I'll hit my one year anniversary of FIRE next week. Don't miss the cube-farm at all!! Keep busy with the yard and animal shelter volunteering. Took a few OLLI classes in the winter and in the spring. Did a bit of traveling. It was nice to travel without having to get home and immediately check the work e-mails to see want needed to get done.

Best I could find was attribution to Horace coining the term in Ars Poetica. All I will say is that even though an oxymoron by definition is made up of more than one word, I'd still argue sesquipedalianism is the antonym of that!

The Class of 2014

Hello everyone, I retired 01/03/14 and life as been good! Pension is deposited like clockwork and got a COLA this year. I've travel a little to New Orleans, Lake Charles - LA, Las Vegas - NV and Concord - MA.....some places multiple times. My pension covers all my expenses plus money for saving and travel. I still haven't downsized because I haven't felt like getting the house ready to sell. Hope everyone is enjoying retirement.

I'm spending less on gas and more on entertainment. I stuck to my written budget which I made prior to retirement, I have line items for lunching, tech things that haven't been invented yet, miscellaneous. If I don't spend the money I sweep it into my travel category the next month. I had to replace my two A/C units & furnace to the tune of $11,500 and took that out of my emergency fund.
