Another weekend is upon us. It is actually a long weekend for me as I took off work today to take care of some personal business. I started out with my early morning walk and then got my car serviced. Then it was a trip to the retirement office to start some paperwork. I am seriously considering retiring my the end of the year so it is time to get some straight facts about my pension amount, cost of insurance and numerous other details. This was followed by a quick shopping trip to pick up essential items. That filled the morning so in the afternoon I pampered myself with a nap.
