I remember you mentioning that this summer...
Hope you will find that "retired life" (if that´s what is on your mind) is nice to you and your getting-in-shape plans.
Say hello to Dan - I really enjoyed your company at the cottage before NAOC.
Thank you. I really did it. I've been contemplating it seriously for 7 years. I don't really want to 'retire'. I'd like to continue working (tho' not necessarily for pay) in some way. I'm looking forward to clearing out my head and figuring out what's next. We enjoyed having you at the lake. See you somewhere!
Good for you! Good luck with the next phase of your life.
@b. No trip to NZ. We decided we just weren't excited about it -- wait 'til Dan quits working so we can go for longer.
@m. Thank you. My head's in a bit of tumult and I expect it will be for a while. I'm looking forward to more freedom.
