Young (54) ANXIOUS.....and retired! !!!
by Linda Byrge
Hello everyone! My husband and I just retired 3 weeks ago.. the day after he retired from 25 years as a police officer, we left Detroit and moved to a small town in Tennessee which we had been planning for a while..
We already had our house here and lots of work to be done around here... I am just feeling a little closed in... it us beautiful here.. lots different than Michigan... our money situation is great and I should be happier than a pig in a poke..bur I am not.
it's really rural around here and the nearest big city is Knoxville..65 miles away... I am not accustomed to driving in hilly areas either so that's another problem in itself... I retired in 2006 after 20 years and then cleaned houses for 8.... made a lot of friends that started out as clients... and because if Facebook can still keep in touch.
I am sure it will get better and I will get used to it all on due time!!!!
I just want to be happy especially since we are very lucky at 54 and 56 not to have to work!!!
