I thought I would miss the 'school scene', I really LOVED my job. it took about 20 minutes for the realization that I was truly 'free' to sink in and I haven't looked back. that was 5 years ago. volunteer opportunities abound in my new community and I can work w/kids, work w/animals, build for Habitat, whatever. there is never enough time in my day!
So have a wonderful retirement, do what you want...when you want.!
