15. I retired this past January...

I decided to give myself a full year before I figured out how I would feel about not going to work any longer. It's now October and I'm finding out a few things about myself. I've often said that unless you're independently wealthy, you have either the money to do things but not the time or vice versa.

I've done a lot of volunteer work in my younger days and some of that I can no longer do because I'm older, so now I need to find something I can do where I don't feel tied to a regular schedule. So many of the volunteer opportunities want you to commit to a schedule and who wants that when they're retired?

Anyway, too much time on my hands isn't good either.
