Whenever I ask a senior or their family, "Who is helping with this?" The answer is normally no one. The reason is often because no one asked for help. * * I can understand why a senior doesn't want to ask for help. However I also know that not asking for help isn't the answer. * * When ever you ask any question you have a 50/50 chance of getting what you asked for. That's better than the odds of winning the lottery. I'll take my chances and ask for help. * * #freedom #enhancinglifewhileexcellingincare #help #seniorcare #mom #agingparents #dad #gettingold #support #grandparents #ask #50 #lottery #fear #conquer #family #seniormoment #care #qotd #alzheimers #dementia #chronicillness via @RiplApp

Just Quit Already: Day-by-Day Through Year One of Retirement. Day 17, Fri July 17: How To Read This Book. Everybody will have their own reasons for reading a book like this and their expectations and goals for what they get out of it. Some will simply be looking for light entertainment, or possibly great literature. Some are just in it for the sex. Others, I imagine, will hope for a How-To blueprint for retirement. Working gives a lot to your life. When you deactivate, you have to figure out ways to replace the parts of it that matter to you: paycheck, work-family relationships, and a regular routine that organizes your life. My own aim for retirement is to be healthy (very), wealthy (relatively) and happy (at all times, in all ways). If I were to give a few dicta (for retirement, but also for life in general) they would include: 1) Don’t Follow Leaders (except for me, of course). 2) Be Yourself (unless you are a real asshole). Be real. In retirement you no longer have to wear that mask and costume you wore for work all those years. (If that docile middle-of-the-roader was the real you all that time, then that would be super-weird but I have to also commend you, let’s hear it for transparency and continuity.) So, while I’m recounting the things that come up in my first year off the clock – one guy walk through . . .

Just Quit Already: Day-by-Day Through Year One of Retirement. Day 14, Tue July 14: Got up, puttered around. I think about getting my chainsaw serviced, buying a new wheelbarrow tire online and replacing the rubber treads on the stairs down from the workshop to the house. Instead of any of that, I spent a few hours decluttering my computer files: moving docs from place to place, deleting copies of jpgs. I started to try to figure out how to get some music from cassette tapes to digital format; I’ve got some tapes of bands I played in 35 years ago. (It will take multiple failed efforts and a couple of years, but I will eventually get this stuff successfully transferred. I buy a cheaply-made little gizmo online called an Ezcap that is the size of an old-fashioned Walkman; it lets you load a tape and a thumb drive and make the tape into digital. It seems like such a crummy piece of equipment that it can’t possibly work. But it does. Then I videos using Windows Movie Maker, using the audio and a bunch of still pictures of the bands and posters and so forth. Then I post the videos to You Tube. You can go on You Tube and search “Bart Becker” or “Pinky Black & the Excessives” or “South Street Shakers” and get a peep at what I was up to when I was around 30 years old.) There is nothing like a productive morning when the 10am sunlight is filtering through the trees and all of the doors are thrown open to make you feel like life’s worth living. . .

So, since I LOVE diffusing Lavender and Lemongrass together, I had a great idea to make me a spritzer with those two and distilled water. It is so refreshing!!

Just Quit Already: Day-by-Day Through Year One of Retirement. Day 13, Mon July 13: Talking about money – like sex, religion or politics – is vulgar and private. I’ll get around to sex, religion and politics in a while. An important retirement check-mark (though not the only one, by any means) is having your finances squared away – at least to the point that short-money isn’t a constant worry in your life. You’ve got to talk about it, at least with yourself, with your partner if you’ve got one, and with anybody else who is in the game with you on your team. The whole notion of retirement finances is a stressor, right? Eek, to put it mildly. But if you don’t deal with it going in, it will be a relentless affliction. Everybody’s situation is unique, so each person has to do their own version of what I did. So let me just say this: as usual, since this is Monday, I’m paying bills and planning to run errands. In with the bills is an envelope with my last paycheck from Bellevue College, mailed to me instead of automatic deposited, for some reason. So here it is, I will not see another paycheck. I know that much of what I’ve been writing about so far in this journal – lawn-mowing and drawer-organizing and walk-taking — is in one way kind of superficial and trivial, yet in another way very important to convey the downshifting that takes place when you bow out. These are the small things that will actually take up a lot of your time. Of course, whether I organize a drawer or not has very little bearing on whether I will have a happy 30 years of retirement. Being not-broke will. That’s why it’s important to deal with the more serious category when you separate from your job: the financial plan and medical coverage, and the incomprehensible stress-making nightmare that is Social Security. . .

I joined my disabled mother tonight at a seniors aerobics class. She kicked ass! And it was super fun because no one (myself included) could follow the instructor!

#ThrowBackThursday I Co-Star’d in a film with not 1 but 3 of my childhood heroes. Christopher Lloyd, William Shatner, & Don McManus. Dreams come in many shapes & forms. Drive & ambition help you achieve your goals. Believe me, I fought with all my might to get that role. So believe in yourself, stay true to yourself, & never doubt your heart or your goals.

Just Quit Already: Day-by-Day Through Year One of Retirement. Day 11, Sat July 11. Plum juice! I know, not as exciting as Mouse In The House! from a few days ago but it is today’s project. We have a backyard plum tree that every year looks pretty from the kitchen window when it is in blossom and produces a huge crop of purple plums that mostly go unused. When they are ripe we pick a few and eat them, but they are almost too juicy to be pleasant. Most of them fall to the ground and the deer wander into the yard for their own Plumfest. We also have a couple of fruit-bearing apple trees farther down the yard near the garden. Some of the apples taste OK but they can be kind of tart and most years they are kind of pithy. Maybe they don’t get enough water down there; it’s true that we count on them to be kind of self-sufficient which is probably not the perfect fruit-orchard policy. This year, though, we’ve got a Strategic Plum Plan. We will harvest them and make juice. A lot of philosophies that I believe in and try to practice roll into this: live lightly; refuse, reuse, recycle; go off the grid; self-sufficiency; eat healthy. For decades I have enjoyed gardening (though Enid is the main gardener around here now) and eating what I grow, but another one of my philosophies is to not labor too hard at it – I want the plants to do most of the work with just a little assist from me . . .

the hope is to sneak in a day in the studio tomorrow after my niece flies home ... I love this one because I used a new technique that was successful in achieving a more ethereal effect - I just can’t remember the technique so I can’t replicate it 🙁
Things Iris (my mother) says. My eldest daughter went to cut her Gramma M’s hair.

Just Quit Already: Day-By-Dat Through Year One of Retirement. Day 10, Fri July 10: One thing that is emphasized in all the books and blogs and advice about retirement – after the admonition to have your money lined up — is that creating a social network is important. Don’t forget to do things, they say. Preferably in groups. Personally I can’t think of anything more hideous than doing things in groups. But even I get the bigger message about not becoming isolated. That can’t be healthy, even for happy well-adjusted loners. Once that daily interaction with your work-family is gone it’s too easy to just stay in the house, pull the shades, and ignore that ringing phone. It can’t end well. I wouldn’t self-identify as anti-social or an introvert or a misanthrope (true, there are people I don’t want to be around but that’s for the factual reason that they are assholes) and I like to have fun. But, my family will readily tell you, I am also happy to skip a party, a reception, a gathering. Like anybody, I’m anxious that I not reveal my hidden motivations for this. Especially since they are also hidden from me. And, still, as Fay Wolf writes, countering my instincts, “You know who’re cool and great? Other human beings.” So, anyway, tonight we are walking up to the neighborhood Friday Night Potluck at the playfield just a few blocks from our house. . .

Just Quit Already: Day-by-Day Through Year One of Retirement. Day 9, Thu July 9: Mouse in the house! You don’t have to be retired to have domestic rodentia, but this is my reality. A couple of nights ago Nadia chased, played with, and tormented a little mouse that got into the basement hallway. Elena freaked out and I wasn’t too happy with the development myself. I’m the kind of person who will trap spiders and set them loose outside but this situation calls for a less kind-and-gentle remedy. . .

Just Quit Already: Day-by-Day Through Year One of Retirement. Day 8, Wed July 8: There are different ways of being well-off, right? You can have a lot of money. Or you can feel good about yourself. Not mutually exclusive, of course. For the past few years – ever since I got serious about retiring – I’ve been reading the books and articles about how to do it right. I’m not putting any pressure on myself, but I’d rather succeed than fail. A Forbes listicle on Facebook said these are the factors for a happy retirement. For the moment, we’ll assume Forbes is on top of things. I just started retirement, but let’s see how I’m doing: 1. See your children or grandchildren. I talk, text or message with my college-age daughter regularly, and see her often. Since I both like her and love her, it’s true that this gives me great joy and will continue to add meaning to my life. The bigger point here, of course, is that family connections, communication and social involvement are all healthy. My own family – my brother and sisters – gets along fine but we’re scattered and we have our own lives so we don’t get together too often. We’re not one of those families that talks every day. Or every month. . .

Some of us aren’t workout kind-of-people. Here’s a list that removes excuses. But, let’s start with science. • Walking, water & natural foods are essential for health + we must stay active. Calories are the energy (heat) created by a body “burning up” foods you eat or the energy required to perform activity. We need energy/calories to live. But, if we consume more calories in a day than we burn, the excess is stored as body fat. On average we burn 15 calories per pound of body weight (your weight x 15 = calories necessary to maintain current weight) About 3,500 calories equate to a pound. So, if someone wanted to lose excess fat, it requires figuring out how to burn or cut those calories that are above our ideal daily caloric consumption based on that 15 x our desired weight. • Each activity below is grouped by the # of calories (C) burned by that activity in one minute (CpM). Multiply this number by the number of minutes (M) being active & you’ll know what you’re burning. • Here goes: 1.5CpM: Resting, sleeping, sitting, reading, kneeling • 2CpM: Eating, playing cards, sewing, typing on a keyboard, dusting • 3CpM: Squatting without weights, standing, hand mixing a batter of ingredients, hand-peeling veggies/fruits, bird-watching, cleaning gutters, hand washing clothes, carrying laundry to the washing machine, carrying an infant, coaching • 3.6CpM: Walking around your house, showering. • 4.5CpM: Hanging laundry to dry, bathing a dog, ironing, house cleaning, electrical work, plumbing, gardening, carrying tools • 5.1CpM: Making beds, mopping floors, pushing a wheelbarrow, chopping, yard work, bagging leaves • 6CpM: Walking outdoors, walking down stairs, scrubbing floors, active housecleaning, shaking out rugs, drilling. • 7.5CpM: Walking up stairs, sawing wood, shoveling dirt or snow, stacking • 10CpM: Carrying heavy loads, carrying an average 2-year-old, most farming activities. • Bottom line: Whole foods, moving our bodies as often as possible, managing stress & healthy relationships strengthen our lifelines. Hopefully this list helps clarify “activity”! @DianGriesel @SilverDisobedience @WilhelminaModels @ApertureTalent @Stonesongnyc @gk_lolla

Just Quit Already! Day-by-Day Through Year One of Retirement. Day 7, Tue July 7: I mowed the back yard slope. It may not seem like much but it’s a workout for me; 45 minutes of dragging the mower up and down the hill and I’m sweating at the end. The yard tractor failed to start a few months ago and I haven’t had the repair guy out yet. I will have to push the tractor from my lower yard up the hill to the driveway where he can get at it, so that’s not top priority right now. I mowed the whole shebang a month ago with the electric mower (and twice on the lawn right near the house) and now it’s a nature meadow out there. Since it is super dry, the lawn itself has gone dormant, but I still feel like I should give the rest of it a trim, if only to beat down the dandelions. We live on an acre and, while a lot of it is covered with trees and native plants – salal and mahonia and ferns — there’s still a lot of lawn. Last time it took me two separate days of a few hours each to git ‘er done. I also plug together two 50-foot extension cords and get my electric weed whacker to the farthest corners of the yard to take down the rough out there. . .

Just Quit Already: Day-by-Day Through Year One of Retirement. . . . Around noonish, Elena and I went over to Lewis Creek Park. It’s a mile as the crow flies and four as we drive it. She ran a couple of miles hard and I walked two, hard, around the perimeter and through the cat tail swamps on the boardwalk. Then we drove the few blocks down the street to the Cougar Mountain Red Town Trailhead near our house and hiked four miles with plenty of elevation climb, about an hour-and-a-half all told. It was really a wonderful ramble through a beautiful forest, and a real good workout for me. It’s coolish and overcast. I’m wearing cargo shorts and a black Wailers T-shirt. We took a backpack with some nectarines and Kind Bars and trail mix and water and sat on boulders for a snack break at the point where we turned around and started back down. . .

Just Quit Already: Day-by-Day Through Year One of Retirement. Day 5, Sun July 5: Simple things, am I right? We get up and skim both Sunday papers, Seattle Times and New York Times, dawdling over breakfast I made of fried up onions and potatoes and turkey sausage and eggs. I like to read the actual paper, not the online. Remember a few years ago when everybody was getting a Kindle and “Books Are Dead” was happening? That played out pretty quick, almost faster than when I-Pods bloomed and died. I skipped Kindles the same way I avoided the whole I-Pod Era. Procrastination, mainly, I just never got around to it. I never felt any big empty space in my life because of it. And somehow, ironically, Kindles and I-Pods are now looking even more obsolete than me. . .

Just Quit Already! Day-by-Day Through Year One of Retirement. Day 3, Fri July 3: Oy! It’s hot in here! “Hot in hurr,” Nelly would say. I was already sweating at 9:30 in the morning. Everybody’s talking about how un-Seattle-like it is. Crazy thing, lots of past Fourth of July parties we’ve had to pull on parkas while eating our popsicles. The three-day holiday weekend starts today, which for me kicks off a three-thousand-day permanent vacation. For now, though, it’s 4 in the afternoon so Enid and I will take a walk and I’ll try to time things out so that I’m on the couch in a couple of hours to watch a couple of games.
