I remember those days (3+ years ago now). The last few years before I retired I felt that way very often. However, once I set my retirement date and gave my ~3 month notice, that seemed to go away. Now it's just a distant memory.

The view out back is still pretty nice...
When I was still working, every time I read a post like this, my heart was filled with excitement, and a bit of impatience. Now, that I've ER'd, I can relate, with great joy, to every word FlyBoy5 wrote in this post. Thank you FlyBoy5 for posting. This morning I lay on my sofa, with my old dog draped across my belly, and I was thinking of the John Lennon's quote something along the line of ...The time we enjoyed wasting was not wasted time.... How true. It was one of the BEST mornings of my life and nothing spectacular or unusual happened.

I simply had the time to walk around in pajamas, made and enjoyed my coffee, pet my dog and told him how handsome he is and that he's such a healthy boy for his age, and then I enjoyed lounging around on my sofa while reading quotes attributed to John Lennon. Another glorious morning in ER.

My pleasure! Look at that...I DID accomplish something today. Never mind the fact that it's almost 5 PM and I am still wearing my pajamas!

And I don't think our old junkyard dog has been out of the bed YET today!
