Wow, it's been a week since my last posting... I wonder if I've lost my audience? :-)
Life goes on for me: lots of little projects, lots of exercise (biking at least a half hour every day since the nice weather started, workouts every night) and quite a bit of thinking about the future because I've been offered (and accepted) a bit of an early retirement at the end of the year. It's great that I am able to make my retirement decision based on what I want to do rather than what I have to do. Just over a year ago, before the procedure, I didn't think I would be able to work this last winter. Now I'm retiring on my own terms, and am looking forward to enjoying the rest of my life: enjoyable projects, travel and catching up on all those books I haven't read and movies I haven't seen. The future? Bring it on!
