June 17th I turned 68. Now, I don't feel old but my body does after 8+ hours on my feet lifting and moving heavy bolts of fabric all day. I am looking forward to finally retiring on June 25th at 5PM (my last shift working at JoAnns). The last couple of months have been very difficult seeing so many of my co workers, who I have been working with for the last 9 years leaving one by one and the new management trying to establish itself. It has not been an easy transition and the few long time employees who are left are not sure they will continue much longer. This is very hard as we were like a family and all worked well together and it will be difficult to not see each other at work.
I am looking forward to being able to spend time with Cameron and do things around the house that have long been undone because I didn't have the time. I plan to go to some classed at the Y which we joined a few months ago. Will be trying a Piloxing class, starting early Tuesday mornings, with my oldest daughter at the Y to see if I can keep up but they also have classes for Active Older Adults which are a little less strenuous which we have been going to but the timing will not work out in the fall when Cameron goes to Nursery school so I will either have to exercise on my own or take other classes at an earlier time.
Hope everyone has a great summer.
