Oh, yes! Am trying to figure out if I can retire, even with the debt I have, rather than pine for the things I just cannot do (i.e. take a couple of weeks to pop down to NC or TEXAS even to see kids and grandkids..!)  My heart and my mind really aren't into the job anymore-time to go, I think!

I know how to use a rotary phone and remember when phone numbers had initials for their area (FL for Flagstone) instead of numbers!  There was only 1 phone in the house and sometimes there was a party line!  You were sent out to play outside and had to be home before it became dark!  I watched "Uncle Miltie" and "Howdy Doody"!.

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.
