2 more days then I go to 1 day a week if I can stand it. I worked until after 7 tonight. No slacking off before the final minute.

I chose this day to no longer work full-time long ago when I calculated 18 months of COBRA and then Medicare. My 63.5 birthday is 4/3.

Now with ACA it is not so necessary. But surprisingly I think my COBRA which kicks in on 7/1 (I have full HI at my current premium until then) might be a little cheaper. We shall see...

April 2015 was my RE goal, but my $$ goal has come, gone and now changed as I have found another large expense I was not planning for. So congrats to all those who are able to retire on time. I hope we do not drag this into 2016, but it is possible.

Last. Full. Time. Day. Ever.

Done. Finito. The end. Happy dance.

Still working very little part-time. Will deal with that next Tuesday.

Am wondering if I'll miss work also. Although next monday will be the first day I don't have to show up for work in many, many years. I've been unemployed in the past, but always figured I'd find another job.

I think a lot of people miss some things about work. There is a lot of social interactions that happen at work. Retiring early puts you out of those social interactions and most of the people your age are not retired when you retire early. Work also defines your day whether you like it or not). I miss having a company pay for my engineering hobby, but I don't mind the change in stress level... I can sleep!!!
Others may know better, but I expect many suggest to plan and schedule your time if you have issues with what to do. The key is to stay active.. this does not mean that you can't have down time. If you end up just watching TV or typing responses into forums... go out into the big blue room and experience life!

I was in corporate America for 40 years and never worked out of anything other than an airplane, hotel room, or home office. I miss none of the travel, I do miss the expense account. I didn't know a scotch was $10. From what I can tell during the first 3 months of Fire is that the stress comes from "What will I do today" Not an issue in the summer but I will have to redirect myself in the winter

Virtually all of my social interactions were work-related; as you (and my wife) suggested, will attempt to schedule my time.

I'll miss traveling to other countries at w/o having to pay for it. Some places like Diego Garcia I could no longer go to anymore.

Looks like April 30 is the new last day at work. Signed up for new health plan through my DW's work (school teacher) starting May 1, she retires July 16, with health and dental for life. My health will be about $1200 a year less than COBRA or ACA.

Howdy all,

Yesterday was the last day of work! I guess that means I get to join this thread, and the Class. I'm really looking forward to it.

I believe that our OMY syndrome will push us into 2016. Enjoy your FIRE this year.

Well my plan to exit the work force later this year is still on track.....with a twist. We will list our home next month and when it sells I will retire and head to Sarasota. I told my boss about this and naturally he is not too keen about the squishiness of this plan but really cannot affect my actions. So, with any luck, a Summer retirement is on track
