Oh Boy!!!! I can't wait for the NEW you...although I think that the OLD you was pretty cute!!!!

Don't throw away those Ann Taylor Separates YET. I'm still working and don't have a thing to wear!!!

BTW....I went to the 1/2 price sale at the GoodWill Store today. It seems like a whole new place when you are looking for wild belts and tight jeans. Check it out after you drop off your Old Ann Taylor stuff at my house!!!!

Really....I might fit into SOMETHING!

Thank you for your honest discussion about retirement and our connection to our past careers. I have been retired for about 2 months and it is the hardest thing to adjust to. I remember the first time someone asked me post retirement "what do you do for a living?" I started to panic. I felt like I had lost my identity! But I went home and took some time to continue reflecting on why I retired and the "to do" items on my list and felt instantly better. I too am looking for a place to use my prior skills in the volunteer field and look forward to something new and challenging! And I LOVE not having to wear heels and having time to work out and wear work out clothes instead of business clothes! I feel very blessed to be able to be retired and have the time to pursue new adventures! Thank you again.....

Thank you Joyce for your comment. Good luck at discovering the new you!
