I have not drawn a paycheck in the 10+ years since I retired. We have traveled. I took on being chief cook- which is fine as I get to eat what I like. DW and I have had some health challenges that have forced her to slow down, but she's back to helping clients, mostly long term people whose families she has provided legal work to for years.I'm curious if those of you who are retired really don't work at all?
It may be different for us, because we have a business, but we cannot imagine ever not working at all. My husband has scaled down and he thinks that when he does "retire", he will work about half time. His long term plan is to take a full week off each quarter and a long weekend per month, but never close his business and stop working.
Life has been very good and we stay active. I walk, sing in a local chorale. DW plays horn in the symphony, paints and makes jewelry. We travel- not as actively as we once did, but still a half dozen or more cruises, TS vacay's a year and a second home if we get bored.
