Trying to get everything else done so I can work harder at my main hobby. Processing alcohol into urine.

What to do?

Liquidate real estate.

Purchase a condo in a state that does not tax pensions and retirement income.

Purchase another condo in a gated community around a championship golf course, on the Caribbean.

Lease a yearly site for your RV.

Go south in the winter, north in the summer and travel spring and fall.

Drink heavily.

I thought it sooo appropriate. Sometimes I feel like just doing nothing.
Look at the first post of this thread! LOL

RETIRED is a state of being that seems to need no definition...

There are always those things that MUST be done...

There are those people that feel ALL THINGS MUST BE DONE AND NOW!

AVOID THEM !!!

Early to bed, early to rise... love like mad, and do what feels right to you at that moment... any other RULES or such are nothing but annoyances, and did you NOT retire to get away from the annoyances ???

Between the flyfishing, cleaning the M/H, cooking, eating, fine wines, and sex where does one find time for silly "TO DO LISTS" ???????

Hmmmm, guess I could give up a lil on the sex part but WHY !?!?!?

Retire... Enjoy... Relax

After about four years of playing catch up after I retired, I decided to adopt a work week consisting of six laid back Saturdays followed by Sunday, my day of rest.

Experience the freedom to do what every we would like to do.....
Play a little golf, ride our bikes, dive, travel, instead of a cruise every 2-3 years take one every year. Look at area's we want to visit and then just take our time to get there and take in as much as we can while we travel there.
Do some foreign travel. Visit friends and family in other areas. Might even do a work camp gig or two and experience what that is like.

I retired at 55 almost 18 years ago. I don't know how I ever had time to work as we're busy doing WHAT WE WANT TO DO, NOT HAVE TO DO. My recommendation---- retire from YOUR JOB, not YOUR LIFE!

Not correct; memory is the second thing to go .. and you can't remember what the first thing was.

What to do when retired?

Don't worry "stuff" fills up your time you'll wonder how you ever managed to have time for work... I've been retired for almost six years and having the time of my life.

One time, I had my own generated "to-do" list that had over 24 items on it. I thought I would never get through it, but 2 day later, I was breaking things, just to have something to fix.
