Go to work, go to sleep, keep doing what you enjoy and it will be here soon enough. Counting down is like watching water and waiting for it to boil. When I began my 24th year I promised myself I would not watch and toil over the last 12 months and they flew right by in a flash. I will admit that the last month was the longest month of my career.
Good luck and I hope the time flies but once you do retire put it in first gear or on cruise control and enjoy.
Good for ya Z. I know you are looking forward to it. Let's see...we are the same age, and I have about 15 years to go...now that's a considerable bit remaining to pull in harness. But, self employed, no pension, health insurance rates what they now are...it's a factual reality. Last I looked I can't even get partial SS until 67 1/2, and that wouldn't cut it anyways.

So, in reality, by the time I'm 70 I will have actually "worked" about the same amount of time as you by the time you retire. I guess that's fair. And I got to do a lot of stuff when I was young enough and strong enough to really enjoy it. Problem is, that retirement right now thing is starting to look better and better every year as I age. Oh well, you makes your decisions and then you live with the choices.
You will have to do a bunch of cool stuff and post it up so I can retire vicariously.
