Continuation from yesterday’s post.
I am a packrat by nature. It is so debilitating, that I carted many things (some might say aren’t worth keeping) across the country. I declared I was ready to start, in yesterday’s episode. Today’s installment reveals my starting point.
Ah retirement…. life of leisure. Doesn’t always start out that way…
The continuing saga of moving across country after retirement.
One of the hardest parts of retiring was moving across the country with a lifetime of accumulated…. s*uff. I, to this day, still have an issue letting go of things. At some point letting go will be a must… I’m working up to it gradually… very gradually.
I recently came across this ‘comic book’ that I made shortly after I retired. I still have some of these issues more than 10 years later.
My father was most patient with Mike. Mom took Mike’s withdrawal from everything personal. I rode the middle ground: patient to a point, then withdrawing, thinking that something in me failed to reach Mike. I had an element of If-I-Keep-On-Trying-ness about me. I still wish I could have reached my big brother.
