I'm not sure what you are hoping to find out in your poll. I really like my job, but I still can't wait to retire. I've been working for 30+ years, and I'm tired of the daily grind. I would prefer that my time really belongs to me, and that I do not have my days scheduled because I have to be at work. I even find this with volunteer activities, by the way. At some point, I get tired of being on someone else's schedule, and prefer the freedom and flexibility of setting my own schedule and using my time as I see fit.And it is that part that DH has had a hard time understanding, but finally gets it. Since he is self-employed, he gets to set his own hours. If he'd prefer to go skiing today rather than go to the job, he can just do that. If he wants to go play golf in the summer instead of work on a paid project, he can do that. Granted, he only gets paid when he is working, but he can choose when he wants to put in those hours, and can set expectations accordingly. As someone who works for a large company, I just don't have that flexibility, and find that I end up taking my vacation as a lot of half-days to get in the activities that I want to be doing.That doesn't mean that I don't like my job. I really do, and I work with a great bunch of people, but that has nothing to do with the fact that I am most definitely ready for the next phase of my life, which is retirement.
