After working the past fifteen years in one place, it feels almost surreal to be done. Hope others will confirm that retirement starts to feel real sometime soon. I am still thinking I have to get up in the morning and go...I have a very part-time job starting in two weeks so maybe by then it will all feel pretty wonderful but right now I am in a state of disbelief.

You'll adjust. I don't miss teaching even though Mrs. NBP still is teaching and brings it home sometimes.


My main emotion is that I'm glad I'm done.


I still wake up most days between 4:30 and 5.


I officially left this past July 1 although my last day was Halloween 2014.

OP, it's bound to feel a little weird after 15 years in one place. Give it some time.

I worked for one employer for 34 years, the last 21 years of which were at the same site. I can relate to what you're saying.

Today is my husband last day too. It's hard adjusting to the new freedom, i.e, not having to be anywhere.
