Q. I recently retired. My wife and I went on a trip for a month visiting our kids who live around the country. Then I did some home improvement projects that I had been putting off for years. Then I read three books. What do I do now?
This is a common experience of new retirees. For your entire life, you have gotten up, taken a shower, dressed in work clothes, grabbed your briefcase and headed off to work. Suddenly, every day becomes a weekend. But, there is hope for you. There are a myriad of activities and opportunities to fill your time.
There are many things to see and do right here in Los Angeles. Come to the Crescenta-Cañada YMCA at 2 p.m. March 22 to hear a free presentation by ASTER (Assisting Seniors through Enhanced Resources) on local opportunities. There will also be a presentation by Dr. Dennis Chang on staying healthy while you travel.
