I know what I wanted to do after I retired!
by Eldon Bryan Howard
I retired from teaching (in the public schools) after 35 years in May of 2016.
I had all these plans, that I still want to do, but I am finding it hard to get motivated. I want to fix my house up, and sell it, but that is going at a snail's pace. I have so much free time that my procrastination is at an all time high!
I am single/divorced and my friends all work so it gets lonely! (My daughter lives in another state.) I have started helping out at church by teaching Sunday School to kids, and that has helped.
I feel stuck! I wanted out of teaching so bad because things have changed so much, and not for the bettter, but I guess I just wasn't prepared for retirement, even though I thought that I was!
