My husband and I are off today--well, I'm sort of "off." I have to teach piano in about 45 minutes. I have three students this evening, so that's not really what I call "work." One lady I teach is 60 years old--a little younger than me. I love teaching her because she appreciates learning so much. She is about through with Book 1 and ready to go into Book 2 and she is so excited.
This morning, we had to go to the Social Security office. Both my husband and I retired "early" at 62 and really were not ready for the hassle of only earning so much per year. Needless to say, we both went over the limit and things have gotten complicated. But I think, from now on, we might be okay. Who knows with the government? My husband actually over-estimated his income, so they owe us money. Wonder when we will see that?
Anyway, we went out to Cracker Barrel afterwards for breakfast, and that was good. I am trying to get ahead with my Etsy items so that I don't have to rush around and make something if I happen to sell it. I don't know why, but I've been selling on there lately. There are many dry periods--especially when I don't pay attention to it. To be successful on Etsy, one needs to post a new item every few days or at least once a week. It only costs 20 cents for each post, so it's just the hassle of keeping up with posting.
This afternoon, we watched the movie "The Sixth Sense" for the first time, and it was a little different, but good. And "Poof", my day is just about gone. I really wasted some time today, but it was fun. Oh yes, I did finish up my laundry and we did go to Sears this morning and look at all the flat screen TV's that are on sale for great prices--$139 for a 19"! I want the $1,600 TV that is 52" and has the internet, of course.
Well, I'd better get going before I'm late for teaching--and now it's raining outside. It was sunny this morning. Hope you are all having good days.
