Just Slightly Over 463 Weeks

December 28th, 2014 at 03:33 pm

That's how long until our target retirement date!
I don't think retirement will mean that we never work again, but it will mean "work optional." I think I'll continue to work, but whether it is volunteer work or part-time paid work or some combination of both is TBD.

Austin ranked #3 on the most recent "top 25 places to retire" list from Forbes and was one of the bigger cities on the list. We like it here. So relocating after retirement may not be something that we even need to think about. We envision some day moving to a condo, and that would be the logical time to think about whether we want to stay in Austin or relocate. Because it is a single-story, our current home should be fine for at least the first several years of retirement and maybe longer.

    How fortunate you are to live in a community favourable for retirees. You've several years to explore activities and opportunities for a pleasant retirement. Do you have hobbies and interests that have potential to supply income should you feel bored? The current research suggests seniors are very active the 1st 15 years of retirement and that activity slowly reduces after age 80. Wish someone had told my mom that, she was super active until her last two years.

    Have you worked on your goals for 2015?

    I've heard many good things about Austin. I'd love to see the bats emerge.

    I've mostly only driven through Austin, except maybe twice staying at a friends apartment. What better place to retire to than a place you already know you like? Smile

    rob62521 - only 74 weeks to go? Wow, how exciting for you!

    snafu - Yes, I have finance-related goals for 2015 on a pad on my desk. I worked them up Christmas afternoon. Just letting them sit while I ponder if I want to make any additions or amendments.
