Soooooooo looking forward to it.
Way to go, you'll love it. You won't love things like dealing with Medicare and retirement income, but retirement is good.
FWIW, I had originally been planning to retire when I turn 67 at the end of this calendar year, but early last year I reached the point where I had "had it" with my boss-created stress (great guy, love him to death as a person, but he couldn't manage people for sh*t), and turned in my retirement papers for Sept 30 2015. Then I took my accumulated vacation and personal time and left effective Aug. 15.
Never looked back.
BTW, medical coverage is really expensive in retirement if you're under 65. Ain't exactly cheap if you're OVER 65, either, but it's a lot better with Medicare.
