Some regrets, no regrets
I retired at 66, four years ago. I had always worked so this was and is new to me.
I have some money, but when there are the insurances and taxes and extra home repairs and unexpected medical bills, it gets a little tight. Would be nice to have the extra money to do the things I could do when I had a regular pay check; but I don't. I am fortunate that I paid off my house, have no auto loans or other debt, but it is the unexpected that can get you.
I have always been pretty healthy but this past year has been a bugger. Was in a car accident, had skin graft on my face, had retina surgery and a cancer removed from my breast. Thank goodness for my supplemental insurance.
So now it is time to pull up my socks and dive back into an active life.
Don't know what I will do, but already have a few trips planned and will share the costs with a friend.
Going to check out some courses at the local tech school. Planning a greenhouse so I can winter garden
And most of all thanking God that I was born in this great country with all its freedom and opportunities.
P.S. Wendy added the bold, just so good!
