    She is gonna have way too much time to make lists of stuff that you need to get done.

    she has always had time to make lists
    I have plenty of interests, A friend once said when he retired. "Everyday is Saturday, except Sunday"
    Our neighbors retired a couple years ago. I dont want to become them, nice yard, nice garden walk the dog once in a while. We hope to do more summer fishing hiking and camping. It would be nic3e if she came to elk camp. And maybe on the warm days show up in the goose it for an hour or two.

    Retirement is like 6 Saturdays in a row, followed by a Sunday.

    My better half retired 5 years ago. I am still working, so it has been somewhat more difficult for me to head out on the weekends to chase birds or fish. She is now able to do all of "her" stuff during the week and on the weekends we have more "together" time.

    She is a great fishing partner, she enjoys going but doesn't really fish, I am hoping that she might go along on a duck hunt or 2 but so far.... She does have extra time to come up with projects for me. lol

    You will enjoy that her stress level will disappear.

    I retired 1 year ago, my wife has been retired for 4 years now, it was an adjustment being around her so much, actually kinda of weird at first, but after six months or so we got into our own routine and couldn’t be happier. Congrats to your wife, retirement is great.

    Enjoy having your best friend around all the time. If she’s not your best friend, you did something wrong. It’s great to be able to just go & do. No schedule. No worries.

    Congrats to you both!! Are either of you 65 yet to get on Medicare? If not, how much a year did you budget for health insurance costs? I can't imaging bugeting $20K a year for both of us for the next 5 years. Not to hijack the thread.
