That question was asked of me from my boss when I quit to FIRE. She asked "what are you going to do with all of that time?". And she just thought it was a sabbatical, not FIRE.

On my recent 6 week trip, I frequently would ask aloud "what are you going to do with all of that time?" while doing some beautiful hikes in the Canadian Rockies and Moab. Just ask @NinetyFour , @aperture , and @Financial Ascensionist . We would all laugh about it.

A friend just visited from out of town. She knows I have a big birthday coming up. She just texted me that I looked totally relaxed when she saw me. I was never a really stressed out person, and she is not the first one to tell me I look more relaxed after FIRE. So now I am even more chill than pre-FIRE, if that is even possible...

We FIREd about a year ago and my husband was very concerned before retiring that he would have nothing to do. With 4 children at home, fun hobbies and lots of volunteer work, we love it all and often ask each other how we ever fit jobs into our lives before.

There's always something that needs doing in the world.

Ha! When I saw that video, I thought, "Former NASA engineer who spends months building weird contraptions and puts them on YouTube? Totally an early retiree!"
