Word a Week: Figure – As in Numbers

My favorite numbers are on our fridge!

The countdown to when hubby retires is posted on the refrigerator. He started it at T-minus 61 bi-monthly paychecks. Although these aren’t artistic photos, they are illustrative!


When the one above got crowded, we started another. I just took this photo today. On Friday I’ll cross out 32 and write 31!

Down to 32

The countdown serves as motivation for the two of us, but also as a reminder to our kids that we’ll be gone and they’ll be fully on their own when we reach zero. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I drew this stick figure sketch on our white board a little over a year ago (hey, another form of figure!).


Do you have any favorite numbers in your lives? Ours change every two weeks… ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

As always I welcome comments on this or any other part of my blog.

    Truly so sweet, I love the childlike anticipation . . . although I suppose it’s not really childlike but more like . . . . senior-like! I swear on my life my husband is doing the same thing but not on the fridge. I find scraps of paper EVERYWHERE with numbers, and he checks his retirement fund daily. I have a feeling we will hunt you down one day in McCall.
