Here it is another sunday evening and preparing for the new work week. Yuk We have until June of 08.

Will be so nice to look at Sunday evening in a different view. We really envy you all that are retired and not thinking of Sunday a beginning to a new grusome work week.

For all of you hope that tomorrow brings you excitement and many pleasures.

I think it is meant to seem that way right before you retire. It is good that you are looking forward to retirement, rather than dread it. I am enjoying retirement. I just told my dh that I dread going to the water exercises in the morning, because it will be so cold. Everybody should be so lucky that that is all they dread. It will be fun once I get in the water.

Yep, I agree...retirement is the start of a life free from the daily crap at work...

I have several years to go and am using that time to prepare as much as possible; time seems to fly by so quickly that while I am looking forward to retirement, I am also thankful for the time I have left on the job to prepare for the reduced income and make plans.

The reduced income will be scary but everybody that I chat with says that it can be done as you don't really realize what your spending your money on during a normal work week. My hasband and I are looking at it as a new adventure in our lives.

That's when I will be retiring, too (for me it is the end of June so it is eight months).
It is nice that you and your husband are retiring together. What a great adventure for you both.

My "official" last day of work is January 4th.....every single day I wonder what it will be like NOT to have to jump up at zero dark thirty and go through the "routine"....I have felt the dread your feeling more and more the closer I get to retirement....I was scared at first, but am now looking so forward to it.....I agree with North Carolina Native 100% it's "meant" to be that way!!

Retirement will be the same as having a weekend that never ends!

My husband and I are planning a vacation over the Christmas holidays and the stuggle of getting the time off from work at times can be a pain, so I told him that come June we will be on vacation and we will decide when we return to work (home duties) will be quite nice I think.

Green I tell you, green with envy!!!!

We've pushed our date out a few. I decided to keep at it until 62 for the SS and she's going to keep dumping a ton into her pension.

We'll be much better off by doing so. We could go now, but it will be worth the wait. I think...
