Senior Retirement Living

On this Senior Retirement Living page, I hope to share Opinions from Seniors on How they Live Retired Life!

First, I must confess I don't quite consider myself a "senior"...I'm almost 55, and yes, I am retired, but please don't label me "senior" yet... grin!

However, we are "seniors" in our community, and living a Retired Lifestyle, so let's talk about what we DO as seniors!!

Check out submissions on this topic at the bottom of the page! All were submitted by real retirees on their own Retired Life!

Would you share Your Retired Life with Others?

Are you busy busy? Do you live a simple, quiet retirement life? Do you work/volunteer in retirement? Do you belong to any organizations (even church)? Do you have friends and how often do you get together (weekly lunches or card parties, etc)? How often do you get together with your own family? Do you have a daily routine or does each day just come and go as it does? Do you have a hobby/hobbies (explain them a bit). Do you eat out lots (or mostly at home)? Just trying to see what a "day in the life of this retiree" is like... how many keep busy, how many watch tv and nap their days away? Thanks for sharing your retired life with others!
