Well, it's a new day, with a new perspective! Time for life to get back to normal. My husband is semi-retired as of this morning . . . and I could not be happier! He has worked very hard as a pipe-fitter for the last 39 years and he deserves to have a little down time. I'm not sure if putting in new kitchen cupboards and flooring is downtime, but it's a change from what he was doing, and he's home . . . not getting up at 4:30 a.m . . . and coming home at 6:30 p.m. . . 6 or 7 days a week! I know that this change might be kind of hard for him, but it's still a well deserved break.
This says it all!
"If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles."
I hope he gets to do a lot of this!
