Retirement Thoughts

  Started my retirment five years ago today

Hard to believe that five years have passed since I started retirement. It has been a heck of a ride, thoroughly enjoying my retirement. I want to continue enjoying my retirement, but after five years, I should start my retirement projects which have been in limbo for five years.

I absolutely have to loose substantial weight. Being overweight is never good for your health, but as you get older, it is essential you get your weight in-line.

As much as I am a night owl, I do have to work on getting to bed earlier, and getting up earlier. Getting to bed between 4:30am and 6:00am has to stop not matter who much I enjoy being a night owl.

I am still spending like the proverbial drunken sailor. I still want to feed my gadget addiction, but show some semblance of budgetary concern.

My review of ever paper, file, etc. that I own, and scanning the important ones to PDF before trashing (which has been on hold for 5 years) has got to start, and continue until I am done. My goal is to eliminate about 90%+ of the papers, files etc. that I have accumulated over the years.

Tempus does indeed fugit. It feels like a year ago at most, not five years since I retired. I am very fortunate that I am enjoying my retirement as much as I am. I just have to start spending an hour or so a day on my projects while still going out everyday, and enjoying myself.
 
I am 98% sure I will be retiring on June 30, 2004, the last day to qualify for the retirement incentive of an extra 5 years added to your age or years of service. Update - I did take the retirement on June 30, 2004. This will be my second retirement. I retired in November 1992, again taking advantage of a retirement incentive. This retirement will be different; I will be 57 and the do not anticipate being employed full time again.
