    Can't wait until it's my turn. Got another 20 to put in unless I win the lottery or some rich person with no kids adopts me for some weird reason. Unlike some of you, I've never liked work. Always did it, am dependable, and I do good work, but I don't find any real value in it outside of the paycheck.

    I never knew what I "wanted to be" growing up (still don't), and thus never really had passion for any job or career path. I've been fortunate thus far and lucked into a decent career path, although it is not satisfying and when it's not mundane the idiocy of what has broken the monotony is frustrating. But it pays decent. And for a guy not motivated to rule the world in a career field, I guess that's about as good as I can expect.

    Retired in 2015 at 59 y.o. The company I retired from hired me back to train some folks for ~ 2 years between then and now.
    Had a great career importing and distributing CNC machine tools. I’ve seen a lot of the World but it wouldn’t bother me to never get on a plane again.
    Now I piddle around the house and we’re getting ready to spoil our first grand child due in early March.
    Definitely been blessed.:thumbsup:

    I'm done but here I am still waking up at oh-dark-thirty, it's instilled in my brain since I've been doing it for 45 years.

    Like Coastboater I've been offered a contract job and I'm going to take it, the schedule is good 3 weeks on and 3 weeks off. It'll go for about a year but the money was good and I should be able to pay off the mortgage.

    My update on retirement: I’ve been retired for 4.5 years now, and thought about going back to work. But have to admit to myself that there is more to life than making more money for the government to tap. I do not get up early but still go to bed at the same time, well close to it. Decided to move to mainly one level home, soon, as stairs all the time is a PIA for us. I remember my folks doing the shuffle walk when they were in their 80s and 90s. Not sure if I’ll live that long. Anyways, leaving for Maui tomorrow for 10 days, to hopefully get some sun and beach time in. I like the fresh seafood also!
