Labor Day has always been a sad time of year for me. When the kids were small and we had to give up sleeping in and having slow, fun days. Our days now were replaced with "back to school" mode which meant set the alarm clock and the rush, rush of school, CCD, dance class, sports etc.
The "kids" are grown and no longer going to school so I didn't have to get up with them, but I did have to set my "School Alarm" to get up and be a productive member of society and go to work.....
Well, all of that changed with September 2014.....I was a retiree! Yes, at 59 I decided that I'd worked enough and wanted to spend some time having "Peggy Days" every day and after much discussion with Al, I made the decision to retire early and enjoy myself. This will be the 2nd Labor Day that I
don't have to set an alarm for work and I have to say, this has been one fun ride! One I'm thrilled I'm on!
