    For me, it's kinda backwards. When I was working, every second of every day that I had off was precious. Even when I was working on a rewarding project, I cherished those days off. There were my horses and dogs to tend to and train, weeds and brush to beat back, books to read, friends to talk to.

    Now that every day is a day off, I'm in an earthly heaven. Well, I'm an atheist, but you understand what I'm saying, I assume. Given a choice between working and retirement, I'll pick retirement every time. There still aren't enough hours in a day for me.

    The best thing about retirement is ... every day is a day off!

      In spite of the sig line I also find that at the end of the day it seems like I've managed to stay busy but not in a stressful way at all.

      Some days I wonder how I'd managed to run various errands, do my genealogical work, water my plants, etc. if I had a job.

      I quite enjoy my retirement. I have more time for meal planning, cooking, and generally having a good time.

      My budget doesn't permit me to do very much in the way of travel--I'm lucky to really get away for a couple of days every year--and I would like to travel more. But at the same time, I have enough money for the important things and I'm grateful for that.

      The only trouble with retirement is...I never get a day off!
