I think it's Thursday

Out of the Loop Dept.

Got out of bed, dragged a comb across my head and tried to figure out what day of the week it was. This has happened occasionally since I stopped working for a living and I usually figure it out before I brush my teeth. But this morning, it took me awhile and I still was not sure until I fetched the newspaper and checked the date!

On a similar note, weekends have lost their luster since I stopped working. I much prefer going out on weekdays when the adults are at work, the kids are in school and most of the people I run into are old men and ladies like me!

High Heel on the Other Foot Dept.

“In a parallel universe” is a series of fictional images, recreated from real ads in the mad men era, that question modern day sexism: showing it through a humorous light to spark a conversation through role play. Here is the link to this creative Madison Avenue gender role reversal:

  1. My Dad used to "complain" that once he retired, he no longer got a vacation. He was always retired and didn't even have the weekends off to recover.

    I feel his pain...

  2. Yeah, when I first retired I had the same problem and then after awhile you realize that it doesn’t really make a difference what day it is. I have an app that reminds me of appointments and meetings a day in advance and two hours before the meeting and that is all I really need.
    I had a reminder this afternoon for the photo club meeting at the senior center tomorrow.

  3. Going to church on Sunday morning and Wednesday choir practice keep me straight what day of the week it is. And since I'm the only bass singer in the choir I MUST attend.

  4. One advantage of being retired is you rush because you want to not because you have to

  5. Ah, the joys of retirememt. The best one is when the wind is from the west, I can hear the traffic build up in the early morning and turnover for another hour's sleep or whatever!

  6. I bet you are motivated to 'get up and go' when its time to 'go enfemme'
    Welcome to Groundhog day (the MOVIE, Not the 'holiday'.)
    You need a schedule, here is my retirement schedule:
    1) Get up just in time to watch 'The View' and laugh when the panel beats up on 'The Donald'.
    2) Drive to Po-dunk NC and find lunch/brunch...
    3) Check the QVC channel to view the MAKEUP TUTORIALS/SALES shows.
    4) Check 'Stephen Colbert' and laugh when the monologue beats up on 'The Donald".
    5) It is now 12:30am and now the next days 'Femulate' blog is probably posted, so enjoy...
    6) Watch Seth Meyers and laugh when monologue beats up on 'The Donald'.
    7) Share light snack with the cat, before bed..
    8) Repeat as required.
    Always remember: Schedule the work, work the schedule!
    Relax, and dont stress. NOBODY lies on his deathbed wishes that he had spent more time at the office.
