Hubby has retired!

I have a non-crafty blog today.  My husband has retired from his job at the newspaper after 38 years!  He was offered a buy-out and it was too good to pass up. That industry is failing more and more every day and although he's not quite old enough for Social Security, it was time.  The stress in the past few years were starting to affect him a little, and even though he absolutely loved his job  -  He's really happy now!

So, we'll see how things go.  He's already trying to get me out of my craft room.  And sometimes that could be a good thing, but not always!  And he is already planning to get me to de-clutter the whole house, and especially my craft room - Mercy Me!  I'm resisting like crazy.  But then again, I could use the help!

Hang in there with us, and I'll be sure to let you know as things progress (or regress, I'm not sure which).

Congratulations to your husband.I too retired before SS time but the stress was just too muchfor me. My hubby retired several years before so he was totally adjusted to retirement. Being together 24/7 is sometimes not too easy!! My goal is to declutter our home, I am still working on that!! Enjoy this special time together.

My husband has been retired for about five years now. I love it! He helps with the housework and leaves my craft stuff to me!
