    Congratulations 17George! I'm envious. Are you going full-time now (or are you already FT)?

    Congrats! I retired 4 years ago. I love waking up and saying "What am I going to do today?" followed by "Anything I want!"

    Congratulations, it's a major step in life. It's a little scary too. When I retired I worked diligently on the sticks and bricks projects that I had put off for years. About 3 months into it I realized I was highly stressed, anxious, not sleeping well. I fretted about it for a few days, then realized that it's the first time since I was 8 years old that I had not worked. A few times in my life I was between work, and bad things loomed on the horizon. But then I went back to work and all was fine. But the thought of never going to work again scared the crap out of me.

    By the time my third post retirement income statement came in I had settled down. But it was touch and go for a few days. I almost went back to work.

    Nowadays I still work. And mostly the jobs don't pay very well. But the difference is I get to choose what I do and when I do it. If I don't like it I simply walk away. What jobs do I do? Mostly volunteer work at state parks, we camphost, mow, trail maintenance, welcome center, kayak guide, etc. When we winter we work at a ski resort, I am a greeter. I work 3 half days and get a free ski pass and $13.50 an hour. Almost enough to pay the heating bill in the RV.

    Welcome to the life of a retiree....
