Well, you are older than me, so I guess it makes sense that you retire first, Lainey. I have to say that with the health issues I have been dealing with this year, I'm wishing I retired five years ago.

Can you change your proposal and get out sooner?

Two of my sisters have had health issues. One dodged a HUGE bullet due to early detection, the other just had surgery for circulatory issues. Both will be fine, thankfully. However we do realize we aren't getting any younger, so retirement it is!

If I followed that logic I would have been retired 10 years ago. now I'll probably be working another ten. there are just so many toys.

Congratulations, Lainey!

I'm sure that you will find plenty of things to keep you busy in retirement, more classes at the Y, taking more photos, etc.

I'm sure you will be very happy!

Thanks, Sue. That is my plan so far. I will have no trouble keeping busy in the AM, afternoons can be little outings when weather permits, or I can always clean. Some days I will make a second trip to the Y in the late afternoon if I like the class schedule. Late afternoon before dinner is a dangerous time for snacking if I'm not busy.

One of my photo friends just photographed the snowy owl that comes to our area in the winter. I'm off next Tuesday, hoping it's not too cold to head to the beach.

It will be good to wake up when I want to and do what I want to. Rick has absolutely no regrets with his decision to retire. He has a routine, he is happy and content, and I will try to stay out of his way. We can meet up for dinner at night!

There are many unknowns with retirement, will we have enough $, will one of us get sick and the expenses daunting? However, there is no guarantee of ANYTHING in this world. Life is short. We want to enjoy it for a bit, while we are both (hopefully) in good health. Every day will soon be a Saturday!
Congrats Lainey,

As you know I retired at the beginning of this year. I have no regret so far and will keep busy. What made me pull the trigger is that people have said to me that if I can retire to do it while I have my health, don’t wait till you can’t enjoy it.

All the best,

Jim
