Happy Retirement Day! :)

Happy Retirement. You will definitely enjoy it.

February 27th, 2013, 09:36 PM
You will love it. I retired 7 years ago at the age of 55, so you and I are the same age, I think. What you need to do is to make sure you stay busy. Doing nothing is boring. Either garden, quilt, paint, or whatever you like, but make sure you do it everyday. Also, going on small day trips with your hubby is good, too.

February 27th, 2013, 09:41 PM
Congrats! I've been retired for 11 years and I retired early also. I Love it and hope you will too!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! What a GREAT feeling that must be! Wow!

I canNOT WAIT until I retire. Only 18 more years to go! uhg. Although, there is NO mandatory age of retirement here...and with my debt load I'll be 95 and still working, eating cat food and living in a cardboard box! Glad you got to retire a bit earlier than the standard! ENJOY!!

February 27th, 2013, 10:52 PM
Bopeep, best wishes to you on your next chapter in life! You are the same age as my dh and bff. Now you can relax and live life at your own pace. Plz post pics of your next projects!

February 28th, 2013, 06:53 AM
Great for you. Enjoy your new found freedom to live your life without the worry of getting to work, stress at work, etc. One thing I loved right away is not having to drive to work in bad weather and not having to get up at 7am if I didn't want to.

February 28th, 2013, 08:17 AM
Yippee I'm so excited for you as you'll love it! I retired almost three years ago after working 37 years straight and am still on cloud nine...retirement is a time not only to celebrate personal freedom, but to discover more about yourself... Enjoy !

February 28th, 2013, 09:12 AM

February 28th, 2013, 11:59 AM
Retirement day is a BIGGIE! I hope you have a terrific retirement and get to do the things that working made hard to find time to do! There is a little period of adjustment (for me about a month) and then I really got into being retired. I'm glad they gave you a royal and loving send-off...Congratulations, BoPeep!

February 28th, 2013, 12:20 PM
Woo-Hoo! Congratulations! Hope you enjoy every moment.

February 28th, 2013, 12:53 PM
