Don't you hate Sunday nights? I can't wait until Sundays nights are so dreaded anymore.

Do you plan to stay in Grants Pass or will you relocate. My family lives in Grants Pass, Williams and Trail and I live here in Alaska. Will be wintering in Nevada and summering in Alaska.

Yes. Always up too late getting ready for the work week and consequently dead tired Monday.

2 more years for me before every day is a Saturday.

Don't be surprised if you need a day clock to tell you what day of the week it is, after you retire, even though you don't need an alarm clock. I can't tell you the number of times I've hovered the cursor over the time on my computer to check on the day of the week or looked at the face of my cell phone for the day (not the date). This is not a bad thing. It's just that the weekend is no longer special. You no longer have to do things on Saturday that you used to cram in when you were working. Mondays, no longer horrible. In fact, I look forward to everyone else being off the road on the day when they go back to work and school. Wednesday, no longer hump day - there is no hump down or up. Friday, no longer look at the clock every 15 minutes to see if you can leave for the weekend. Friday is the weekend. So is Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

LauraC you have a wonderful way of putting things, I too look forward to the times when all others have to report to work or school and the roads are free to roam, well somewhat free. I will have to locate one of those clocks that shows everything, day date and time. But I will let that purchase ride for a bit after we retire I think I would like the idea of not knowing and the best part not caring what day it is.

If I had 25 more years to go and knew what I know now I think that I might have done something a little different but all is good and we will make the best of it.
