Six Months Retired!
Yes, I've been retired six months now!
I hate to repeat myself, but I Still cannot believe I am retired, let alone SIX MONTHS! I still can't believe I am happy, content with life, and don't worry about my employer in the least.
It's really and truly a good retired life -- if you can get yourself mentally there. Some folks seem to fall into happy retirements, many others struggle for months (and sometimes for a few years).
I think I'm fortunate that I do my websites. They keep me totally busy, occupied and challenged, and are making me a nice income too. Love it!
I've been so blessed to be able to sit in the hospital with mom and step dad over the past two weeks... with no worries. I'm retired and I can be there for them when they need me -- that feels good.
My husband works part-time still, and may retire soon too. He plays guitar at several church services each weekend, so learning new songs, practicing with the rest of the praise team, and playing on Sat/Sunday... is his hobby which will carry him into retirement.
Life is good.
