The First 1000 Days

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).
