More power to you for energy levels! You must be a "really early" retiree.

For me the first month was key because I had never been away from work for that long.

My 2nd milestone month was six months. At that point I figured I had gotten through my bucket list and had to really contend with what retirement was really going to feel like with unlimited time in the future. 10 years later I can report that it still feels great.

mine is more like:
in retirement you get 365 days of leave
....but it's all "use or loose" !


(AFA the OP... just wait for your quarterly review)

It's interesting that I used almost these words when I told boss and his bosses why I was leaving. No animosity or sarcasm on my part. I'd just been told I'd being doing something else. I didn't want to.
