I had my first notion of retiring several years ago, but at first it was just a thought ...nothing too serious. I allowed things to divert my attention ...I enjoyed the income, just dreaded the schedule. Giving up that steady income was a hard pill to swallow even though I had a plan in motion. Actually working a bit longer helped me make better decisions about my future and turned out to be the better choice.
Have you read or heard about those 'Tiny Houses' (the ones built on a trailer) that have grown in popularity during the past few years?
I'm considering getting myself one of those 'Tiny Houses' and getting rid of a whole lot of stuff, but keeping my dog, Alice, of course.
