Do you mean that you miss not having something to look forward to every week?

Why not plan something fun that you *can* look forward to, so that all days are not the same - ? A weekly golf game, lunch with friends, etc.

(Dh is hoping to retire in about 2.5 years, so we are trying to anticipate - and plan for - the challenges and joys of retirement....

I think it was meant as a joke. Kind of the "retirement paradox".

Off from what? Life? Being retired, I am my own boss, but I do see some who load up their free time with a million commitments. Matter of choice.

That's what dh & I said when we became parents of our newborn twins.

In retirement now, I get to decide what I will or won't do every day. So I get as many days off as I choose.

This reminds me of George Carlin's line, "What does a dog do on his day off? He can't lie around- that's his job!"

I'm not retired yet, but I'd rather think of it as every day being a weekend. I'll be able to stay out late any night I want.

Yes it aggravates me that I don't get paid for holidays anymore.

It's true. I'm too lazy to worry about it.
