Thanks for your well wishes, my husband and I are very excited about the new adventure in our lives. Getting our paycheck mailed home and not having to report to work, now that is worth dreaming about.

321 days to go. I am looking forward to having more time to do what I like to do. but wondering how will I afford it. My main concern is that I am older than my husband by nine years and I have him on my health insurance. When I finally get to 65, how will we afford the insurance.

Wondering if you all feel when you are as close as I am that it seems to be taking forever the closer you get?

Yes, lillietta. It does seem that the closer you are, the longer it takes. It's like waiting for that clock in the classroom to turn to 3:00 . Or for Christmas when you were six years old. But, it will come.

Right seems that it's slowing down now, I think it's cause wer are getting bored with what we have going on and waiting for the new adventure. Still packing up items around the house for the move still working on down sizing. the thing that irritates me is the pace that folks take when asking for a quote to move household goods.

I contacted a company requesting at quote for moving my goods to another state, he said he would get back to me in a couple of days, that was a week ago. Doesn't he know that I live, sleep, eat and drink retirement LOL

Oops, sorry Tressa, I replied to an older thread of yours before seeing this one. I sure understand how the closer you get to retirement day, the slower time seems to go by. Hang in there.

Thanks Cherron, we are hanging in there only cuz we have too. I'm still packing in hopes that we can close on selling our house quickly once thats done it's going to feel a bit more real. I took my pictures off the walls this morning before work, I just don't want to procrastinate. not sure if I spelled that correctly but you get the idea.

I am also retiring from NYC (from teaching) & just in time Elliot signed that 55/25 bill. If this had happened just two weeks ago ....
