As a new retiree, you're exhilarated with the notion that each new day dawns with no schedule. You can sleep in or get up early. You can fiddle around the house all day or go out with friends. You can stay out late. You can have another glass of wine and not worry about being alert for a presentation or meeting the next day. You answer to no one but yourself or your significant other.
You start to enjoy yourself. You start traveling to new places. You find wonderful treasures on your travels that you want to bring home. You go out to eat several times a week. You go to plays, concerts and other live entertainment more often.
