Recently retired- Still figuring it out
(South Lyon, Mich. )
60 years young. I have been retired for 5 months.
Live on a lake in Michigan, so the summer was easy. Play golf, and worked part time at a local course. Winter will be harder to stay busy.
I will work at the course, for the C.C. ski program, part time. Just signed up for some volunteer work at the local food bank. Work out on cardio equip. 5 days a week. Reading a bunch, catching up on the good book list.
Just continue to have this feeling that I need to be doing more?
Worked for big corporations for 38 years, right out of college. Always had my time filled, raising 2 kids as well.
Does this feeling go away, the one that bugs me about doing more?
Wendy: I've been retired 3.5 years now and its still there for me! I do think I'm unusual, that's why I'm doing my websites -- to keep busy, challeged, mentally occupied! Like everyone, 30+ years of work and being Time-Challeged -- then suddenly all the time in the world, and what to do?
It does get better... I love retirement, just gotta keep me busy! Best Wishes!
