We signed closing papers on our house last Friday so we are ready for our move, it was so painless that it was scary it must be meant to be, God's watching over us and agrees with our plans or we would have had many more obstacles in our way. Scary smooth.

we are down to 32 days, I keep getting the jitters with excitement I would bet you are too. We sold our house here in Alaska and will be buying our new place down in Nevada, we already have the shop up "of course" the well is in and the power is too the property. We picked out the home we wanted it's headed to engineering and then it will be delivered, manufactured home.

Nancy you haven't got cold feet yet have you? you should have 58 days left right?

Cold feet? Oh, no. Not at all. Retirement is on my mind every minute of the day. I even find myself talking to strangers about it (what a jerk....). I also have Jury Duty as of Monday. Maybe I will get on a real loooong case and never have to go back (at least not for an extra week or so).

Awe good for you. My husband is excited but very overwhelmed at the same time. with the selling of our home he has to pack up a large shop that has 16 years of collections in it, not to mention that he is a procrastinator to boot. The house is 85-90% packed up and ready to rock and roll, hopefully now that the weather is better here in Anchorage he will get energized and get something done.

He too keeps very close tabs to the days left, he has 19 days of actual work. May 29th will be his last day at work

Congratulations to you and your husband on your retirement, Tressa!

Nancy, coincidentally, I was on a jury for a few weeks just before I filed for retirement. I didn't mind it at all; in fact it was good for me to get away from my stressful office and I was impressed by the conscientiousness of my fellow jurors.

faithfulFrank, I also had a countdown timer ticking off the days until retirement. At first it seemed so far off, but the time passed quickly.

Boy your right there, the time is moving fairly fast I'm having a tough time trying to keep up with it don't even think that it's possible to get ahead of it about now.

Went back to work at 56.Now I can do it again at 63.Traveled the first time around U.S.This time want to go to France and see the sights.Then do what I want without the boss I have that drives me nuts.He is 70 years old and is staying apparently untill he drops at work.Its a sad sight to see. I wont miss his ugly face for sure.

But who's counting, right?

I started a countdown clock when I hit the three year mark. Then I changed my mind and decided on a date two years earlier. Watching those days drop, especially after weekend, was a daily reminder of what was most important in life and work wasn't it!

Now, almost seven months post-retirement, no complaints whatsoever!
