I have 2 grandchildren who I watch during the week and work part time. I also own a Pet Sitting business.
I really enjoye the pets. My customers always tell me their pet's bad habits and worry when they leave them. I always say, don't worry they will be fine I am a stranger and they behave better with strangers. It is true cause I never have had a problem in my years as a sitter with behavior. I guess because I am good at what I do.
I enjoy my flower gardens more now that I am only working part time because it does take up a lot of time but it is worth it. I took a stained glass course and I dabble in that.
I like to take photos of everything. Lucky things are now digital and it is a lot more convenient I store everything on the computer which I think is so awesome---just remember to back up everything.
I have friends that don't want to retire and could, They feel they will be bored. I have so much to do everyday I am never bored. I can always find something to fill my day. I do stay very busy. Don't get me wrong I do take a day to VEG out every so often.
