I retired at 51 (1998) , then went to doing contract IT work, then the IT jobs crashed. Parents died so I went to work in the retirement center where they used to live. Then step daughter died and we inherited two grandkids so I'm still working waiting till the wife can retire. Now her health is poor and they can't find a cause or at least they haven't told us if they have. That's as of today. Their specifically looking for liver cancer though. Work all your life to enjoy retirement and you may not make it so enjoy the time while you have it!!!

I retired April 30th and planned to launch full time on May 24th. Half of that came to pass. For a variety of reasons, I'm still circling south central Florida like a vulture over stale road kill. Stopping working is easy. Retiring seems to be more of a challenge. I feel like I'm working harder at not working than I was working. What happened? And who made the days shorter? Every time I cross something off my to-do list, two more things I never thought about pop up and hitch a ride. And this after almost 2 years off planning. Good thing I wasn't in charge of D-day.
