I have been retired for several years and find that it is great! I lead a very busy life. How do others of you who are retired spend your days?

Bored, busy, wish you were back at work etc.

I retired earlier than most but I love it. There are not enough hours in the day. I belong to several organizations, a gym and of course spend time with my children and grandchildren.

I'm 29 years old and employed full-time. I can't imagine anyone wanting to go back to work after retirement.

Snowflake and Gumbo

Thank you for replying to my thread!!

I too retired early and find it very fulfilling. Gumbo, I'm sure you will enjoy retirement when your turn comes as much as Snowflake and I do now.

Have a great day!

dunroven and Snowflake...I am curious how old you were when you retired...if you don't mind answering. How 'early' was early retirement?
DH talks about retiring early and while I can imagine him leaving his corporate job I know he/we will have to do something..KWIM?

Default Was wondering how retirment is in Charlotte?

Hello everyone,

My husband and I are looking to retire early. He is 58 and is retired I am 52 and in the HR profession at a major pharma company. I have about three years to retire out of corp life- - and was wondering if Charlotte is a good place to retire.

We are from NJ, pretty liberal; however respect all thoughts and views have dogs and cats and since we are young I plan to work in Charlotte before I retire and know there are many organizations where hopefully I could relo and get a nice position.

We like the warm weather and the beach, (we know Charlotte is not near a beach) and a lower cost of living. We were wondering if we could get a new or fairly new house for around 300K (2500 sq ft)? and what the prop taxes would be. We have friends who live in Raleigh and we were amazed at the lower cost of housing and taxes.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. We are also looking at Tampa , Jax and Sarasota, fla, so anyone who has experienced those places please feel free to share your oponion. Thanks!

SC
