Papa’s World – making DREAMS into reality!

We all have thoughts of success

Buying a house

Owning a new car

A second vacation home

And then you realize – the years have passed you by

and you still are dreaming

AND YOU ASK YOURSELF WHY?

FIRST : Write that dream down with a DATE!

We tend to overthink and then think some more

but writing it down with a DATE

It then becomes

A GOAL!

SECOND: Take that GOAL

and break it down into STEPS!

Now you have before you a road to follow!

A road to follow has become a PLAN!

You are no longer just thinking about it or talking about it –

You are following what you yourself have set out before you.

Once you start following your own PLAN

You have devised a ACTION!

One – you did yourself.

You are the one to depend upon

You are the one who set a goal

You are the one to take the steps

You are the one to form the plan

You are the one who is taking action.

YOU HAVE TURNED THIS DREAM INTO REALITY!

And CHARACTER – will draw like people to your purpose.

WE HAD A DREAM AND HAS NOW BECOME A REALITY

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY

Papas World – It is early – I look around – almost done!

It is early Thursday morning – I awoke at 3 am.!

Too much on my mind!

I look around – the car is packed

The next to final trip to Tammy and Marcus house

where we will establish a home base.

Then one more trip to the storage unit –

and finally the last trip – lock up and leave

We are changing – evolving – dreaming

a new adventure awaits – it is fun selecting places

seeing rentals – looking at real estate for sale!

We will go to where our eyes take us

but stay where our heart finds home!

We will seek warmth – sunshine & golf!

It is finally time to do that!

Living in NVA is $$$$ to golf!

Owning a home in NVA – well taxes are high

as is the HOA – and while we love our dream home

At our age – maintaining it is costly.

New roof – trim painted outside – new HVAC

A new fence was on the horizon –

Our home I must say is nearly perfect

The lawn I was told looks like Augusta National!

New Bamboo flooring – new fridge –

But we loved it and the way of life.

I guess it was the pandemic and the stock market that gave us thought.

Now was the time – the value was up and the market strong.

We have choices – places to live –

friends and family to visit

and God willing – grand daughters soccer to watch.

Once again we will laugh with the friends we have held close

for almost 38 years.

She will continue her home based internet business

Health – family – nutrition where ever we go.

Yes – I look around – almost finished – today I watch Bode

Sherry will help Tammy who is getting ready to reopen her store

529Kidsconsignment – closed because of the pandemic.

Taylor and Cassidy have tennis lessons

Yes – I was up early – yes I look around – time for coffee –

Almost done – almost 14 years here –

our dream home – now another dream begins

Thank you for reading Papa’s World

WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!

DREAM ON – I am awake now – time for coffee!

Papa’s World – weekend ? In retirement you count the days by Garbage !

I never imagined – back when – as I neared retirement – I would sometimes not remember what day of the week it was ! Nor – would I ever wonder – with the hours of each day – “HOW DID I EVER FIND TIME TO WORK”?

You want to stay Young ? You want to stay active ? To do that – at least I find – the way I remember – is that Monday night is put out the GARBAGE – and pick up is Tuesday ! Now – that I remember for some reason. Also – I know it is Monday – because that is the day Tammy – our daughter – closes her store up , Kids 529 Consignment shop ! So – she does not work that day – and in the school year – I do not pick up the twins from school.

Bode – Cassidy and Taylor- Tammy & Marcus little ones.

The rest of the week – each day – I go and wait in a car line to pick up the girls – and I get there early – so I am usually second in line – and the line when school is out is about 70 or more cars ! So – I am prepared – I take my water -maybe a snack- a pillow – and leave the car on – it is a Hybrid so it mostly runs on the battery. I kick the seat back and turn my favorite radio show on – 106.7 – the Sports radio show that covers the D.C. area.

Sometimes I even drift off for a power nap!

Cassidy – Bode & Taylor 8 – 4 – 8 years old.

That takes me up to Tuesday – garbage day and pick up the girls day. Wednesday is take the twins to choir day – and meet Granny -( Jennie )- Marcus mother – who picks up Bode every day from preschool.

She takes him home and when Marcus is done – he picks him up and then will come to our house and pick up the twins.

But – Wednesday is church choir and all three sing – even Bode who can not read but will memorize the words and they are good singers.

We now have covered Monday thru Wednesday . Thursday – I start preparing again for garbage day – but also recycle day – by setting everything out for pick up on Friday !

At National Harbor – Washington D.C. Sherry’s shirt says it all!

There are also days that we will journey into D.C. for special trips – taking all the grand kids – we took the two oldest – Maddy and Ella – and got off at Arlington – took in the Tomb of the Unknown soldier and then walked across the 14 th. street bridge and spent the day at all the memorials – walking the Mall and having lunch. We walked miles that day and they loved it.

So – that leaves Friday – the day the GARBAGE & RECYCLES are picked up. I count the days by that format – very seldom do I know the exact date – I can look at the top of the paper – or my phone.

On Oahu – North Shore NO CARES – NO WORRIES #livinglifetotheplus

But to be perfectly honest with you – being retired – it does not really matter – I also count down days by what we have scheduled coming up ! Yes -we PLAN- put it down in writing – search and research – add names of visitors to come – the dates and what we are going to do. Some people can not do that for whatever reason – but not us – WE DO IT! Such as so goes our life – we live life to the plus one day at a time – but we know what is ahead – after all – for us – that is part of the excitement – just like little kids – “HOW MANY SLEEPS ARE LEFT PAPA ” ?

And then the early morning comes and you head out – all part of that special time – now I look back – and I wonder – JUST HOW DID I FIND TIME TO WORK ?

RETIREMENT – YOU COUNT THE DAYS BY GARBAGE – the weekends – well they are just another day -most times you just do not care !
