I’ve been retired for only three days and I think I’ve driven everyone on my IM list insane. I’m not quite sure what to do with myself yet. I started a calendar and instead of a staff meeting at 8AM it now says bathe. I think that’s a good thing.
I’ve been filling my time doing exciting things like watching a bird chase a snake. Yes, a bird chasing a snake. It was all fun and good until it chased the snake into my garage and caused serious anxiety. While I don’t mind the bird having a little fun, I draw the line at snake juice in my garage. (No, I’m not sure what snake juice is, but I still don’t want it in my garage). While the enormous snake was seemingly scared of the scrappy little bird, the shovel I had to scoop it up with didn’t scare it at all.
Besides my Nature Girl adventures, I’ve had a slow running week. I ran five miles on Monday morning walking the last 2, and 5.65 miles today with the same tiredness. I have a twenty mile run this Saturday and I sure hope some of my energy comes back by then. I NEED a good long run.
