I am happy for you obgyn, and hope it works out great for both of you. She might even be able to help a bit more with your spending objective.

Doing things today that others won't, to do things tomorrow that others can't. Of course I'm referring to workouts, not robbing banks.

A new study...

"Retiring early doesn’t mean you’ll be any happier. In fact, the age at which men retire has little to do with improving their happiness during retirement. Men share the same feelings in retirement regardless of the age at which they retire, new research has found. Male retirees saw a boost in happiness immediately after retiring, the research showed, but after a few years of retirement that happiness began to decline.The way to think about retirement is like a sugar rush," researcher Elizabeth Mokyr Horner told BusinessNewsDaily. "People retire and they have this burst of happiness and they are relaxed and they are getting enough sleep and visiting their families and then the reality of aging comes to the forefront of their experience. They sort of have more negative experiences with retirement. By the time we hit 70, both the early retirees and late retirees had a decline in happiness". So says

It looks like after 70 there is the risk death from a broken heart

Life is what you make of it. Happiness is there for you to find. I don't think I'll ever be unhappy about being retired! It's just too gosh darn great!

A lot of things make me happy. MS and I have been together since we were 16 (that's, um, a long time!) Being able to share my life with my best friend for all this time has made me very happy.

My dog makes me happy - especially when we're doing things like walking in the woods where he can "revel in his dogness"! I walk about a mile or so. He runs about 10! It's hard to tire out a labby!

I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.
