CHCHCHCHANGES....

A good change! After working since I was 18 years old (I'm now 61 and a half), I am finally retiring! This will be my last week of work and I'm beyond excited! I have little things planned for my first few weeks of "no work" .... places I want to go, things I want to do around the house.... After those things are finished, I will then need to sit down and figure out what I might do in this next "chapter in my life".... Any ideas or suggestions?!!

Congratulations!

I'm sure you'll figure things out. My bet is that you'll become so busy that you'll wonder when you had time to go to work.

i've been in the next chapter of my life for 14 years after working for 27 years. I say keep your options open, but all the free time is a wonderful things. You catch up on all the things you couldn't do when you were working!

Congratulations!

Congratulations to you on reaching old age, lol. JK, you're only as old as you think you are. I'd catch up on all the things you didn't have time to do while you were working. People to talk to, stitching to do, knitting, crocheting, quilting, blogging, reading, and playing games. (Facebook and Pogo have some really great ones!) You could scrapbook, learn to sew, workwork, or do any number of things. Gardening...

Congratulations!! I can't wait until I get there. Working is for the birds... LOL. Well I hope you do travel to Ohio at least once a year so that we can see eachother more than twice a year for one day at a time. Other than that I think that mdgtjulie said it best... :0)
