Officially Old

Okay today I am officially old, 65 and on Medicare!
I can't believe how time flies by so fast. It seems like yesterday I was 15 years old and anxious to be 18.
The good thing is I don't have to pay that 400.00 a month for healthy insurance anymore:)

Beleive me since I retired in 2006 my days are not long enough. I thought retirement would be relaxing and travel and fun but instead I have a shop on Etsy that is successful, an artist network that keeps me hopping, two dogs that have a routine I better be on top of or they let me know about it, Etsy meetings with my friends, Zumba twice a week and a blog that is going to get more attention this year and life in general. I am very blessed and thank God everyday that I have my health and the capability to do all that is required of me each day.
Do I feel old? Not at all. it is just strange to say that I am now 65 years old when I feel like I am still 20.
Happy Birthday to me!

Well, 65 doesn't sound old anymore. I turned 62 in April and started to get Social Security. My job was cut when I turned 60 two years ago, and I took an early retirement. I had worked as a computer tech for 26 years and could start collecting since I turned 60. I have a couple of weird health issues, and often don't have a lot of energy, but like you, thank God that I'm alive and still kicking! Wishing you many more art-filled years ahead!
