Living in retirement: Why we worry about our grown children

In our Living in Retirement blog, a recent retiree chronicles the ups and downs of her real-life retirement journey.

On Saturday night eight of us met for dinner at the home of my long-time colleague. All of us are in our late fifties or early sixties. Two have retired and one will be retiring shortly.
