The closer I get to 65-the more information I search on retirement and each day I get up to go to work, I take stock and have realized that financially, it would be better for me to retire than to continue to work every 2 weeks collecting a paycheck.

There are so many things I missed out on during my career. I think people do not realize how much we work each day and how much of our lives are taken up by working hard and although I am grateful for having a great job, physically most of us know when to move forward and move on.

I remember playing hop scotch and jumping rope and climbing the big tree in our backyard.  I remember having a big glass kool-aid container like the one on TV and my mom always had some waiting in the fridge after school.  Mom worked, but there was always a full home-cooked meal on the table every night and we all ate together.  It was nice.

 You know all of the words to every song that plays 
on the *oldies* radio station and it feels as though 
you are still in high∙school as you sing along to them
