Anyone have any experience with this? Do I need to learn shuffleboard or buy ugly pants? I already have a crazy wife.

I got involved in various kinds of volunteer work, there are opportunities for almost every interest.

Everything I read says to engage your friends and family and not to isolate. My DH has been retired a few years. He gets a little grumpy in the winter. In good weather he has lots to occupy him. I have one year until I can retire. Can't wait. It would be hard to wrap my mind around moving it up suddenly. I plan to take a few months off totally, then volunteer a little. I am thinking Girls on the run and a local food bank will be my volunteer places of choice. We also have a few trips on our list. Not to mention more time to spoil the grands! I have several siblings who are retired. They all like to travel as well. It's a big step.

This is all good words of wisdom.

No excuse not to be an age group winner now!

All I know is my mom and the residents I work with say they got WAY busier once they retired. Apparently everybody asks you to do everything since they think you have plenty of time on your hands now. So beware.

That's funny. I was hoping to outlast a few. But Nazaeetti's theory is true here also. The fast ones keep on racing. Sigh. I still get hopeful every time I reach a new age group.

The retired guys at the gym spend more time talking to people about which seniors are there that day, and networking than they do on the machines so crack me up. I hope to be at they gym and library a lot. More importantly I hope I'm retired on my time schedule.

We (it's 'we' because wife and I work together) keep getting asked when we're going to retire. We have no plans to do so. We might change occupations (no plans for that yet, either), but not retire.

Are you self employed?
