Hi, I'm Rich, aka Older Guy. I'm depressed today. I don't seem to be able to come up with a plan for today. Actually I do but it's a pretty limited one. I guess that's ok. I'm in retirement for about 3 weeks now and am still learning the ropes. I just re-read one of my old posts where I said, "just get up and shower and get dressed". I need it (smells body), haha.

Then I will eat something and take a nap. Afterwards I will garden a bit. That's enough for one day.

One thing I want to add, I have a chat room I go into at night. It is starting to be boring. I guess I can change my mind, watch a movie or something, and maybe not chat every night. It's just not that interesting to me anymore.

Thanks for listening.

HI Rich,

Sounds as if you are doing well working on self advocacy.

Might I suggest, watching something that gets you laughing out loud. I watch something once a week to be sure a get some good laughs. Good medicine. I do not get laughs from hubby too much right now, 'cause his Mom is 86 and had a stroke. But he will watch with me. Last night we watched The Stooge!

Getting outside for just 10-20min is great, does more good then we know.

Keep up the good work!
Peace

Have you considered playing Solitaire or Poker on your computer?

I play solitaire BLAST, and Puzzly Words.

However, I like Soduko and Crossword book better, if I am not doing Art, practicing piano, journaling, reading or crocheting....oh and sewing.

Currently I have hemming a gown for a friend of my mother-in-law. The woman is sweet-heart, so happy to do it for her.

F27, note from other post; I rarely just sit and watch TV, usually I am crocheting or sketching. Cant just sit and watch. Goes back to childhood, it is a no-no. Working on though. Watched Key Largo last month, and did nothing.. Well Maverick was on my lap. Does cuddling a dog count?

Peace
