My parents do quite a bit of that now that they are retired, but interesting enough they both still dabble (although volunteer now) in their respective lines of work still.

Well it would all depend on my situation of my life at that time. If I had grandkids, maybe I would be doing things with them. Maybe I would join some groups with people in my age group. Not sure.

I would "fund" my activities with my retirement money of course that I am working for now-lol!!

Well he needs a ride home, but he doesn't have to "wait" for the ride because I'm fairly flexible as to when I can pick him up, the current chosen time is 5pmish, his choice.

"I never said sahp's had 100% freedom."

This statement implies that I said, that you said, that's what you thought.
I can assume, from this statement, that you do not think that sahm's have 100% freedom, but you never actually said that either.

Would you move from the area to a retirement place as your parents did or stay in the area of your grandchildren if at all possible?

I do like that I generally have the flexibility to take of days when I choose, as long as I haven't made any commitments for that day.

The middle schools here use mac, but the highschool uses hp. Dh refuses to go mac, lol.

Both kids have laptops that will last them for an eternity! And, lucky for them, with dh being the techy that he is, they are always getting the best updates.

I'm pretty sure I could find lots of things to do with the extra time, but I'm pretty easily amused. I have lots of projects I would like to work on, but I just don't have enough time.

It is nice to be able to choose whatever (to a point of course) you want, whenever (to a point of course again) you want. THAT is what I consider 100% freedom.

So, you are spending your whole life working, just wating for retirement?

To be clear, I know that ONE of the reasons we work is to fund retirement. But, what I'm getting from your post, is that you do not enjoy what you do now, you're just kind of biding your time, until you can do what you really want. Is that correct?
