    My husband retired after 20 years as an engineer with the IRS. His party was tonight. I am so excited about him getting to do some of the stuff he's wanted to do for so many years. When he started, retirement was something we thought would never happen. Now it has :!:

    My DH retired from IBM after 30 years. He worked for another 12 years at various jobs before finally accepting social security at age 62. He's now volunteering and enjoying it immensely.

    Actually, I have one more year to go, so he will do all the cooking and grocery shopping. :thumbup: Then, after dinner I can just sew :lol: And yes, he loves my work. He finds it amazing. It's nice to have an appreciative audience.

    Wonderful news. Beware, after a couple of weeks, time to have a girl's day out!

    You know, I feel really sorry for all those people who say it's hard on the wife when the hubby retires, or you'll get tired of him being around or whatever...
    My DH retired TEN years ago (seems like yesterday) and I have been SO THANKFUL to have him out of that gawdawful factory and able to enjoy life - he worked 30 years of swing shift, had open heart surgery (for a hole in his heart), and we wondered if he'd ever make it to retirement, let alone enjoy it for years.
    I love having him around - we go everywhere together - altho I do go to quilt guild (sometimes) without him - if the lady I ride with doesn't go - he drives me!
    Tomorrow we are going to a quilt show.
    He works out in the yard - his hobby, I quilt...
    This is one wife who's been married a long time (going on 45 years) who's tickled to pieces to have DH retired and hanging around!
    (altho, he has been known to be a poophead - buwahahahaaaa)
