  1. Then there’s the line at Starbucks. not much of a wait at 10:30. ditto for weeknight dinners out and movies.
    but there are also expectations. When we visit our kids [they don’t live in the same city as we do], there is the unsaid assumption that, with all that time available to us, we’ll bake their favorite breads and bring the home-made granola. pressure, pressure!

  2. I’m officially down to one day a week now, but my husband is full time. He plans on retiring next summer and I can’t wait! I’m glad you’re loving it!

      I thought there was a good chance I would get bored but here I am in my second year and loving it all. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I am sure looking forward to it! My husband just turned 65 but will work at least another year and maybe more. I do wish I’d known to plan a little better for this very important time of my life because I would LOVE to spend it traveling and that is expensive.

      As I said I didn’t plan very well but so far God has been good to me. Husband was a little better prepared and that helps.

  4. Retirement can certainly be a wonderful time of life. It took me a little while to find my way but now I’m enjoying life and I totally agree with all your positives. Thanks so much for linking up with us at #MSTL and being part of our first link up. I hope to see you next week.

      Thank you Sue. Starting a blog was the first thing I did when I retired. I have to say there was more of an adjustment when husband retired because I had gotten used to doing whatever I wanted to with me time. lol

  5. I’m still working my way towards the ultimate joy of retirement – I’m down to 2 days a week of work this year and I LOVE it! The no-early-appt rule is a big one for me – nothing before 11am. I love the flexibility of life without 5 days a week work – I’m going to love retirement even more! Thanks so much for linking up with us at #MLSTL and I’ve share your post on my social media x

      Thank you so much. Daughter hasn’t been as involved as she would like since she started working full time but we talk and discuss everything and she does all of the web things that I don’t get. lol

      I really thought when I retired that after the first month or so I would be looking for a job but it never happened. I don’t have time for a part-time job. lol
