Chapter 4, Page 9, Book 10



The very last and final day of work has finally come! At 4:00 today I am officially retired!!!

DD and her hubby are taking me out for dinner this evening to celebrate!

I’ll be making this entry really short today as I spent way too much time yesterday evening trying to get my new laptop set up. For some reason I was having trouble setting up my e-mail account.

Everything else is working fine though.

Hopefully tomorrow I’ll have it working right and will be sending my e-mail just fine

HAVE A FANTASTIC FRIDAY EVERYONE!

Oh Ma, it's finally here. Retirement Day. And you are officially a retired person. I wish you many happy days with your grandbabes and doing things you've been waiting to do. Enjoy the next part of your life as a woman who does what she wants, when she wants.

Congratulations! I retired February 1, 2007 at 3:30pm. If you're like me, within 6 moths you'll wonder how you ever had time to work. Now you can stay up late & sleep in. Linda in Washington
