KAMLOOPS — Retirement is hard work.
Five years ago I wrote a column on my first day of official retirement. I reflected on what it was like not going to work that day, attending to all the details of putting out a daily newspaper.
Back then, I wasn’t sure what to expect from retirement but I wasn’t worried. I had a lot of other things on the go, things that would more than fill up my day.
That’s not the way you should think about retirement, of course — finding things to fill up your day. It should be about finally being able to do what you want.
