Hi Everyone,

Just joined the group! 

We retired a year ago and it seems we did more RVing BEFORE than AFTER retirement (smile).  Well, there is always a lot to do after moving, but we are about to get "caught up" and intend to hit the road shortly.  It takes a long, long time to get anything done during those long one-hour work days (smile).

Regards,

Jim

Welcome to the Forum.
I've been so busy since I retired 3 years ago that I don't know how I ever had any time to WORK.    :D

Hi Jim,

Welcome to the forum. Congratulations on your retirement. As you found out, it is more difficult to get things done now than when working. I may never get caught up and I've been retired for 10 years!!! My goodness, where has the time gone??? :)

Thanks, Woody.  I always heard that, but now I know it's about right.  I have an explanation, though!  We had time to work because we arose at a designated time and didn't take a nap any time we wanted (smile).  When you get up a noon, take your time having coffee, take a three-hour afternoon nap and go to bed at 9PM, you don't have much time to get anything done (smile).  We bought five acres in NM and I have to watch over the desert plants!  Actually there was a lot to do.....driveways to cut in, gravel to spread and pack, RV building to build, patio, tool shed, fencing, landscaping, etc, etc.  Good thing about it though, it doesn't have to be done this year (smile).

Regards,

Jim

You get up at noon, my god, I knew there were people like you.    :D

No wonder I can't get anyting done. I love staying in campgrounds where nothing moves until the after noon.
