This thread is intended for those who have made the leap...or on the cusp of making the leap to retirement. However, in good TSD fashion, wise cracks from the peanut gallery are welcome as usual. Retirement is on the horizon for me...so I ask this question of everyone I meet who has retired: How did you adjust to retirement? How did you prepare yourself for retirement? Or did you prepare? Did you leap cold turkey? Or ease yourself out? I am surprised at the even number on both sides: some seem to have adjusted easily...others seem like they are struggling. What say you?
