Ohhh Marge, I wish lol. I joke all the time that I'll finish this dissertation in time to retire :-). Not quite but close lol. If I won a lottery or had a bit more stashed away I would in a heartbeat, there are so many things I want to do that always have to wait a bit, because they aren't priorities for the here and now :-(

I wish. Technically, IF my state doesn't drastically change retirement eligibility, I have 4 more years, BUT could not afford to live on that so .... Who knows when.

I always look longingly at those who are retired and compare their age to mine. Often they are younger, sometimes they're my age. Those who are older than me are almost always retired. I never really thought much about it until my late husband died a year ago. Now I think about it a lot. Ironically we talked about it occassionally and looked forward to the pleasure of spending that time together. But of course that can't be now. My first concern when he died was whether I could afford to support myself. During this past year I have determined that I can. I guess the next step will be to determine if and when retirement can happen. So I guess what I am saying is that right now, I don't have a concrete date. Being a teacher, I think having the summer to look forward to helps until then, however.

I am re-tired because I got up this morning -- refreshed-- and had to go to work at a CPA office (ummmm tax time!) Now I am home and re-tired all over again..... laughing laughing I know this is not what you meant but my brain is fried and just wanted to make someone--- anyone---- laugh. Lord knows I could use one! So tonight I will retire to my bed and tomorrow, about this time, I will re-tire once again.

Thanks for putting up with my sillyness................... wave

I started this because I've been surprised at how many profiles I'm seeing of men ages 52-57 who are retired.

When I moved to California, I guess I retired because I don't have a job! I am also retirement age. Before I moved here I worked at a job that was considered temporary/part-time/seasonal. I enjoyed being busy when we had a project to work on. And I tend to waste time when I don't have a set schedule of a job that I need to get to. I came out here thinking I would help out in my son's business but that hasn't been worked out yet. My daughter-in-law said she wanted me "to enjoy retirement." And now she's asking when I will come into the office to help! Soon.....I like to keep busy!!!

I will re-tire to my bed very soon but I do not think retiring from my job will happen for years. I wondered the question you asked also.

Marge, I think it is another word for unemployed.
