..for loving being a senior in bloom?

I've never been happier...just learning new things, feeling balanced and confident and enjoying life--volunteering with the library, doing yoga, enjoying time with DH and friends, riding my bike, writing, and just generally having an all-around good time.

When I was a kid and had to listen to adults in school and at home, I dreamed of a time when I was an adult and could do everything I wanted to do--stay up late reading, get up late, eat what I wanted, wear what I wanted...and here I am, doing all those things.

All I have to do is die (eventually) and pay taxes.

Just feel so very fortunate. Willing to pay the creaky knee price to have this joy and freedom.

How about you?

Enjoying yourself, too??

PS..did I spell weird wrong?

Yay for you, LittleDolphin.

Except after c,
Or when sounded as "aa"
As in neighbor and weigh,
Or when sounded as "ee"
As in leisure and weird,
Or when sounded as "ii"
As in either or height.

Can't identify a single solitary thing in your post that could be called "weird."

Enjoying life. It's the new 30.

You are not weird. My wife and I moved to a new location at retirement, and have never been happier!


The only thing strange was we kept wondering when the vacation would be over.


I wasn't happy to leave my job, I left my job happy!
