    I did it!!!!!

    Today I turned in my retirement notice. Bad news is that I have to give a 6 mo. notice.
    Boy is this going to be a long 6 months! I told my DH we need to plan a trip to leave on August 22 (last day is August 21) so I have something to plan for in the next 6 months. Just think how many quilts I'll be able to do now. yippee!

    congratulations - retirement is a great life. However, I don't get nearly as much sewing done as I'd thought since there are so many other things that I can do now that I'm retired.

    Good for you! Now you'll have something to plan for. It will be a long 6 months. But you will do it.

    I retired six years ago....if they would just increase the number of hours in a day to 48, I might make some headway! What kind of work do you do that requires that long a notice? OUCH!

    boy if you weren't all the way in Wisconsin I'd come work your last six months for you. Have loads of fun being "retired".
