Howdy, all! I try not to clutter the shopping blog with too much personal stuff, but I wanted to pool the collective QR brain today on a personal subject:
Today is my dad’s first official day of retirement! His last day of work was Friday, and today is his first day to not go into work at the same place where he had worked since the early 1970s. That’s a heckuva adjustment, and I know we have a bunch of retirees or spouses of retirees among our membership here, and I was wondering what advice you might have for a new retiree (and for my mom, too, who is also going to be adjusting to this change).
How do you get used to being retired? How did YOU handle it? What would you do differently?
Thanks in advance for any words of wisdom you might have!
