We work only seven hours a day in the summer. I'm loving it. Right now, the extra five hours are going into going through my stuff, but everything that I get rid of is stuff that I won't have to deal with in a move later. And I am actually getting rid of a lot of stuff.

And I'm thinking about what I would do during retirement. My spontaneous reaction is what would I DO with myself, so I'm thinking about what I would do with myself. I'm working on a list of things to do in retirement or to learn before I retire.

Things to learn before retirement:

  • Relearn how to ride a bike. I'd like to spend time on biking (and hiking) trails.

  • How to play pool? That's something that I've wanted to learn since I was a kid. The woman with whom I'm doing the presentation later this month is a pool player. Maybe I should hire her to teach me.

  • Learn to play golf? I've been interested in that since high school. But there's always miniature golf :)

  • Improve my photography skills

  • Take singing lessons


Things to learn during retirement:

  • Audit online classes

  • Audit university classes?

  • Guitar and piano (if not sooner)

  • Foreign languages


Other things to do:

  • Write regularly

  • Volunteer

  • Container garden

  • Travel as much as I can afford


It's a start. I have time to think about this because I want to retire at 70 to max out Social Security. And I might look for part-time work after that (preferably at home).
