    Yea...wouldn't drive under those conditions either. What I hate is when I watch the grandsons in Illinois and I have to take them somewhere...and have to drive a strange huge minivan or a Jeep Wrangler, plus get three boys in the car, easier now that only one is in a car seat but was harder when they were all younger.

    Then I'm horrible with directions and tend to get lost, plus when I do get there I have 3 boys to watch and control and only 2 hands. :)

    I dread it and I tell my son that make sure I don't have to be driving them places. It's just too stressful keeping your eye on three active boys when we are out...anywhere.

    I'm still working full time. My hope of working part time and having a permanent place to live that I own is not going so far as planned. I think I let a lot of fear run me.

    So I don't know if full retirement will go as planned at all. I'm not expecting money to travel. I'm just asking for a safe and decent place to live and enough money to support myself and pets.

    Better! Have more retirement income than we thought, live in a great small town now with lots of nice people, and we have a great, low-maintenance home with minimal yard to care for..

    Gee, I keep telling people, on this forum, just how much enough money can play a huge part in “retirement happiness”.
