I am not liking this retirement lifestyle!
I lost my job to a company buyout and was home for a year before my husband retired. Since being at home, I feel like my life has no meaning.
My husband rides his bike on country roads three days a week, but I don't share the same interest. When he is done riding he might wash the cars, and then the rest of the day is sitting in front of the tv.
I have suggested we get into some type of hobby with other couples, and it seems to fall on deaf ears!
With the economy being what it is in today's world, there isn't always the "extra" spending money one would wish for.
I feel like I live all by myself, without a spouse that listens or cares about communication and is okay with doing the same thing everyday. Everything has diminished between us, and he doesn't seem to understand why I feel the way I do.
I have always been creative, and not one for sitting around with nothing to do.
As time has gone by the lack of sexual interest has gone away, and so have my feelings for this person I used to enjoy being around. There is always a reason, (in his mind) that we can't do things.
I am bitter and bored, and retirement has a lot to be desired!
