Farewell Summer vacation

I’ve been retired for three years now, and I have the best retirement job ever. I live with my son, daughter-in-law, and four of my grandchildren. My son works a good job but has to travel a lot. 

My jobs include making sure my three grandchildren get to and from school and their different activities. I do a little cooking, a LOT of grocery shopping (Have you ever fed three teenagers? It’s work.), and a lot of driving. Plus a bit of housework, gardening, taking out the trash, etc.  Household stuff!

My brain was burned when I retired three years ago. I tried working a few part time jobs, but had to quit after a few weeks. An ex supervisor recommended that I try not to work for awhile. 

It was the best advice I’ve ever gotten. I moved in with my son, and over the last three years I have worked my part time retirement job as a house granny.

It’s fun, but busy. I’ve enjoyed summer vacation, staying up late and sleeping later in the morning. 

But that all changes after Labor Day! Time to get the kiddos to school every day. Summer is almost over, and I’m glad. I’m able to keep busy without the stress of a full time job. And I can take breaks during the day to read, play my online games, and have fun with our dog. 

Farewell summer vacation, and hello fall!
