The upside, if there is one, to insomnia is how much time one has to think. I try, repeatedly, to return my thoughts to singing the same ABC song over and over again but sometimes I “squirrel”.
Last night’s thought process centered around the fact that evenings and night call are taking a toll this weekend. But the plus side is that it’s only 4 shifts and I’m now counting down in weeks till my retirement from full time.
My thoughts then flipped to the fact that we will both be celebrating our 60th birthdays which then scrolled over into parties. Thoughts about retirement then surfaced and I ended up thinking about projects and pluses. The first two events are semi planned, sort of. The projects and pluses I was just rambling in my head about. The plan is to do a full post about 60 pluses to being 60 so it might be a while before I can pull that together. The 60 projects I’m keen to start next January. It might take me till next January to figure out what all I want to do in the next 5 years as I work part time. I think, knowing myself, that it’s important to keep some focus and routine. I’m 100% certain I won’t be bored.
So stay tuned here over the next few months. Feel free to leave comments about 60 thoughts on 60. A few regular readers have reached that demographic already so their wisdom and experiences will be good food for thought. I’m 100% certain though that I won’t be taking up calculus to fill up my time like my cousin did.
Totally weird — this is not what I intended to blog about today but it’s what I wrote. Squirrel moment I guess.
