The sun is out and it looks to be a very nice day. I have to work today. Would rather stay home. Yes I’m counting down to retirement. Only 7 more years to go. It would be nice to do what I want to do on my own schedule. But for now, I have to do what I have to do. It’s good most of the time.

I like your last sentence. My work is good most of the time too. Even on the weekends I have to work, I have clients that I enjoy spending time with. However, I do look forward to the day when I have no more weekends to have to devote to work.

Good morning. I used to count down the years until retirement, but working for the company that I currently do, I don't count time down any longer. The time passes quickly enough, have a good day at work today.

@Juliaacv, That is nice to forget tomorrow.What kind of life one would have after during retirement? Won't it be boring?

@cacay1 There are times when boring sounds much more appealing then rushing and running around.

I have longer, but I'd be ok with a job with good supportive sups and that I could at least enjoy

I'm assuming in seven years you'll be sixty-two? I thought I would retire when reaching that age, but once I got there I realized the goal was still in the future. I'm hoping to last another six years. That will take me until I'm seventy. If I can make it working both jobs that long, then I plan on having all medical bills paid off, all consumer debt, my home equity and a larger portion of our mortgage than it looks like now. If you're able to retire when you want to that would be great.

@MarshaMusselman Doing my best to save so I can at 62. Of course if there is no Social Security, then I might have to rethink that.

@Susan2015 I don't think they're expecting it to be gone quite that fast. Course, I've not researched it, so I don't know the expectation for any of it.

I must say that you really will enjoy retirement. It is a hoot. There will still be life problems that come your way, but you will have more time to deal with them.

Are you planning to work through 66 or only to 62? I retired at 60 and never looked back!!

Hopefully the seven years will pass quickly.
