Yes. Everything is on track. The biggest hiccup has been covid. I came down with it on 2/1 and it has really knocked me for a loop. Felt like i was hit by a bus. 11 days now and I'm still not 100%.

Looking forward to a long weekend of getting my strength back and I'll be able to do a victory lap next week.

Oh no. It's a nasty disease. I hope you feel better soon.

I hope your retiree health insurance covers you in case Covid lingers. Maybe stay on until Covid passes? - just a thought, so YMMV.

Wow, poor timing! I sure hope you are feeling better very soon! Maybe a retirement celebration can lift your spirits!

Yes...I have recovered but it was a long, slow process. Iíve never been sick like that before. Day after day and you donít feel any better. Glad itís behind me now.

Loving retirement, so far. Been getting a lot of things done around the house that I had been neglecting.

Been going to the gym almost every day. Part of that is my Covid recovery...Iíve had no endurance. My normal cadence is every other day.

Doing a lot of reading.

Best part has been no work stress. No problems sleeping. No pit in the stomach this past Sunday night.

Congrats, and glad you are recovering from COVID. The stress reduction is wonderful, I experienced some of that too.

I notice the car in your avatar...post something in the "Life After FIRE" section if you are into cars...I am and have a '69 Camaro.

Which thread are you talking about? I've already posted on a couple of car threads in the last couple years. I haven't seen any new ones.

Thank goodness you are on the road to recovery!

MU hubby and I retired at the same time about 1 1/2 years ago, and that "no pit in the stomach" on Sunday nights is something we noticed, too. We loved our jobs, but stilll, that Sunday night...

And don't you just love leisurely mornings now?

Looking at the Avatar my guess is it is a 1966 Chevelle. Finance Dave your 69 Camaro was looking sharp in the BTD thread. The 383 is a great street motor.. I also have a 1st Gen Camaro a 67 , but mine is not nearly as nice.

Thanks Slohan. I have another car...there's not a good thread to post it in but I don't want to hijack this one...maybe I'll start a new thread.

Good to hear you are on the back end of covid and enjoying your retirement. I retired June of 2018 and still have those thoughts on Sunday afternoons thinking tomorrow is Monday and back to w*rk. So much joy when I remember those days are over.
