On April 6, Joan Zachary (that would be me) will retire from her job at Martin Guitar, in Nazareth, PA, where she has worked for the past nineteen years. I’d planned on making it an even twenty, but it’s time for a change, and I’ve been made an offer I can’t refuse. Plus, spring is here, can summer be far behind?
I keep hearing that “retirement is scary.” More than one person tells me that apparently I have the guts to do something they just can’t bring themselves to do. “I need a little more money.” “I’ve got too many things on my calendar that I just have to see through.” And my personal favorite: “What am I going to do with myself all day?” Yes, all those things have crossed my mind, too. But I’m taking the leap anyway. So there.
Well, what am I going to do with myself all day?
I’ve never written a blog before - but then again, I’ve never retired before, either. It’s an adventure, right? Come back again soon and let's enjoy this ride together.
