I SWEAR I took more vacations when working 60 to 90 hrs a week. Retired in 2007 at age 49 and I work for me now....not "The Man".

Congratulations on your upcoming retirement! I, too, am retired, though my husband has not yet taken the plunge. He is contemplating it harder every day. Though I do agree that I love being retired now, there is a bit of an adjustment period involved. You don’t realize how much you affiliate who you are with what you do for a living until you stop doing it. Give yourself that time to adjust and figure out your new reality. It will get better as you set a new daily routine. I’ve met a few people who really struggled with retirement and found another job to keep from going stir crazy. I personally contemplated doing that myself...now I’m glad I refrained from following that urge. Remember this: It’s ok to say no to people who think you should use all your new “free” time to help them out. You earned that time to choose what you want to do with it! I don’t mean to be the voice of gloom and doom, just want you to give yourself that transition time. Enjoy your retirement!
