Or visiting my son and daughter at their office and sit in the lobby while I wait for them and see all the activity.

At times I wish I was one of them and could be at their lunch business meeting and talk about important things, especially if I was in charge!

How about you?
I am not quite retired, but can't wait. My NLT date is June, but it could be sooner.

I did my time making the big decisions, looking forward to spending my time making the small decisions (kayaking or hiking today, visit the kids or go to a national park for a few days, gardening or walking the dogs for the morning).

I met my boss for retirement some 35 years ago, and I like her a lot!
