It's been a quiet Sunday, and I've just been hanging around and relaxing. I find it very relaxing to watch my son-in-law pushing the lawnmower around for an hour while I sit on the patio thinking about the old days when I had a lawn to mow, and how I use to wish I could sit on the patio and watch somebody else cut it.
Come to think of it there's a few other things that I'm glad I don't have to do any more. Like paying a bunch of bills for instance. Every month I would have a stack of bills to pay. I used to have to sit down and make out all the checks and get them in the mail. But now I've got three monthly bills, and I can pay those on the Internet in five minutes, it's so much easier and just one less thing for me to worry about.
I also don't miss having a dozen things to do every day, an appointment here, a meeting there, gotta do this, gotta do that. Nowadays there's very little that I have to do. Sometimes I can go for days without HAVING to do anything. I find it very relaxing when I can wake up in the morning and decide if I want to do anything or not. I know there's a lot of people that would probably go crazy living like that, maybe because they believe their self-worth is based on what they accomplish or what kind of job they have. I was never burdened with feelings like that. I guess I've always felt that I was contributing to society no matter what I was doing. Even now I'm helping keep the RV industry alive, I help keep state parks open, and I'm one less person clogging up the roads during rush hour. Come to think of it I might even be more valuable now than when I was working for a living, so for the sake of America I've got to keep doing what I'm doing.
