Is it possible?
I have reached an 'age' - the one where you start seriously thinking about retirement.
Oh they tell you you should think about it in your 20's and 30's... but I didn't. I sure as hell didn't. I was too busy raising my kids - starting a career - then starting out on my own.
I have always joked that I would be working till I was 100.......... it was funny when I was in my 40's and 50's. Now - not so much.
I read - somewhere on the net - that one should have 1,000,000$ saved for your retirement. Yeah you read that right ..... ONE MILLION dollars. I am not even close.
I have been crunching numbers. I have signed up for a workshop on retirement (at work). I have been juggling figures till my brain hurts.
It's all gonna work out though....... because I have W... and W has me... and we have plans. Oh we don't have the hen that laid the golden egg.. we don't even have a golden egg. BUT we have each other.. and together is the best place to be.
