Totally lacking imagination for the name of this post. Here I am over a week back. I'm still not sleeping well - waking up very early. I think it's a combination of jeglag (not wanting to let go of English time) and the stress of the past week at work. We won't go into that here...let's just say one more week and then it's over. I made a decision while on vacation that will affect my bank balance but make my life happier. Yep, cutting down my retirement working hours. There are a lot of other options out there.
I intend to make my life simpler as well - how much simpler I can go is a question mark as I don't have a car nor do I own property - both matters of choice.
A friend at work told me about the blog of a lady who has retired and is living in Mexico -I am now addicted to reading it each day and to me her life sounds idyllic. Like me she does housesitting and petsitting. I think I would like to try it in a few years once my working days are over. Not year round probably but perhaps from November to May. Here is the link to her blog:
For a while I have thought of taking a Spanish course in San Miguel de Allende just because it looks so darn pretty. Afterwards I would travel solo around the area by bus trying out my basic Spanish on unsuspecting Mexicans as well as seeing possible places to spend some cold Saskatchewan winters. That would give me a good idea of what to expect and if that would be something I would like to do.
I love my apartment and the location but someday I will pack everything into storage and off I will go. A new exciting chapter of my life. It just gets better and better!
