My wife and I were lucky enough to be able to retire nearly 10 years before both of us thought both of us would. I worked at the same locale since I got out of university. In fact, the company I retired from was the same company I interned with while I was in summers in university. I enjoyed laboring inside the zone controlled Heating, Ventilation plus A/C of those offices. My colleagues were good and I had a real passion for work. Even in our mid 50’s I was still enjoying what I did for a living. My wife was the main care giver to our teenagers and had developed her own company decorating homes and businesses. This allowed her to have complete control over her schedule. But when the company provided me nearly a full pension at 57, both of us just couldn’t turn it down. So both of us upgraded the Heating, Ventilation plus A/C component in our condo and sold it. Then both of us moved south and bought the smaller bungalow where both of us live today. When our wife wanted a locale with a sunroom, I was skeptical. The Summer heat was brutal so I couldn’t see the value. But both of us did it anyway. These days, that was one of the best decisions both of us ever made. All both of us had to do was add a ductless heat pump. The Heating, Ventilation plus A/C professionals made that process both painless and easy. Now that both of us are slowing down after being retired for 20 years, having that sunroom with good is just so pricey to me. I assume enjoy I can get out in the sun even on the days that our body isn’t feeling to great.
