I’m starting out August working 10 days in a row ... which will pretty much take me to mid-August, come to think of it. When I was young—ahem, younger—that kind of schedule wouldn’t have phased me a bit.
But now I’m old … er. Still, it’s all part of my plan: to make overtime and get my bills paid down, so that when I qualify for full retirement, I can just sit back and go to work writing.
A “full retirement” in which I still need to make money may seem ironic, but what am I supposed to do? Spend all my time playing with power tools in a wood working shop? I have only so many fingers.
