I retired in April 2003, had just turned 55. I'm still just 55 (in my head!) and enjoying life.

To all of you "soon to retire" you're going to love it.
Keep busy, keep your mind active, take time to smell all of the florwers, and never forget to say, I love you !
14 years of retirement and yes, I have no idea how I worked and still got everything done.

Retired.....well not completely.

I retired from Military. Then retired from school district, well sort of, I still sub just because I have not come to terms with not having a job yet.

I have held a job since I was about 11 years old working in a shoe store for $1 an hour.

At one time in my life when kids were babies, I worked one FT job and 5 PT jobs.

I have talked to guys who retired and could not stand it so they went back to work. This sub thing I am doing now gives me the freedom to work when I want to and stay focused on getting the things done we need to in order to be FT next October. So much to do yet and so I suppose you can call that a job huh....

And now that I am more retired than not, the DW is taking advantage of that "to do list"

I get the "to do list thing" I was the boss at work, now I'm just support staff at home!! I'm talking with our dogs and cats about an uprising, don't think it's gonna work.

Retired 25 yrs ago, at age 48. Found out one never really "retires". One just stops "going to work". One has to keep working, ie, have a purpose to get up in the morning. Every day will bring new opportunities. Just have to recognize them. And, the work day can be any amount of time, not 8 hrs as when you "went in to work". We have to keep busy, but the "restrictions, restraints, constrictions, constraints" have been changed or eliminated. Just relax, and enjoy life. "Don't worry about nothing, nothing will be alright" !!!

Over 13 years for me and 12 years for DW. Interesting thing is - wife actually retired while we were doing our first trip down south for winter. She had enough vacation built up that we were on the road for a month before it became official. We are now getting more $ retired then we got when employed! Takes careful planning. 24 more days until we take off for Tonopah, AZ.
