Am I in there?

It looks like my last day was 15 Jan 2015. I was 67 then.

I have been hoping to put a bit more brass in the pocket but let's just say 15 Jan '15 then.

I wound up pulling the plug July 24, not July 2, but got it done and moved from Houston to Reno in June (DW went first while I worked another two months.)
Skiied 26 days over the winter. Didn't fish much but now that it's cooling down, I can fix that.

ER Year in Review

I have gotten so much out of reading other peoples' experiences who were generous enough to post on this site. I have also learned very useful financial info pertaining to ACA and tax strategy. Wanted to share my own one-year-in experience.

My retirement 1 year anniversary just passed in September. It was not a planned retirement. I had known for about a year that I was OK financially to retire but I think I probably would have been too afraid to do it for years. Then a crisis happened at work that required me to give much more than I could handle, and I quit.

Right after I quit, the market had a prolonged dip and I was convinced I'd end up poor. It was not a rational, fact-based, fear and I knew that. Didn't help. I cut every expense to the bone and got a part-time job that I hated. After about 6 months of "retirement" I had made myself so miserable that I decided I'd rather risk becoming poor. So I quit the part-time job.

I've been tracking expenses and investment income and have become much more relaxed about the financial end of things. I think the anxiety comes from taking money OUT of your savings/investments when you've been making sure not to touch it for years. A year has passed and the nest egg has survived withdrawals for living expenses and grown. It's almost like magic. I have much more confidence now that it will survive lean market years too since my WR is lower than 4% and my allocation is 50/50.

The psychological adjustment turned out to be the bigger nut to crack. From reading postings here I think that people who fall into ER abruptly, like I did, or like people who are let go, have a harder time of it. I had all these plans, such as app development (was a programmer), clearing estate stuff still all over the house, moving. But I was too out of sorts to do much of anything for a good 6 months. That cloud has lifted now, and I'm getting back to my list and starting to relax and enjoy.

Although some of my experience is not typical, it does seem like many people have a decompression period that they did not expect at the beginning. Also they worry, probably unnecessarily, about money.

Thanks for sharing! I know the transition from saving to spending will throw me for a loop. However, I have a pretty detailed spreadsheet that I have maintained for many years with actual and projected spend and income/return info. This has been pretty accurate, if not a little conservative. However, it's like that crazy dream I used to have after graduating from College and I would wake up thinking that I missed a class and never really graduated. I'm sure after I RE my dreams will be that I don't have as much money as I thought I did or something silly like that. My retirement tree is pretty full so I am not very worried about getting bored, but I am always concerned about how much is enough.
