Like you, I am a lover of routines and I'm a list maker.

My routines and lists are much simpler and waaaaaay more fun now!

I have the best of both worlds. I retired but went back to work 2 days a week doing the same thing. DH retired Dec 31 and I leave him a list of things to do when I leave for work. I have even given him the shopping duties which I hate and he is doing a doggone good job of it. I like working 2 days a week and the income on top of my retirement check is super nice. And I can pick my days and hours since I am the boss. Nothing but fun here. I can do this for years. LOL Still can't teach him to turn on the vacuum cleaner yet but he does play with the dog so that is good.

Hubby and I have been enjoying retirement since 2002, and by golly, it gets better as the years pass.

We've both kept active and that's been a major contributor to our good health, albeit a bit overweight.

Hubby does have a heart condition, but each time he goes for his blood work, the numbers are good and/or getting better......that's because of his attitude which remains and always has been....positive and upbeat.

I'm 73 and he's 71, but we're a lot more active than a lot of our younger friends.

We're truly blessed!

It sounds like retirement will be filled with mixed blessings. LOL Yam - your DH sounds like mine - he and I can always laugh things out, so I imagine retirement will be the same - when he joins me in two years. We've been married 40+ years - I've put up with him thus far. AHEM... LOL AND him, me.

I worry about the long winters here and the fact I can hibernate in PJs so long that I think all my regular slacks have SHRUNK after a winter like that. I get a bit depressed during the winter as well - so a routine of FUN activities, and perhaps a day or two of work if need be, will be in my best interest.

I love hearing these uplifting retirement tales!! I started paying more attention to my health and weight loss in the past 10 years - trying to stay as active and healthy as I can. My DH has high BP, on meds - but for me - so far so good - no health issues. I do look forward to getting back to walking though - that will be first on my list of things to do when retired. Oh, that means I need to start walking THIS WEEK!

Sounds like you have him trained well, Adi! DH is not great at grocery shopping but I have him do it some times anyway. Then he has to live with the consequences. ha! He does vacuum. He can't figure out how to turn on the dish washer. lol.

You look SO YOUNG! I've told you that before. A great attitude, a good sense of humor and constant adventure. DH always says, "and the adventure continues!" every time we go somewhere. We still love trying new things, like kayaking in Hawaii last September. We are blessed to still have good health so we can do whatever we want. I feel sorry for people who wait too long to travel and then don't have the good health to hike around and see and do everything they want. Staying active is key to enjoying retirement. But so is resting and napping. It's all about pacing.

DH and I have been married 41 years. It gets better all the time.

Speaking of PJs... I'm wearing my comfy, red, Christmas pajamas. The shirt says, "Dear Santa, I've been good. (but not that good)" and an envelope addressed to Santa Claus, North Pole.

I've been known to get dressed, run some errands, come home and get right back into my PJs. I have a whole wardrobe of pajamas. Nothing better. DH owns about 5 pairs of comfy pajama bottoms. He has now adopted my strategy of wearing what we call our lounging clothes.

It really cuts down on laundry. My DD calls it our "uniforms". But when she is here, she loves having a pajama day!

In fact, sometimes on a Saturday morning she will call and say, "Is it OK if the kids and I come over for a pajama day?" She piles them in the car, all wearing their pajamas, and they come over for pancakes and a day of playing Scrabble and putting puzzles together. I love it. Maybe I'm a bad influence.

PJ day! I love it! I think it will take me awhile to cultivate the casual look though. And for my DH - he considers a PJ day, a lazy day - and NOT in a good way. Last Sunday I had a PJ day - of course, it's a mind set, but I didn't feel like I accomplished anything laying around all day.. .but then when I'm retired I don't HAVE to accomplish anything. See it is a mind set - I will grow my retirement mind set, and MANY things will no longer bother me - I'm sure.
And Adi - my DH is NOT well trained, dang I tried with more, but he will turn on the vac if threatened.... LOL... he does his own laundry, makes the coffee in the morning, takes out the trash, irons his own shirts, grocery shops a little if asked - hmmmm he's starting to sound pretty good. LOL I'll keep him another 40 years.

Just wanted to say that my cold from Christmas has resolved to this annoying dry cough too. I still have a bit of post-nasal drip, but not enough to warrant using the steroid spray (Flonase or nasonex, whatever), IMO. I think though that's what's keeping the cough around. It's not super bad, just a lot of ahem ahem, ya know?

The crying this week didn't help, but I'm avoiding that and now I'm back to regular annoying cough.

I did/do use the Hydrasense water cleansing stuff-- like a neti pot on jet spray (you can actually get different levels of pressure). This year was just ok, but last year, it REALLY helped me, got a lot of guck out, and I was a convert.
I bought it for this year's cold, but didn't find the same wow factor.
Just another tool in the never-ending battle against nasal crimes.

Not much else to report here. I think I've told the last people to know-- my house cleaning team. They come in and are like, where's the dog? So, now, that's done.
They say it will take a while to get all the fur out. I have to admit, I think I'm mildly allergic to dogs. I wonder if I'll notice any health differences going forward...

Slowly easing back into JUDDD lifestyle-- I haven't used my calorie counter, but will in the next few days, I think.

ttyl,
S.

Forgot to say that DH does laundry. If nothing else an old coach can do laundry as he has done it at work for 35 years. Football, basketball and rack uniforms all have to be washed . and washed. and washed. So he does that as well as loads the dishwashe and uns it but hasn't quite caught on to taking clean dishes out. But he tries.
Cooking _ NO.NO.NO. He would starve to death if he had to cok all of his meals. When he ran out of peanut butter and spoons he would be in trouble,

I am going back to lowfat as I cannot lose on high fat. It won't kill me and it might just help me break through and get back to my before Christmas maintenance weight. Not LC though. Having oat groats or cooked oat bran for breakfast. keeps me full until lunch so it is a start. Of course I decided to do this just when the hens started laying again since I put a light in the henhouse.

I do better on lower fat, too. Rolled oats with a little applesauce and a lot of cinnamon is amazing and sticks around forever.

That’s interesting. If I have low fat porridge I’m hungry again in an hour. A very small portion with cream or butter works better for me. The important thing is to find what suits you!

Between the two of us--me eating fat, and you eating lean, we should figure this out!! I think there's a riddle about that somewhere.

Frosty, what in the heck is that in your avi? Is the poor thing in pain, just born or what? I have trouble looking at it lol.

Just curious - are you talking about plain porridge with no sugar, made with water, whole grain? I thought it wouldn't last either but, for me, it does. I only add plain, no sugar applesauce (or home canned peaches) and cinnamon.

Of course, I also start with a full cup of rolled oats (not instant) and adding two cups of water, so maybe it's the amount we are talking here, too.

It's a kitty getting a bath in the sink (unwillingly). At first glance, though, he's doing a good impression of a gremlin.

I typically make it with half water, half milk. I use the water to do overnight soaking as per Nourishing Traditions. Sometimes I have a tsp of honey, but very little because I was always watching carbs.

Like I said, I was just curious.

I found low fat works for me but only if I keep sugar (table sugar, not stuff like fruit) to a minimum. Once the sugar enters the mix, I am a lot hungrier.

No, I don’t have it very sweet. I don’t have a particularly sweet tooth — though I do recognise that desire to keep eating more once I taste something very sweet.

The weather is awful here. It took over an hour to drive the seven mile commute home. Fingers crossed for a snow day tomorrow.

There's so much to read through on here. I took a little mental health break yesterday which meant no internet. So I'll be reading through posts for the remainder of the evening.

Uh oh. I bought some Barefoot "summer wine" that was on sale and it is sweet as syrup, with a little sparkle lol. I read the back to see if it was described as sweet, and it wasn't. I guess this bottle might (should) not get drunk (drank?). However, it probably will.

Adi, Goner & Yam-Yam, you lucky girls! Trained husbands, wow! I sometimes wonder what I'll do when DH retires. When he's at home he goes from chair to sofa to bed and back, in between being fed! And then says, "oh man, I'm bored, I'll have to work till I go to my grave"! I swear, he watches me when he's at home and thinks I do nothing (may be paranoia on my part)! He doesn't know how the dish washer works, no laundry, no ironing, no shopping, no cooking, nada, jilts! Food and tea served to him on the table! But to be honest he does work hard! So I feel very sorry for him and feel it's only fare that I serve him hand & foot as I'm home all day doing things my way! Mind you I was doing things this way even when I was working full time! Old Indian mentality and great expectations on his part, I suppose! I have been telling him lately, that when he retires I will too (from all household chores unless he helps)! However, when he's on call I have complete free days and I sometimes think our marriage survived 36+ yrs so far because of his working schedule! and possibly, because he is just a very nice man (sometimes); at least that's what everybody tells me!

Can you return it? I would consider it. Or maybe invite neighbors over for a glass of wine? A lot of people like sweet wine. In my neighborhood people invite one another over for a glass of wine frequently. (It's derailed my losses several times.)

Since I tried whole oat groats, I cannot go back to rolled oats. Love whole oat groats.

BUT 1/4 cup dry oat bran cooked in 1 cup of water with nothing added fills me up and surprisingly stays with me easily until noon. The oat bran works better than groats but either are good.

I have to be really careful with oats because they are frequently cross-contaminated with gluten (for example, Quaker Oats makes me sick every time), so once I found something that works for me, I stick with it.

The certified gluten free oats are too bloomin' expensive for what you get. That's interesting about the bran though. I wouldn't have thought that would be very tasty.

We have a pretty good division of labor but I'll probably still drive her crazy if I ever get to retire.

Or mix it with some juice and fizzy soda (club, sprite, etc) and you have a nice spritzer.

Aha, That's the difference, you dated and had to woo her. Ours was an arranged marriage, so I got handed to him on a platter!

There are times that doesn't sound all that bad.
