If The Shoe Fits Wear It

With the last of the offspring sent to their part of the world, I'm finally getting into the rhythm of the semi-retired lifestyle.  And I have to say I'm liking it a lot.

I'm working effectively half-time.  That's around 25 to 30 hours a week.  I'm making sure that I hike twice a week and I'm trying to always do the hikes during the week so I have my solitude though sometimes schedule or weather forces me to a weekend day.

I've found that I'm actually doing more actual client work than I was doing recently which is good because it is what I really enjoy and I get paid which I enjoy as well.  I'm doing lots of work on our projected trips which I love to.

Unfortunately I've got jury duty for two straight weeks next month.  So that will screw up the hiking schedule for sure.

But I'm looking forward to more doing what I'm enjoying.

I'm so glad you're enjoying semi- retirement. It's interesting that some people can't imagine what they'll do when they retire, whereas others (like me) have a long list of activities ready to go.

I love following this transition that you're making, and I'm taking mental notes. I'm definitely one who worries about successfully managing retirement (from a fulfillment standpoint.)

There is not enough time to do all that I want. Have to set priorities.
