My recent 2 weeks off during Christmas was the closest thing I can compare to ER, and it was wonderful. I did not feel bored at all. In fact, I finally got around to writing some trading programs I have been wanting to write for a long time because I had big blocks of time to sit and think. I went to the gym regularly, and, most important, I forgot all of the BS back at the office and because of that, got so much better sleep.
Very helpful for me - fighting w/ the temptation to return.

Sometimes you need to return to solidify the decision . I retired and then went back on a part time basis . I stayed for a year but after about six months I knew I was done permanently this time and retired with no thoughts of going back .

I'm imagining that I see either a snake or lizard head on the underside of the branch on the right of bottom center.

A dead tree limb on my mostly dead pear tree. I thought it died all together during the winter, but I have one limb left that shows a few pears coming out. It's been a good producing tree even though it looked like hell, but looks like it is on it's way out.
