On My Way Out

Tonight I can’t wipe the smile off my face!  It’s all over but the shouting now and I do feel a load has been removed from me.  I only have to work 3 more days then go on vacation and retire on October 29th.  Got most of my paperwork done today and that damned list is almost finished.  I ended up in the financial advisor’s office for almost 4 hours but he walked me through more than my pension and I’m grateful for that.  I took him a copy of my list and I think he knew how stressed I was feeling because he went out of his way to help.  I’ll have to send that man a very nice Christmas card.

I have tomorrow to wrap up all this leftover stress list and then perhaps I will be able to relax and start to really look forward to retirement.  I was very pleased that the financial outlook was rosier than I thought; now I just have to live a long life and enjoy what has taken me most of my life to build.  There is still an element of unreality to this whole retirement thing.  It’s hard to believe it’s really, really true.  I wonder how long it’ll be before it dawns on me what I have done, and have I done the right thing?  Jeez, what a thought!!!!!!!!!!!
