Woke up with a smile this morning. Had a good night sleep and realized I donít have to worry about nasty weather in the Northeast, 4am wake up for a 5am flight, red eyes, airport food, etc.. ( I was a pilot)

Good for you. But sadly I realized that I never had to do all those things, because I'm not a pilot. Which means retirement won't bring any relief

Cool! Now you get to decide when you want to deal with the weather, etc.
This is a great time of the year for this to sink in. Enjoy!
