It’s difficult to believe it’s been 1,000 days since I retired. The perception of time –how fast the days pass– is surely the thing that is most different since I stopped working. I can vividly recall that first Monday in March 2010 when I slept in, got up and didn’t have to be somewhere at a specific time. What liberation!
It has been a most wonderful thousand days, including:
- almost 300 rounds of golf
- over 200 trips to the gym
- 14 national parks and monuments visited
- scores of books read
- 8 hours of sleep almost every night
- cataloging the U.S. stamp collection (just a few less than 10,000 items)
- countless hours working with plants in our yard
- around 840 hours and 18,000 miles NOT spent driving to/from the office
Oh, and all the home remodeling (not on my original list of retirement goals).
