That is exactly what I want my retirement to be like, too! That sounds idyllic.

My exercise goal is running 20 mi/week but I stop running if a minor injury developes or I get sick or we go on vacation. Then there is French at the JC. Also paint in oils (my avatar is a part of a painting). Then there are the blue bunnies -- oops, shouldn't have mentioned those.

I've got pretty good at starting fires in our fireplace on these winter evenings and then turning off the house forced air heat. That's generally around 4pm when I can settle down with a glass of Cab and a piece of gruyere cheese -- tough life.

Take the kids to school every morning five days a week. Workout midday three days a week. Participate couple of online forums everyday or as mood strikes.

Rest of time is unscheduled.
