Congratulations on reaching the six month mark Syd; I can't wait to get there. I am so heartened to hear how well this is going for you. Having had most of the summer off, and now being back full-time for the next two months - and then it's retirement for me - I've experienced the drop in stress and now the return of sore shoulders, a stiff neck, aching back ... not to mention the noise in my head as I try to figure out how to meet many work challenges. Until now I've been doing a count-down by months; I think it's time to switch that to weeks or even days. Your comments about what has to be in your head are really interesting to me as I try to work through what matters to me and what's been imposed as important. What an interesting journey this is. Thanks for sharing your insights and experiences.


Congratulations on reaching the 6-month mark. Time seems to move so much faster after you leave the workforce, doesn't it? I will hit my one-year anniversary at the end of this month.

You are doing incredibly well if your investments are only down 5%. I thought I was fairly well diversified, but still I'm down more than that (I can't bring myself to determine the exact number, though).

And I agree wholeheartedly about health insurance being such a major concern. I still worry a bit about what will happen in the future, but I have to let that go.

Retired Syd

@Sylvia: Hopefully the two months will fly by and you can pick up where you left off!

@RetiredAT47: I would love to hear more from you about your first year of retirement--did you notice any big differences between the first 6 months and the last six months? Do you have any new plans for your next year?
