Congratulations on DH's retirement.

Can I trade you some fabric to loan out DH? I could use his help around my home!

Well Good for him... it's better than moping aroung wondering what to do next eh... I hope he finishes that job before he starts another though... this is something to keep an eye on, me thinks?

OMG, can't imagine DAY 2! Excellent for an old guy who is retired.

Penny said...

I know you are proud of him and happy for him - we are too! Seems like a good guy! Way to shake that hula hoop, baby!

Congrats to the DH. Such a cute post. I hope day 2 is just as productive as day 1

Excellent. The man with a plan.

I'm determined not to let Keith retire (not that he's close to retirement age) but it looks like your husband knows how to entertain himself (unlike Keith).

OH! don't say a word,, let him get all the projects done!
I have been off for 5 months and I don't feel like I accomplished a thing!!
now it's back to work for me -- enjoy your sleeping in and just let that great man of yours do all his projects... then send him my way!

And you told me he wasn't handy - lol. Happy Retirement to you both!!!!

At least you know he will stay busy, lol. I plan to do what you did! Only 10 more months, sigh.

Looks like he's getting lots of things done around the house. What's next?? :)

Jane said...

Hmmm... could be good to stay busy, but don't let him get all of his old to "do list" done at once. My hub retired 3 years ago... MY life has not been the same since, thank goodness we love them or else.
