    I clearly remember the morning after I retired. I slept in. I woke up and the sun was peeking through my window blind. The first thing I did was smile so hard my face hurt. I log rolled over on my side, sat up and placed my feet on my little bedside rug that lay on our hardwood floor. I let out an audible chuckle and then began guffawing. Throwing my arms into the air, I started shouting....”Yes! Yes! Yes!” over and over.

    I went out to the kitchen and cooked my self up a bacon and eggs breakfast and brewed coffee. And that’s probably the most I got accomplished all day long.

    I hope you have a memorable day today Rosa!

    Congratulations, Rosa! You will LOVE it, I'm sure. As a teacher my retirement didn't kick in until after the summer. I clearly remember the early days in August the year we (both husband and I taught and retired at the same time) retired and KNEW I did not have to go to school, set up my room on my own time, plan, learn names, go to a single meeting! It was joyous. We scheduled a trip to Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island for the first week of school that Sept. Every year in August I get Williamsmith's feeling! Yay!!!

    Congratulations! I understand that, for many, retirement doesn't feel like retirement at first -- it feels like a very long vacation. But eventually you will feel retired and it will be great!

    Thanks everyone. Feeling like I'm on a very long vacation won't be hard to take either.
