If this was WEGO....

I gotta feeling if it had WEGO, you'd have a different issue with it, Dest.   :))

I will be completely retiring in about 10 months. I can see now how I will spend a significant portion of it!
Don't kid yourself. You'll be wondering how the hell you fitted stuff in while you were working as other stuff replaces it!

I had the same intentions when I retired but now I got to s-q-u-e-e-z-e in time to play dammit. I think you shouldn't tell anybody you're retired for about a year. Maybe then you can get to that gaming backlog.

I warned ya! ;D

I have hobbies out the backside..including a 3000 point Warhammer Orc army of metal and plastic miniatures that I have already painted flat black. No color yet, but that is a BIG project. Easily 200 minis...and easily a couple of hours of painting each.

So many things to do. The missus and I will likely travel at least one week per month, or more. Good stuff!

There's a narrow window of time between when you retire and when you get too old to enjoy it. Make the most of it while you can. I'd travel more but I have to schedule trips around doctor's appointments.  #:-)

I had a long talk with my financial planner. The missus and I have been in "squirrel" mode for years. We will be virtually debt free, and with monthly income more than double our projected expenses. He told us much the same as you...travel into my early '70's, then sit by the fireplace with a blanket and some brandy for the next 15 years, and watch the pile grow...with a laptop to play the latest turn-based strategy games!

Can you send me the number of your financial planner? I like his style.

I actually got nothing to complain about. My retirement check covers all my bills with a little left over as long as I don't get crazy with spending. And the wife covers the rest. I've also got a nice 'nest egg' squirreled away earning interest and cash in the bank if I need it. Oddly enough, I've gotten more raises since I retired than I ever did while working.  :idiot2:

Life is a series of choices...and the missus and I, over 40 years ago, decided I would go career military, and she would get out of the military and become a teacher. Our game plan has remain essentially unchanged since 1976. We are very blessed, to be sure. That, and the missus will frequently drop a steam card on my desk, for no reason. Not as good as her spaghetti, but not bad!

Heh heh...she was a guild officer in our WoW guild, and has two toons at level 110. She is a gamer too! Makes like a lot easier for me, and she understands when I get a game "woody".
