That I retired. But today marks ten full years that I've been retired. Hard to believe, but true.

And I've lived in my current "new" house over eight years now.

It is amazing how time has sped up as I have gotten older.

When I was a kid, it seemed like forever between major events.

As a teenager, I was oblivious to keeping time.

Once I was in my 20s and was working and had a child, time really accelerated. And it seemed like overnight my child would get a year older.

Now it is going so fast that my head spins. I have been married to my "new" husband for 8 years and I feel like we just got married.

Congratulations on your retirement!
