    Wink Retiring !

    and moving to Idaho this weekend. I am excited, will seem really weird not having to get up for work, BUT there will be oodles of time for quilting. Will be off the grid until I can get hooked up again.

    Are you moving nearer family? Other than quilting what are you looking forward to doing in your new life? I've never been to Idaho but I hear it's beautiful; will you be near mountains? Enjoy! And congrats!

    Enjoy your retirement! It is a wonderful life. I retired just a little over a year ago and certainly have no regrets. I keep so busy all the time - it amazes me how much I get done now. So much nicer to be able to work on a project til it's done instead of having it drag out forever because one runs out of time.

    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!

    Good for you! Next Tuesday is the second anniversary of my last day at work, and I have never gotten up with the thought, "I wish I could go to work and sit in a cubicle and fuss with spreadsheets all day!" Your new life is beginning; hope you enjoy every moment of it!

    Congratulations. It is a very sweet time in your life. I retired just last year at 59. For the most part it has felt like the happiest time of my life. Having your own time is the most wonderful feeling.

    Enjoy your retirement. I retired for a year in 2010. In 2011 I decided to go back to work, I work for my Husband and with our two oldest kids. Much different than working for someone else. Extra spending money is nice too.

    Don't be surprise, but you may not have as much time for quilting as you think. I thought the same thing, all the fun stuff I will have time to do. Well, I don't see where I found time to work, I am so busy doing everything including quilting that I am sooooo, busy. At times, I think going to work has more time to rest. Enjoy and do what you want, just do what you want to do and ENJOY ENJOY
