That makes sense. Costco runs a good operation, but it is always very crowded at the gas lines. Good reminder that if something like that happens, get out, even if you have to leave your car.

I've been retired since June and trying to keep track of days is becoming almost humorous. I could have sworn up and down it was Thursday today. I went over to pay my bill at the Nursery today, which charged me for planting a tree, and at 1:30am I wasn't too surprised to see the office was dark/locked. I figured they were out having an extra long lunch hour. So I waited around awhile thinking they'd be back any time, and losing patience, I flagged down someone working in the Nursey to ask when the office staff was returning. Unbelievable! it's Saturday!

I can't believe it how time flies by like a concorde jet when you're retired, finally doing things you really enjoy for a change.

I subscribed to getting just the Saturday and Sunday papers to help keep me oriented, but this morning I didn't look into the newspaper box, next to my mail box, as why? It's not Saturday!

Anyone else lose track of time being retired?

Sounds like you are enjoying retirement. My Scottish Terrier keeps me oriented as to time of day. (She is also my alarm clock). We walk to the mailbox and the mail delivery lets me know if it is Sunday or not. It is true that time flies when you are having fun.

Yep, I did! It's because we're still working...SS makes an adjustment to our monthly payment. I got the deposit before I got the letter. You'll probably get a letter soon too.

I still haven't got a letter from SS about that deposit. You're right about the annual adjustment and I look forward to it! Last year though my Medicare increase took some of it. In Dec. I will, for sure, get a letter letting me know of any changes so guess I'll just wait and see.

The letter came today and you were right. After I thought about it I figured as much. My SS increased by a whole $9 mo. and Part D didn't! Whoo Hoo! I wonder if we will still get the 2% COL increase as well. That would be nice as every dollar counts!

I have. I usually have breakfast on Friday with my son. This morning I texted him asking if he was coming. He texted me back saying "It's Wed. I'm working"

My daughter takes her granddaughter to school every morning. One day she was leaving and I asked her why there was school on Saturday. She just looked at me and said, "It's Thursday". Ooops. And I'm not even retired! I am unemployed though and, yep, I lose track of the days.

Went to Walmart this morning, they changed the entire store layout around. People were wandering around like zombies, one lady was sitting on the floor having a total meltdown. Oh and with all the self service lanes ONE checker working.


My quick 20 minute shopping trip took over an hour.

Yikes, a meltdown?
I was out driving today and saw a man sitting in a driveway looking befuddled. Not a residential area, more business/industrial.
