Re: Office-Space Style Hypnosis

Younger son was born when I was 39; older (step) son came a bit later but was 18 at the time when I was 41. So I still have one at home in high school. I wouldn't trade him for the world (most days). I do not mind working a bit longer, but when he goes off to college wife & I may head to the South Pacific.
No trouble keeping up with the younger dads, coached YMCA basketball for 4 seasons. All this has kept me young and having the uncertainty of the younger son's college costs has caused me to work longer than I might have had to. But it has allowed me to add more funds to my retirement and my job has lost a lot of its stress after 30+ years so I have a no lose situation, working is OK and if I want to leave --I go.

Re: Office-Space Style Hypnosis

I'm 30, planning on having the second (and possibly last) child at 33. I'm doing two triathlons this summer, still feeling good! I think it's a use it or lose it thing. Stay active and you'll feel young a lot longer. My G-ma is almost 80, plays tennis twice a week, bowls once a week, went to Iceland and climbed a glacier there.
