Working out 'the bugs'

in this business of being retired - I've already tried to do too much at one time.  I guess that is what happens when one has all of one's time to oneself! 
And don't get me wrong - this is just the sort of problem I love to have!

Today I am off to see my friend the psycologist - I started seeing him when I was having so much trouble with depression and now just continue to see him as it is so nice to talk to someone who has nearly as many varied interests as I do, LOL. 

Then I'm back home again to start working on that baby quilt for the great-grand daughter-to-be.  And maybe I'll start on my Christmas blocks for our quilt group swap.

Tonight is 'tP's bowling night so I'll have the evening alone.  I've been knitting up a storm during the evenings, but feel like maybe a different direction is needed.

I'm still working on that backlog of housework stemming for all of those years working.  I really do like the look of organization and I finally have time to do all I want!  And maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to find all of that stuff I've stored in my craft room ;~).

Pacing oneself in retirement is an adjustment, especially for those with a strong work ethic. My husband overdoes. I, on the other hand, have difficulty getting to my projects because it seems like "fun stuff" and I shouldn't do fun stuff if I have work -- and there's always work.

Of course there's ALWAYS work, LOL. I've tried to set myself a sort of schedule so I can fit both "work" & fun stuff in. It's just that for some reason I feel I need to get it all done at once - there's the rub :~).
