Wondering about dreams.

I know we all dream, but most dreams are not remembered. I have had some strange dreams lately that were so vary vivid when I woke up that I could remember every detail. For example, last night I dreamt that I was switching back and forth between a two dimensional existence and a three dimensional existence. After giving this some thought, I believe that I have been working too hard and too much. My work is designing and creating engineering drawings. I always build 3D models of a project first; then I can be sure that all parts fit as required and that there are no interferences. I then use the three dimensional parts and project them as two dimensional orthographic drawings, switching back and forth between 2D and 3D. So, I guess my dream is telling me I am spending way too much time working and need to go back to the retirement thing. Trouble is, I am committed now, but it looks like I only have another weeks worth of work at the most. Now, like one of my commenters suggested, I need to learn how to say “NO” to any more requests for work.

Actually I did take yesterday off after we got back from the doctor’s office. Took care of some chores and actually started to take care of some of the things that needed done on the new RV. Today, I will do a little work, but not as much as I usually do. There has to be some advantage to getting old, right?

You all have a great day now, you hear?


  1. Yes! There are advantages to getting old, I just can't remember them at the moment. DD, it sounds like you might have to make a break for it. Toss the wife and dogs into that motorhome and put the hammer down! Be careful getting out of the driveway, then hammer down.

  2. Good boy!!! Take a day off and begin to get your new wheeled home set up for a ROAD TRIP!!! :-)

    BTW,glad you learned the NO word.. BUT gotta be careful tying it on the wife :-)

  3. I think there is a fine line between too much and too little work for a retired person. When I have a project to do I feel much more alive than when I sit around looking at a computer or TV screen. The type of work you do is also sure to keep your brain cells in top shape. So I would say you are really lucky you can take a job now and then (or refuse it when you need to).

  4. Hey, i wanna hear about the doc's visit. A-OK?
    It being still winter, get all ur ducks in a row, hit the road soon. Spring time coming!

  5. I hope you take more time for your retirement,now while you can enjoy some lazy days. Take to the road,and see some of the world thru your windshield...have fun !!! Blessings Jane

  6. New experiences, especially way outside my comfort zone, give me vivid and crazy dreams. Now if I could only get some more sleep to have them.
