My weekend of retirement…left to chance–Round 3

Here is my itinerary for the weekend…

October 12-14 copy

Do Something Dice.

Roll for your next adventure.

According to this roll of the dice, over the next two days**, I should aim to:

  1. Visit a museum.
  2. Dessert. I can live with that.
  3. Running. [Perfect. We just adopted an Aussie Shepherd who seems to prefer a higher gear than we’re used to.
  4. Comedy [Time to pull out Dave or Ghostbusters.

How did I do last weekend? Grade: D

  1. The whole weekend was redirected to adopting and acclimating Buddy the Aussie Shepherd.


**I actually count Friday afternoon as the beginning of each retirement weekend.

Stepping Stone 2: Self-doubt creeps in.

It was a weird thing, but early on in my year, it seemed like there was always an internal tug-of war–Should I do this? Can I do that?

Things in the past as simple as writing a short blog post…”Is the wording exactly right?” “Is there really any value in these words…for anybody?” “Maybe it needs an extra day to cool off.”

Did this uncertainty come from the shift to a new chapter in life?
