    Dear Easysurfer,

    How's ER going?

    I am really enjoying my ER. Never having to leave the house for anything until at least 10 am and try to be home by 3 pm to avoid rush hour traffic in the Washington DC area.

    I have more time to cook. I eat better. I have time to go through my "stuff" and making many trips to Goodwill. Also sold some stuff on Amazon and Craigslist. Try to get rid of as much stuff as I can in case I decide to move to some place warmer.

    Did you retire in place? Or did you move after you ER'd?
    One time you mentioned that you drove to New Orleans for your niece's graduation, was it difficult to drive around New Orleans?

    My older brother lives there so I may plan to drive down to visit him one of these days.

    Nice chatting with you.

    Dear Easysurfer,

    Thank you for your PM. Yes, you were right. The day came for me!!! I am so happy. I am still going to work each morning but the end is truly in sight so I don't dread it at all when the alarm goes off.

    I stay up later to organize my books and DVDs. I already feel like I've retired and started to do everything leisurely instead of hurriedly.

    I love your post about it's snowing outside as you typed and you were warm and cozy inside not worrying about commuting in bad weather. I look forward to enjoying the same experience.

    I am going to put out cozy slippers for my feet since I will be wearing them a lot more than any heels and dress shoes starting April 1st.

    Life is so sweet, isn't it?!!! I am glad you and I had worked hard all our lives so this feels even more delicious when we finally get to ER.

    Have a lovely day!
