No where to go and all day to get there.
Now you can enjoy those camping trips.

Dang I'm jealous. I've worked for my company for 30 years, not law enforcement, just that horrible corporate political stuff. Today, I have two years, 360 days until full retirement. No matter what happens with the economy... I can live on vienna sausage and rice(!) enjoy every moment of your retirement. May it be loooooong and healthy.

Way to go, but the down side of being retired is now you never get a day off.

Talking Your future

The first thing you notice is that every day seems to be Saturday. Of course you working for law enforcement, you probably worked a rotating shift which included Saturdays.
The next thing is that you don't do many of the things you planned on before retirement. I have yet to open my art kit, and don't play my new saxophone as much as I would like. So don't run out and buy any expensive equipment at least for one year. Retiring is a like any major life change, don't do anything major for at least one year.
Holidays will mean less to you because you don't get the time off to look forward to.
Otherwise, retirement is great!
Another thing is you get forgetful. I see I already posted on this thread. Oops.

Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right.

I try to have at least one thing planned for each day, be it weekend or weekday. That way I always have something I can postpone.

Congrats, you deserve to relax and be at your own calling. Enjoy! My wife and I both retired the 1st of May last year, used the scamp a couple times and will use it this year after the snow melts and warms up. "Relax and take retirement slow" is the best advice i have been given.
