I am restless. This condition seems to be firmly in control of me. I am not sure if this is something relatively new or whether it has long been a part of my psyche. (did I use that work correctly??) Despite keeping busy reading, walking trails, looking for birds, exploring backroads in the Strathroy area, working around the house, I find that I still have time on my hands. I have been “off work” for almost a month now due to my carpal tunnel surgery. And maybe the restlessness is just heightened because I am limited as to what I can do with one hand partially “out of service”. Next week I will be going back to work. But my intent is to only continue working until I turn 65 years of age. This will happen in February of 2013. It will be interesting to see how I handle real retirement. My reading project – reading all the works of fiction awarded the Pulitzer Prize since the year of my birth – will be completed in 2013. I’ll have to come up with a new reading project later next year.
For now I am going to stay the course. Just settle down. Breathe……..
