund is $2500 higher than it was last month, so it is actually starting to recover.
