I’m in year 10 of retirement. (I still do some consulting that amounts to about 2 months a year of work divided by two as my business partner is also my wife.) I retired well before the standard age of 65. At first I loved it. Then I hated it as my mind withered absent the rough and tumble of the work place. Now I’m settled into it and would find it difficult to return to full time employment. Depending on the weather my days usually consist of a 45 mile bicycle ride with my bike club. A supplemental workout at the gym. One to two hours at the cigar club solving the world’s problems. A few hours of guitar time a day. When it rains/snows my bike time goes down and my gym and guitar time go up. We break the monotony of life by traveling fairly extensively. All in all, as of today, it ain’t a bad life.
