to widget or not to widget??

 

It seems that my little white widget that I added to my blog has created a wee bit of a dilemma..

some think it is a bit too early in our plan to be counting down the days…yes the number is large..but what is deemed too large to start counting backwards?? 

I stole the idea from Harry and Jessica..

they had added  a countdown widget to their blog..counting down to  the day that they are going to buy their new home on wheels..I thought it would be a fun idea to use my earliest date that I can retire as our target date…

this is all in fun…yes, in the back of our minds we know it is a long way off…and we are okay with that….one adventure at a time for now will suffice…

yes, the plans are made of ‘jello’..but the dream is still there..we can only hope that it will all  fall into place once the timing is right..

‘have you ever tried to ‘ nail  jello to a tree?’..jello

well that is where our plan is at this time……

my blog is my online scrapbook….filled with what we do on a daily or weekly basis..how we are feeling?....sad or happy?..what we celebrate?…. the places we travel to?…and the friends we meet?…..and the pictures we take?..life is a daily adventure and…

for now it is filled with hopes and dreams…we know the reality of the situation…but please let us  count backwards for  now…we are counting slowly…and we are okay with that…

  1. First of all, I think that it's your blog so you can do with it whatever you like.

    Secondly, I don't think your countdown clock is too early. It is the earliest you can retire and it is when it is!

    Keep blogging!

  2. I like watching the countdown - I know there's still 2 years and change left, but that's ok. :)

  3. You can always count on a good count down to really count when your planning to retire on account of your counter in the right hand countable widget column.....signed by Sesame Streets, 'The Count:))'

  4. My two cents ... go for it ... keep the countdown going. I have no idea why some might be bothered by the fact that you started now. It's your blog; it's your life; it's your dreams; it's your memories ... the rest of us are all visitors here to share your excitement for the future.

    Yeah, life is a bowl of jello (not a box of chocolates :-)) and things may change ... but that's life.

  7. It's fine, the countdown gives you something to look forward to and to aim for. It's never too early to look ahead!

  8. I can't believe you received criticism for posting your countdown. What a spoilsport. Go for it, Sue and Doug, and be happy that you have dreams and plans. Loved your nailed jello picture! I used to have keep a cartoon posted which said: Raising teenagers is like nailing jello to a tree. So true!

  9. You do what is right for you and no one else..life is far too short. You are allowing others to control you when you use energy worrying whether you are 'pleasing' them or not!

  11. Keeping an eye on the target is the best way to focus on the goal. It is you blog, you can put what you want on it.

    Whoever has an issue with it clearly has to much time on their hands. :)
