Artifacts of retirement

The cupholders in our van reveal a lot about my first year retirement – an increase in time spent with husband Walter at a local coffee shop and a decrease in the number of meals we prepare at home. In 12 days I will begin my second third year of retirement. I wonder what other new behavior patterns will emerge!

Don't you just love retirement? I can't wait until my husband can retire and join me...My kitchen doesn't get used much lately...and I love it! Kathy

I think you will be on your third year of retirement. MK was born in 2008. You retired shortly after. So two years are already under the belt.

@jeremy - You are right; I will be starting my third year. OK, that means I can chalk up one change - a total break down in my ability to calculate simple numbers!!

My math skills were a little sloppy to begin with, now that I'm (also) on my third year of retirement, I'm hopeless. To think I used to be an accountant!

@Syd - Having company in this mathematical state is welcomed!
