Retirement, Paint and Bathroom Finishing.
Retirement is good. I'm sorta getting used to the idea that my phone just aint gonna ring. I really like that feeling, but at times, I do miss the paid for scenic tours I used to go on too. I definately do not miss going to work at 8 pm and hauling stuff around the bushes all night though.
I was actually planning on doing this retirement thing when my boss retired, but I decided that I can't wait that long. I was getting to the point to where I had instant anxiety every time the phone rang, and alot of anxiety wondering when it was going to ring. A weekend off just don't do it for me. Even ten days off don't do it, the days go by so quickly. So I think I need the rest of my life off. lol. I don't know if life is going to be that simple or not, but I hope so. Some day I might want to go back trucking. Maybe some highway hauling into the states or something, just to see some different scenery and all that, but maybe not too. Who knows, but if ever I need or want to go back driving, I'm thinking I probably always can.
I am in the process of educating myself to become a fairly decent stock trader/investor. I have been obsessed with the markets since the big crash in 2008. I have been pretty active in the stock market for the last couple of years now, but I do have alot to learn about it yet . It's not the easiest thing I've ever done, that's for sure. I do plan on spending quite alot of time educating myself even more on the subject once I am in the house. I just can't get enough of it.
I have been trying to get the bathroom done and out of the way, then life may become a little more conveniennt in alot of different ways at the hermits house. I still have some plumbing in the basement to do before it is all completely operational. Soon it will be time to pull out the wallet and spend some hard earned cash on power. Batteries and solar panels.
