I'm thrilled for you too! And excited to hear about all the wonderful new things you'll be doing - including doing nothing at all if the mood strikes you.

Nothing like Jersey boy Southside Johnny playing at your party. He and the Asbury Jukes are playing your party, right?

Congrats on your retiremen, Odat!

Right behind you girl! I am down to 4 working days left. April 1, 2, 7, 8.I have sick time I am using or lose it situation. Last official day is April 26. My party is May 9, but the kids at work are up to something, because I have gotten three phone calls at home all wanting to know if I am working for sure on the first.

Way to go makes working like a dog all your life seem worth it!

It's alright... The cake is awesome and the Champagne is even better. This is it honey. The beginning of your new life. Embrace it. Big [[[HUG]]] and losta lovies. :)

Congratulations!!!! I found you via a link at Idaho Daily Photo. I didn't do an official retirement or have a party. I was having some health issues and gave up my job to deal with them. I hadn't intended to retire then, but it looks like I've been forced to do so. My health will never be good enough to promise to show up every day and put in my 8 hours. So, I'm enjoying your party. Good for you for doing the time and earning your retirement!

Akelamalu said...

So that's it! No more work for you! You lucky lady. Enjoy your retirementment Odat, make every minute count. xx

Danielle said...

Enjoy your freedom from the rat race!

Your spirit is so inspiring and your optimism is contagious.

Wishing you all the best.
