I've not posted in a few days and thought I'd catch you up on my life here.
I am rejoicing that I finally received my very first Social Security payment. I am very excited to finally be "officially" retired. January was a pretty lean month until then.
To celebrate (and because I finally had money to put more gas in the car!) I met my online friend, Marge for lunch at the Polynesian Village Resort at Disney World. We had a lovely lunch and long chat. We had several months to catch up on. I do love the Disney atmosphere and at the Polynesian, it's like being in Hawaii.
I've been contemplating my Face Book games. Just when I think that I'm going to stop them or at least cut out a couple, along comes another game to catch my attention. Right now I've got 4 farms in Farmville (my home farm, one in England, one in New England and one up in the frozen tundra somewhere). I have a garden in Gardens of Time which is fun to decorate. Now I have a manor in Hidden Chronicles. I keep telling myself that these games keep my retired mind active which they do. But they also can be (are!) very addictive. When my farms are in full swing, I have wild life babies to feed and raise, farm yards and livestock pens to upgrade (for more farm babies), crops to plant and harvest, goose eggs to hatch, lots of trees and orchards to harvest from as well as a sweet shop, pub, spa and restaurant where I make and sell items. My Garden and manor are always calling me to find their hidden objects and be able to expand so that I can buy and decorate even more.
Sounds like a full time job, doesn't it? I thought I was retired! I am downgrading some and selling off some animals that are just too much trouble. (You wouldn't believe how much those farm babies like to eat!) I am trying to remember that I do have a life off of the computer.
One but of news is that I have set a date for my move to Tennessee - or at least a month. If all goes as planned I will be moving in June. By then I will have enough set aside for all expenses and it will be a lovely month to move. The big "IF" will be finding a place. I want to be a bit choosy and I have stipulations with my next home. I am really praying that either of my two sons up there would be able to find a place for me and save me an extra trip up there before the actual move. Would be nice.
We are having extraordinary weather right now. Florida is known for its nice winters but low 80's is pretty unusual for February. We had a couple of weeks of intermittent really cold temps but that has been it. Of course, there is still more winter still and I understand a cold front is coming next week.
Hope all of you are having a great day and looking forward to a wonderful weekend. I understand that the Super Bowl is this Sunday. Not being a football fan, I could care less but there are some nice sales in the grocery stores right now because of it!
