If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a hundred times, it is so difficult to live your life once your husband retires. Well, my husband has been home part time for over two years and full time for about two months. I love having him home. We have a lot of fun. But today I was home alone. There is something to be said for having alone time. I got a lot done – straightening up, paying bills, doing filing and laundry. I did a little personal shopping and bought some food. I have to admit it was nice to do things at my own pace. But, you know, I could do it just as well with John home. I just need to say, hey, this is my agenda for today. I think that some of the people who complain about their husbands being home need merely to set their own parameters.
