The new neighbor(s) moved in on Saturday and all seems fine. From what Intel, I have gathered it seems like it is a young single guy. He has a bike rack on the back of his car. That's it. That's all I know.
Saturday, my husband, and his VFW post worked at the home of a disabled veteran. Turns out, this man, served in Vietnam and his son served in Iraq and he too is 100% disabled and lives there at the house with his parents. The home needed to be repaired and improved so Home Depot donated all the materials for free and even some of the employees came out to donate their time to help. My husband laid tile in the bathroom and poured cement for wheelchair ramps. He put in almost 9 hours.
He comes home and he starts talking about retirement. He doesn't know if he can make it 5 more years. He is 61. I guess everyone gets that way when you are close to retiring. He says he is worried about his heart and blood pressure plus he has arthritis. However, just between you and me - he can put in 8-9 hours doing hard labor and he says he wasn't hurting. It's like when I was a senior in HS. I got Senioritis. I barely made it to graduation I was so fed up with the school's social politics. I'm thinking, this is what he may be going through. His doctor says he is fine, doing well and to keep up his physical activity. The doctor has not limited him in any way.
I guess we are going to have to sit down and go over everything - maybe it won't be in 5 years - maybe in 2 years, I don't know.
So for those of you who worked and were within 5 years of retirement, did you ever get Senioritis?
