    You've got that right!!! I love being able to sew without interruption. I have a pile of quilts for homeless families in my living room that is at least 22 quilts high, and I finish more all the time. It is so nice, after all those stressful and busy years of working, to be able to sew whenever I want to! I am also glad I got most of my supplies and fabric when I was working and had the money.

    Congratulations on your retirement. I'm retiring in 3 mos. and 28 days (calendar days) so I know what you mean about the days being weird. I can't wait. Enjoy your leisure mornings.

    I retired at age 48. I was fully vested and had a pension so did I want to keep working just to pay higher taxes or stay home and do what I wanted? I gave my two week notice on Monday and never went back on Tuesday. I told DH I retired he said I just quit. LOL I am busier now then when I was working and so much happier. Won't be long I can apply for SS and that will go into my quilting budget!
    Got fabric?

    Congratulations! I retired a few weeks ago: every day feels like Sunday and being on permanent vacation. I love pushing the " delete" button when e-mails from my former workplace come.( they still hope I 'll be back)
    Life may not be the party we planned for,but while we are here we should dance!

    On my retirement

    Thanks for all the encouragement. I have today and 1/2 day tomarrow. Will be leaving on Sat morning. I will get back to the board and let you all know how things went as soon as I get the internet back. Will probably have to go with satelite. Can't wait to get settled in as I have had my quilting packed up for the last 2 months. I am in withdrawl. Did spend money while I still had it to get more quilting stuff AND a couple of sewing machines. I now have 10. My husband found me a sewing box that was made in Norway and is all wood and in new condition. It opens up and has lots of drawers for stuff. Best part is he only paid $5 for it at the thrift shop.

    One of the greatest pleasures of my retirement is............staying in bed when it's zero and snowing instead of getting ready to get to the job. May you have many new pleasures in Idaho.

    Go Girl! Enjoy yourself! Since retirement, I have found I over commit myself to projects.
