> I must admit that I haven’t been reading many books lately because of the move. But I’ve been reading magazines, which is my ‘go-to’ reading when I travel. It seems like a splurge to read magazines, although I feel that the overall content found in magazines has changed. I’m beginning to wonder if it’s time to give up magazine reading and pack books (even though they’re heavier).
> We have a contract on our home, moved our belongings in May, and settled into our rental house. It’s been an unsettling few months, but we’re ready to start our new adventure in Gainesville, Florida. I’m sure the next few months will involve developing new routines but I’m confident we’ll be able to do it.
Working On| Unpacking boxes
> While we’re officially living in our rental home starting in May, we still have some boxes to unpack. Something tells me that we’ll be in a perpetual state of unpacking for months. LOL! Just in time to pack up the rental and move into our forever home. It’s not perfect, but at some point, we’ll be happy that we did it. And that it’s over.
Remembering | Water
> We haven’t been gone from Fort Lauderdale a month and we already miss the water. Oh yeah, it was just a little manmade canal behind the house, but it was nice. Our view in Gainesville is lots of trees and those are nice too. But it’s not water. I’m sure we’ll learn to appreciate the trees over time.
Watching| Avengers: Infinity War
> Our first movie in Gainesville was this one (You’ll find no spoilers here!). Regal Cinemas just opened a new luxury theater nearby with a bar, upscale food items, and recliners. We discovered this theater concept a few years ago…and wouldn’t think of going to any other kind of theater.
Planning| 2019 Planners
> I know, right?! It’s only May and we’re not even halfway through 2018. But I’m starting to accumulate dates for 2019 events that I need to remember. The question is which one. This year, I’m using an Erin Condren Life Planner, which is good for this year. I need to spend some time thinking about 2019 and my needs. If you have a planner recommendation, leave it in the comments.
Loving| Frank-N-Furter pin
> I’m a big fan of the Rocky Horror Picture Show (RHPS). In my younger days, I was one of the shadow actors during the show. Today, it’s a Halloween tradition at our house to watch RHPS and eat sloppy spooky joe’s. A Facebook friend posted some RHPS jewelry, and I couldn’t resist!
> I must admit that I’ve been late to ride share services. But I started using Lyft recently to get from and to the airport and have been really impressed! Nice drivers, clean cars, and good prices. If you’ve never used Lyft before and want to give it a try, you can use my code UNRETIREMENT. It should get you a discount, and me a little thank you.
What’s UP with you? Got any plans for the summer?
