It’s Time…

“All is well that ends well.”

~William Shakespeare~

It’s official.

I’m retiring.

The sun is setting on forty-four years of work life.

It’s time to mosey out the door for good.

Last day in the office: September 2, 2020.

In exactly six weeks and one day, I shall be free.

Free of this work, at last.

More thoughts to come in the days and weeks ahead.

Just thought you should know…

    Congrats, Mary! It looks like I can join you next week. I’m (pre-) retiring the first day of August.

      Thanks Herman! Congrats on the pre-retirement and eventual full retirement. We will both have more time to harass or love our furry friends.

    Congratulations. I retired at the end of 2016 and once I got used to not having to work on projects, answer urgent calls, and be on call 24×7, it’s been great.

  6. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Say goodbye to the alarm clock, conference calls, meetings, complaining employees, and all the other BS that is required in the working world. Welcome to the club!

  7. I know what a huge decision that is, Mary J. Kudos. Now stick to your guns, because long about August they will start begging. 😉 Good luck. Hugs on the wing.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      They are already begging and coming up with reasons for me to stay. I just laugh and say nope, not staying.

      • Excellent! LOL, just get a little tape recorder, and play it back to them.
        I retired earlier than I’d like, but couldn’t be avoided. I gave a full year of notice. They didn’t believe me. Oh well.

      Thanks Heather. I’ll be happy to do all those things (and more once we’re no longer concerned with a pandemic). I’m hoping to join a local writing club and volunteer more when it’s safe to go out again.

  8. Yippee – I’m so happy for you. Is your head spinning with all the ideas of things you’ll do once you’re retired? I look forward to seeing how well you’ll do in retirement. Congrats, Mary!

      My head will be spinning once the pandemic is over. I have some plans that involve people once we can all be together again wihout masks and social distancing.

    How exciting to be preparing for this new adventure! I remember writing the number of days left on each day of my calendar.
