How do retired people remember the date and the day of the week? I find that the days tend to run together right now. Perhaps the morning paper, or the morning news checks on the Internet provide the necessary clues? Or do people check off days on the calendar, or tear off a page in the 365 day calendar every morning? It's definitely a weird sensation not to have my life based on which days are spent at the office!
But my freedom will probably be ending soon, assuming the Special Session is called and results in a budget that is reluctantly agreed upon by both parties. No one is happy with it, but something has to give. Three weeks will be enough time to be out, and I will always remember it as my "practice retirement".

Weather is Oh So Hot here right now, and far more humid than we are used to. Or at least used to be used to. Our weather patterns have changed so much it's hard to know what is normal. Anyone who does not believe in "climate change" has their head in the sand.

|New sofa and floor plan|
Coral is having some trouble adjusting as that room had been exactly the same for many years. She stands and stares at the sofa which occupies the spot where her dog bed used to be, and refuses to sleep in the dog bed in its new location. I put Argus's small bed (that normally sits by my computer) in the family room and she has claimed that as her own. Hope she and Ron both get used to the new look!
