The losing has begun

Just water so far

The edema is gone

I ate a Chinese buffet today

One plate

My normal serving

And I was stuffed

A lot of fruit

Some baked chicken

Brocolli

No sodium trail mix

New lunch containers

A dog toy

Back to work tomorrow

Why do we say that since work is most of what we do with our lives

Weekends are spent getting ready for work

Nights are spent sleeping for work

Mornings are spent dressing for work

There's too much work

Retirement is a good thing when work becomes a drag on living. Then you can devote your time to the work that satisfies you. 

We have to work.. the brain needs it the body needs it too.. thats the most difficult part of retirement, remaining fit.

My profession broke my heart when it went from hands work to computer so retiring was easy.  now I do hands work for myself and use the computer to flesh out a problem but mostly to amuse or self educate but I have to proactively exercise if I want to remain alive. I'm looking forward to reading the blogs you write when you finally retire.

Hi, Monkey, sorry for the long pause before answering.

I agree, we need to be active but I don't know that we need to "work" in the respect of a 9-5 job. I am looking forward to the day that I can, like you, set my own schedule and fulfill my own needs instead of someone else's. I'm glad that I'm finally actually doing that when I have time off.
