No more "day job" for Linda!

Recommended Posts

I sit here with my coffee on the first day of my retirement from my day job. The feeling is wonderful!

 

My calendar for the next few months is full of fun---a trip to Disneyland with my sister, guild volunteering, Moxies at my house, the local Arts Walk, the list goes on. On the business side, for the first time in six months I will be caught up on my monthly quilt quota. I try for 6 quilts a month and I've been one quilt behind every month for a while!  I'm busier than ever and need to get better organized--as usual--so I can pencil in some piecing and retreats!

 

I was treated to a tear-producing farewell at work. They called former co-workers who I haven't seen for years to come to a get together after my last shift. The people are what I will miss the most!

 

My job provided me with good pay, great benefits, nice people to work with, and allowed me to have the $$ and time to following a modest dream. For that I'll always be thankful. But I'm glad to move on.

 

Let the fun begin!! :D

CONGRATULATIONS Linda !    Everyone we know who is retired say they are busier now than they were when working their full time jobs...........but busier doing FUN things you WANT to do and not things you HAVE to do.   Enjoy every minute !   As Martha Stewart would say.............."It's a good thing".......... :)  :)  :)  :)  :)  :)

Oh Linda!  Congratulations!  There's nothing like having every day be Friday at 5:00!  Of course, there are those crazy people who retire and then go back to work three years later (me).  Hopefully, you won't have to do that.  I'm building enough cushion now that should I run out of employment (it's actually fun with no responsibilities and I found I actually missed people), I won't need to go back to work.  It also helps that my machine is finally fixed, so I can quilt for a living again!

 

Enjoy it all.  The world's your oyster!
