Restless in Maryland

Hello from Maryland! I've been a reader of the forums (particularly the young dreamers) for a few years, and I am hoping to be free at 55 (52 1/2 right now).

DH has been (early) retired for six years, and we are comfortably/financially prepared for the future. I continue to work to provide us health insurance. At 55 I will qualify for retiree health insurance, and life can change at that time. Right now, I am satisfied with my work, and want to stay productive for the next few years -- a little concerned that I will lose energy/focus as the freedom date approaches.

I look forward to interacting on the forum as my time approaches.

Welcome, I was ready to FIRE couple years ago, till I found that health care would cost a ton. DW got on Medicare and Kaiser last year so I was able to pull the pin last fall at 62. I was worried about lack of any specific things to keep me busy without work, and I enjoyed what I was doing. Now I’m in a learning process to re-focus on what makes me happy without work. Last two weeks it has been Florida keys.

Welcome Aboard! My wife is from Ellicott City. Sure has grown a lot in the last 30 years. And I hope they get the flash flooding fixed. My MIL still lives there so we get there quite often.
