You wake up too early in the morning but you make up for it by taking an after lunch nap.

You keep a list of the restaurants near you that offer free food with drinks and early bird specials.

I think the best part of retirement for a lot of us lies in the realization of this being the end of forced association. It begins with our first day of school and ends when we leave work. We often talk here about this being a time of taking advantage of a kind of freedom, and the choices of activity that is implied when we have all day to do what we want, but, the really good part is the fact that now we can choose WHO we spend time with.

You know you're retired when you never have to think about money again.

You can take an hour-long bath in the morning seven days a week, you don't have to get dressed right away, and you care more about wearing what is comfortable instead of what is fashionable.
