Hello everyone, I've been reading this board for about a year. About 6 months ago, I retired from Megacorp after more than 25 years there. I've gotten a lot of good advice on this board, the most important tidbit being to delay your announcement as long as possible. I struggled with that, but it paid off.
What do I do all day? Sometimes, not much. I play a lot of golf, read, knit, and take naps. I'm also working on clearing the house of junk. This is much harder than I thought it would be. I've sold some items on Craigslist, donated some to Salvation Army and the like, and put stuff out on the curb. I cook more, and I shop at the farmers markets for local produce. I've taken some good trips, too.
Many people react negatively to my ER (I'm 55), they predict "You'll find something." I hope not!
Right now I'm looking for a drawing class. Anyone have any experience with "Drawing from the right side of the brain" (not sure that is exact).
DH also reads and sometimes posts on the board. (hi!)
Thanks for all the good info.
