Only a week's worth of Mondays until I retire.
For every one thing I won't miss, there are several that I will. This insight is so overwhelming that I'm almost considering not retiring. Almost. But then I think about compulsory Monday mornings.
For each remaining Monday I'll list what I will and won't miss about the last 25 years of 40 hour work weeks.
#1. Rush hour driving.
The competition for asphalt. I used to walk and take a bus when I lived in the university area. Those were the best days. These days I "hyper-mile" down the valley and stay below 35mph. This contrasts sharply with how we drove before - fast and furious. But now I take pains to avoid the old me and really really really look forward to driving once a week instead of twice daily.
Next week: #2. Trapped in Views from a tall building.
