With retirement now within a handful of days, many coworkers have been stopping me and congratulating me, and wishing me well in the next chapter of life. However, it is not lost upon me that it is just not me that is retiring. It is a husband and wife team that is shifting from one way of life to the next.
You see, my wife has performed the harder task of managing our household over the last few decades, enabling me to focus on managing the middle for outside teams. And she has done a bang-up job.
So, now the task at hand is to divvy up the chores to enable each of us to enjoy personal and common interests as we close one door and open the next.
