I too am far from retirement, about 13-15 years, but I can tell you my parents were way busier when they were retired, projects, traveling etc.

I have no doubt...but doing things they WANT not things they MUST!

I am excited thinking about it!

Good Monday Morning:

Another work week is here.... Why do weekends go so fast??

Talking rain moving in late morning, hopefully we get some rain, my garden needs it, but I washed my car yesterday, so in that respect I kinda hope it passes me by...

I am hoping to retire in 7 years....my daughter will have her 20 years in military in 6-7 years, so we should be retiring together.... and she is sooo much younger than me.....but I am so looking forward to it.

well have a great day

Chuck, hope all is fine in your neck of the world...don't know exactly where you live down there. A friend JUST moved to Clermont last week!

Luckily, she's far enough away from that isn't an issue.

We are 2.5 miles from it. Kinda scary. We passed by about 20 minutes ago and counted 25 news trucks. What part of Clermont did your friends move to? We are in southern Clermont, close to 192.

I'm not sure, they just moved last week. She just said it wasn't too close to her. She started at WDW today in the College program.

I feel sorry for those poor people who die shortly after retiring.

I saw that on the news this morning! How scary. At least (as reported on the news) most people were just coming back from the parks and were awake to hear the noises of it starting to sink, otherwise it could have been way worse.

For the newcomers, there is a FB page for our cruise and if you are interested, you might want to sign up for our cabin crawl - wine tasting and beer tasting.

It's just a fun way to get together without too much of a time committment, sample some local wines or beers (you supply a six pack or a couple of bottles of your local wine for everyone to sample). It's also a good way to check out other cabin types. We have to do it in cabins because you can't drink in public places like hallways
