I don’t get the word retirement. To use the prefix “re” should mean “back” or “again” but it is not as if you are tiring again. In fact, retirement would more appropriately be coined as relaxing or reliving if truly trying to capture the spirit of what retirement is meant to be. I mean, generally one who retires has been working through the majority of their existence and so, to re-tire does not seem the appropriate term. And while I have not been burning the midnight oil, I have experienced working outside the home and being a mother in tandem and I think it was more tiring than my next few months may be.
