Where Have All the Hours Gone?

July 26, 2008

I’m quickly finding that The Golden Years of Retirement are not at all the way I thought they would be during my working years.

I used to visualize having lots of time in which I could do all the things I didn’t have time to do while I was working.  To be perfectly honest, I was somewhat worried that I would be bored with not enough to do.

What a laugh!  Now all I want to do is find out why the days are so much shorter than they used to be.  Yesterday started out as usual — Betsy and I had breakfast and then we did our morning devotions.  I did some work out in the yard until noon, when we had our main meal of the day.  After the meal I worked on some of the many pictures I still have to organize and put into albums.  I then worked outside some more.

After our evening meal I  worked on some Christmas records that I’m converting to CDs.  (I’ve been working on those conversions for about four years and I hope I can finish within a year.)  Before I knew it, the weather was on TV and it was time to go to bed.

So where has all the time gone?  I know I’m not that much older and slower.  Someone must have cut out several hours from the day!
