    Very cool locations, my son lived in London and graduated college there, he married a Bulgarian woman, his best man was from South Africa, and my youngest goes to college in Bosten. After you visit Aruba you will find it is the best place of all

    This has really been a fun thread to read so I'll share. I manage a very large Editorial/Production department for a Boston area nonprofit that develops and publishes fire safety codes. I've been with the company for close to 30 years. The deadlines are really stressful at times but everyone thinks that I'm the calm one. They just don't know it's making me crazy inside. That said, it's a wonderful organization with an important mission, but I still can't wait to retire, just 18 more months. DH is retiring from the City in March, after 42 years, and just a few weeks later we'll be in Aruba celebrating.

    Andrea, There was a time that I thought it would really bother me to go to work while he got to stay home, but he's very helpful with things that need to get done around the house and is agreeable to taking on a little more during the transition. We both also have a lot of outside interests independently, so I don't think we'll make each other crazy.

    So does that mean your dh will have to do all the cooking until you retire?

    OMG would never leave cooking to him. He once tried to make french fries by trying to fry sliced potatos in a stick of butter! Fortunately, I like to cook and if he doesn't mind doing the housework we'll be ok.
