By this time on May 30, I will be preparing for my last day teaching.
Oh, it's possible that I might work as an adjunct, a substitute (particularly in a long-term job - 1-3 months, typically), or a tutor.
But, full-time employment may be permanently over.
Sometimes, plans change. Usually, there is a financial incentive. Some crisis hits, and the budget takes a hit. One or the other (or both) of the retirees needs to return to paid work, for a time.
Sometimes, there are other factors - boredom sometimes sets in, and paid employment is used to fill empty hours. I don't fault those who do so - I can imagine a time where, in an effort to re-connect after a spouse's death, one of us might choose a part-time job. It certainly beats withering away from loneliness.
I can't guarantee the future. But, as of now, this is the plan.
I'll post more over the next few months, as I adjust to the change in my routines - how I structure my days, ways I change my spending, the really FUN experience of dealing with Social Security, Medicare and other insurances, experiences with financial planners, etc.
