  1. I do not have to answer to anyone except my God and my husband now!!
  2. I can sleep in if I want too!! Yes, I love sleep!!
  3. I make my own schedule.
  4. I do what I want WHEN I want to do it!!
  5. If it is done wrong, well then I get to do it all over again and no one takes my pay or takes me down a notch in grade or worse yet calls me into the office!!
  6. I go places when I want too and no one tells me that I can or I can't...Walmart here I come!!
  7. I volunteer a lot but I am learning how to say the WORD....NO!! Oh and mean it!!
  8. I am also learning that some thing, like my health come before volunteering and I am loving that too.
  9. I get to go exercise now and was never able to do that when I worked. Always too busy with work and home.
  10. I get to go to "daytime" ladies bible studies!! YES!! I am throughly enjoying that, believe me!!
  11. I can take a nap in the afternoon, read a book, scrapbook or go to the Mall if I so choose!!
  12. I can go to the movies during the DAY!! What a luxury!!
  13. Last but not least, dinner is always ready for my darling hubby and I don't have to be stressed about it anymore. I don't have to think about it before going to work. I don't have to plan it hours in advance. I have time now. Plenty of it and I am loving it. I just don't know how long this will last!! I take each day one day at a time and thank God for this day of retirement!!

LOL! It IS the good life, isn't it? I only get to be "retired" in the Summers... I'm dreading my retirement ending in a few weeks! I'll sit back and watch you enjoy yours!

Since you shop at Walmart, you sign up for free samples of products at, too!

Love that being 'retired' too. I tell people I am a 'kept woman'. That works for me.
Thanks for stopping by my list today. Have a great weekend. Also, thanks for your prayers for our trip.

I'm not retired, but being a Domestic Goddess is a close second! ;)

Happy Thursday!

Great list! Maybe in another 20 years;-) But I definitely need to work on that saying NO thing as well.
