    We have financial options we would rather not do, but it's aces in the hole just in case. Agree about more years with less money.

    Husby has been having back pain for several weeks and it flared up over the weekend. He said it felt much better after he talked to his supervisor this morning. A retired coworker told him last week he will be surprised about all the aches and pains that go away after retirement. It won't surprise me because he internalizes unpleasant stuff. I eat instead and just gain weight.

    My chiropractor mentioned that when people retire their visits to him drop off a lot (he waved his hand basically like dropping off a cliff.)

    It appears I will be retiring sooner than planned. The company takeover that happened on Feb 1 has simply caused too much havoc. I was told to either sign the non-compete agreement or be fired. So I will sign it but planning to leave before the end of the year. And job prospects look poor due to the non-compete. Unfair, but not worth the stress of trying to stay there or find a new job. So I'll be thinking of what I want to do next and ways to make that happen. There are some things that need to be done (getting parents' house ready for sale for example). But after that I'll want a new "occupation".

    It's kind of scary but you'll get through it. Sorry your job situation got so bad.

    Our biggest issue was how to pay for health insurance, but in the end the answer became obvious for our particular situation.
