I like the phrase that we retire to reinvent ourselves. I am in my third "retirement."

Currently, I only do what I want to do and it fits my schedule. I get paid for 10-15 hours/week as I drive senior citizens to grocery stores and field trips (wineries this Friday). I don't do anything before 10 am because I workout. Anything else has to be from home so I can do it any time.

I do these things because I would be bored to death if I did not. There are not enough home projects, newspapers/books to read, or TV to watch that hold my interest. Engaging with other people and having purpose is the key.

The only thing I don't like doing is going out at night. A local investment club has sparked my interest, but they meet in the evening when I am comfy/cozy on the couch watching Jeopardy.

Ain't retirement grand!
