“ It’s Light Out and She’s Still Home, Yea! ”


                                             Mom, You’re home!


It feels soooooooo goooood to stay at home, although I have my work cut out for me.  So far I have gotten the paperwork done for the Medicare Part B, supplemental insurance, and registration for my truck and fifth wheel. 

I think that the hard part for me will be going through all my ART things, yet again.  Ted took all the extra tools, so they’re gone.  I have to dispose of the note cards that I didn’t sell last November.  I have a lot of supplies too.  Much of that will have to go as well.

Yesterday, I went the Pleasanton RV Show with Bob and Dee from church.  Bob has also recently retired.  They have family back East and are considering buying an RV for their trips back to PA.  They are at the stage now where everything runs together.  Going through all the new models was nice, although I didn’t see anything that I liked better than what I have now.  There was one Big Horn model that I liked (not better, but almost as much.  It had a salon in the front, upstairs with a 50” TV and the bedroom downstairs in the back.   Very nice.  I was a bit disappointed that they didn’t have any seminars or RV related vendors.

Angel is liking me being home.  I know that she doesn’t like riding in a crate in the truck, so I thought that I would try a harness that the seat belt goes through.  She seems to like it better and doesn’t show as much anxiety.  


    Not a great picture, but she is happy, next to me and is up high so that she can see.

Retirement + one week and so far things are going good.  Still a lot to do, just one day at a time and one duck at a time.  I will soon be out there on the road and enjoying my new lifestyle.

Thanks for visiting

Susan and Angel


  1. Good for you Susan! Am so proud for you! And Angel is adorable. Glad she likes the harness. Tried one with my babies one time and Nonni almost choked herself to death trying to get out of it before I could get it unbuckled! They each have their little personalities, don't they? Congrats on the one week anniversary.

  2. We have seat belt harness for our two rescued cocker spaniels. Keeps them from being flying objects or running free in case of an accident. They love being able to sit or lay down and travel like troopers. The retirement only gets better.

  3. That is a GREAT photo! You both look so happy. I mean, look at that expression on Angel's face! That's one joyful pup!

  4. Isn't retirement just the best ever? You're just going to love it more and more. We use harnesses on our girls. They hated being in crates. Good luck with the purging of stuff this week.
