On a humid Nebraska summer afternoon the elk at the Wildlife Safari knew exactly where to be to combat flies and heat…..half in, half out, of the water.
I think my husband is feeling a bit of the same this week….half in and half out. Although his retirement ceremony was Monday morning, for a variety of reasons he’s still working for another few weeks. In many ways, that made the whole thing much less emotional for us. We have a few weeks to ease out of this way of life and by the time we drive off the base for the last time on active duty, like these elk, we’ll only be concerned with what to do to while away a hot summer afternoon.
For a while at least…..he keeps telling everyone he’s going to be my full-time life coach. I’m thinking he needs to find his next “real job” really fast!
