My mom had it rough. Fortunately she was smart and motivated and she did ok for herself. But she longed to retire while she was young enough to still travel. She absolutely loved going on cruises. And fortunately she took many and travelled extensively having seen so many wonderful places, that I can only dream of.
But she never got to retire. Her avatar on wordchums was called almost retired and she talked about it often.
But she couldn’t. It wasn’t feasible.
And I was thinking what sad fate that was. How she worked so hard for over 45 years, having to take care of herself and me and put herself through college, without any help at all. And she never got to stop working.
Just doesn’t make sense to me. But maybe I’m just easily confused.
