Nice and sunny here this morning. Looks like a nice day shaping up. I'll take it. This morning, when Rick's cell phone alarm rang, we lay there for a couple minutes. Rick said, "I understand why people retire." I could be wrong, but I'm thinking that day is coming soon for him. He is going to start collecting SS in June. I wish he would retire; he's worked a long time and I'd like to see him relax for a while. (I keep thinking of our friends; he waited so long to retire because his wife kept wanting him to work to buy this, to buy that, to do this, to do that. He was finally able to retire last year and now he has Alzheimer's. It's heartbreaking. He was one of the hardest-working men I've ever known and now that he can finally retire and enjoy some of his life, he can't remember sometimes how to find his way up the steps from the basement to the kitchen. Honestly, I would be fine if Rick retired today. I wish he would.) So anyway.... Breakfast for the kids, emptied the dishwasher, scooped the boxes, took the recycling to the basement, made the bed, some general clean-up, etc. I have to go out to the garage during lunch today and pay the guy for picking up Clarence at the house the other week. He finally called me yesterday and told me how much I owe and I want to get him paid. He told me not to worry about it, that whenever was good enough, but I want to get it done. I hate owing people money. Planning Commission meeting tonight. We have two plans to review and both of them have some problems, so it's going to be a long one. Go home and crash. I'm getting to the point where I don't even turn the computer on anymore when I get home from work.
