Retirement Highway

How many times has this happened? I suddenly have a good idea for a blog post. I’m going into a meeting but that’s ok, I can remember that. Then an hour later, I find a blank space in my mind. It’s just gone like a cartoon moment where words are walking the plank. I have it….oops, it’s gone. I don’t think it’s senioritis – it is more about taking a few minutes, jotting down some notes or making a voice memo to capture the tone for writing later.

Soon I will have more mental disc space for such moments. This blog has been about sharing those interesting family moments, with some personal reflections thrown in. It has evolved as we both have grown. But now this momalot life is winding towards retirement. Time will eventually be more abundant and, I hope, filled with less multitasking and more mindful actions. But that’s the end game of this chapter or the beginning of a new one.

Retirement from my job will coincide with home upgrades geared towards resale. Add the challenging coordination of purging, packing, and moving me, E, and two pets across the country, and I expect a good nine months of blog worthy tales.

Get ready for quite the ride.

    I’m with you, MAB. Jotting down thoughts, grocery needs, errand ideas must happen when they come to me. We have so much floating around in our heads, taking the time to jot that thought is so necessary.

    I love your blog.

  2. Yes! I never take ideas for granted anymore, because I’ve lost what I felt were great ideas, more often than not. This is especially true when it comes to getting ideas from dreams. Now I always jot down every idea I think might make for a good blog post or story.
