We have a great " Honey Do" setup (in my mind of course).

She decides what and I decide when.....as long as it doesn't cost more to procrastinate! LOL

When I am asked that question. I reply, " I do absolutely nothing, and I don't even start that until after lunch"

Required retirement seminar for DH, several other soon-to-be retirees, and assorted spouses several years ago: the best advice for retiring was to develop a hobby or interest before the big day.

Doesn't matter much what it is, just so you don't find yourself (a) bored out of your skull and/or (b) developing health problems from being sat in that recliner all day and evening. Plus w/o meaningful activity, you'll drive the spouse nuts!

Insert whichever spouse you like, the popular saying is "If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!"

It's amazing what a variety of pursuits can be accommodated in an RV. Or at a picnic table. Or shared with others informally or via teaching a class.

Cheers!

I have been retired for approx. 1.5 years and now find that all the things I planned to do cost too much, including running my 40 foot diesel motor home or my boat: and I have a lot of difficulty dealing with all that unstructured time.

Had a fast-paced job that was 99% mental activity.
Gained weight.
Retired.
Now travel F/T and usually dont sit still to long.
We go to all of the historic sites and nature centers, mines, caves, etc we can find.
We make videos for a non-profit that hooks kids 7-14 on science. Giving back!
Lost weight.
MoHo stays pretty dirty.
Other than that, no time for honey-do stuff. To much fun to be had!

We dont even have rope lights!

When DW reminds me about the honey do list, I tell her "Look, when a man says he will do something, he will. There is no need to remind him every six months".

We always seem to have something to do. And here I thought we may get bored when we retired. It doesn't look like boredom will ever be our problem.

I think I saw this with a graphic of these retired geezers sitting on a bench in the park just talking and passing the time and one says to the other:

My wife asked me what I was going to do today and I said: "nothing"

She said: "you did that yesterday"

I said: "I am not finished yet"

I thought it sooo appropriate. Sometimes I feel like just doing nothing.

As a retrie I do "nothing", but I don't start it until 12:00 noon or after.
