Update: It's happening - I am retiring!

Thanks to all of your input and comments it opened up further discussion in our household.  We both decided to retire the first of the year!  

 

What a relief - the countdown is beginning!  

 

Thank you again!

Having done retirement seminars in the past, I can tell you that each of you will be on a roller coaster ride for a while.  This is normal: just remember what things you each want to do together and separately.  Have a plan than can be adjusted as your needs fluctuate.

 

Best wishes and good health as you approach this chapter of life !

We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.

Congrats and fantastic.  You will love it.  I retired June of 2018 and wish I'd done it 2 years sooner.   Enjoy!
