You are reading page 2 of I have decided to retire!. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

My Illinois license I’ll keep active as I live in Illinois and may want to do something as a volunteer. 

I have a license in Missouri also but not renewing. Going inactive.

Just after I made this decision, my newest grandson spent 11 days in the hospital with RSV at age 2 1/2 weeks. I plan to babysit for him 3 days a week once my daughter goes back to work. At least until he is a little older.

I remember walking into work one morning, feeling like the timer on the turkey had popped out. I was done. 

Retirement rocks. Have fun! Go new places, play with your family, find new hobbies. Sleep late. Take naps. Read. 

And, know that the job is well done. 

I described the feeling as having hit a wall.  Love the turkey timer analogy.  Yes, I was definitely popped.  Completely agree with the rest of your post too.  I also don't hate snow and bad weather anymore because I don't have to go out in it.

OP:  Congratulations.  Retirement is the best. thing. ever.
