Thread Name: BS: Oh happy day! Retirement
Subject: RE: BS: Oh happy day! Retirement
I retired seven months ago to preserve my health - the place went from a well-oiled machine to a rudderless sinking ship over the course of five years with new management and a toxic "reorganization." Retiring, when I was finally eligible, meant escape, and as you note, getting away from nonsense, but as you also note, I really miss the old friends from the workplace.
It took a few months of drifting and doing nothing to get over that workplace, and a couple of more months to sort out how to use my time and how often I needed to get out socially to stay happy.
Enjoy your retirement, and best wishes on sorting out how to spend your days. The garden and work around the house seem to keep scooting along, moving to tomorrow on the calendar until you nail them down. I started keeping a list.
