Where Does the Time Go?


It’s been just over a week since entering the retirement/work at home ranks and I’m just wondering out loud…where does the time go? Is it really “Hump Day?” Does time have any context when you work from home? Do days just magically morph from one to the next with no impact on which is which?

Do you think it’s made a difference in Sam’s life? Yeah, me neither. Here’s wishing you all good things today and everyday. Happy Hump Day!


Live, Love, Bark! ❤

    I can’t speak for retirement but I can speak about working from home. I work for myself and about 75% if my work time is in my home office. Days do seem to run together at times but a meeting or two at a client’s office – especially if the drive is long – seem to help regain context with the worlds. It’s so great to have my Golden Kali at my feet in my office most of the day. And to have the flexibility – most days – to give in to her brown eyes which are pleading with me to get out for a walk or play time. Which of course I easily succumb to.

      Maybe if I start thinking of Sam’s sweet amber eyes as my new boss (‘please can I have a treat, please can I have a walk, please can you play with me,’ etc.), time will once again regain a hold over a reality of structure that will make sense. 😉



    Awww. How you doing? I have been with my dog Tula for many years now and I know how you feel. Just the other day you were running around and doing your job and now you are laying down in your dog bed thinking what happened. Tula feels the same way.

    You are still a very sweet dog.

    I’ve found I do everything slower in retirement…. Grocery shopping, chores, spending time over coffee or lunch with a friend. I wonder how I ever got it all done before AND worked?! The gift of time 🙂 Enjoy!

    I hear you – it’s a strange feeling when days begin to run together and almost unnerving after years and years of the office grind. For the next couple months I suggest you allow yourself to simply kick back and enjoy. Eventually you’ll start to focus on goals and organizing stuff you’ve always wanted to accomplish and by then, trust me, you won’t even care what Hump Days are! 🙂

    every day I wake up and think, what is the day of the week?? The concept of time changes, but there is so much more to be excited about after retirement, at least it was for me, that the days can be whimsical. Meaning, at my whim. LeeAnna

    From my own experience of retirement – there are no “here we go again” Mondays; no hump days; no “TGIF”s; no weekends; no Sundays; no deadlines; none of the work frustrations.

    So what is there? 7 days of doing whatever you want. They all flow together as you throw yourself into your retirement interests. 7 days of potential productivity. I never knew how much I wanted to do until I retired. Now I don’t know how I ever managed with a full time job!

    If retirement is morphing away the days, then let the morphing continue. I love it! 🙂
