It was the same for me--I felt disengaged and annoyed with work. Amd DH was still working, providing income and health insurance, while teaching college so he had a month off for winter break and 3 months for summer vacay. We did a lot of domestic and some foreign travel.

Eventually, kind of like 1pg says, my husband developed an early onset dementia. Thank goodness we had fun while we still could. There are things other than death to be concerned about--like severe disability. Plus my family needed me when they became disabled (mom, bro).
