I "liked" them all (well, most of them ;) ) but as the day went on I was feeling more & more fatigued by the onslaught.
One of my CNBC friends posted a funny photo of an exhausted-looking guy and the caption "8736th day of work" (lol). Which gave me an idea. ;)
I took my e-reader (book: "American Carnage" by Tim Alberta) and afternoon cup of tea out onto the balcony, did a bit of "days since" calculating via Google, and came up with this photo and caption, which I posted on Facebook & Instagram:
|First day of school for some... day 1,869 of retirement for me. 😁😉😂|
Enjoying the mild (albeit overcast) weather on the balcony while it lasts... 🙄
Someday, they too will be retired and sitting on their balcony/patio/deck... their children may have grown up and left home -- but most of them will be back to visit at least once in a while, and maybe even bring grandchildren with them.
That's something I will never have.
For now, let's just call it a draw & both be thankful for what we do have, shall we?
