Welcome to our blog. We both retired on April 14th of 2014
I don't think you were complaining, you just had a lot going on. I think it's great that your grandson is helping you with the house, and also that he's getting some pointers. So many kids never learn to do practical things like that, and if they learn to do it right, it's so much more satisfying when the job is done. Good for both of you!
Life is short, we never know what tomorrow will bring. We retired early so we can enjoy what life has to offer while we were young enough to travel. That was 4 yrs ago. Do we have a lot of money?? NO WAY, but we wouldn't trade the fulltime RV lifestyle for more money! There are many things you can do on the road -- consulting is one. It's time to do what you want, so try not to worry & take time to smell the roses!! God bless!
