After 45 years! 40 of those years in this 105 year old building! My last day getting up at 8am. My last day parking in my parking spot. My last day sitting at the desk I put together, in the chair I rescued from the dumpster. My last day making tea in the microwave I bought in 1986. My last day looking out these windows. 
Onward!

    Thanks everyone!  I will not be bored. I am never bored. I will still do all the things that take up a lot of my time - going to the gym, walking, going to the beach, working on political campaigns, doing volunteer work, being on boards, doing pet sitting, doing some minor landscaping jobs. And lots of porch sitting, reading, napping.

    Great news! I am excited for you. I wish you well as you navigate this important transition. I'm glad you're planning to stay busy. I think that that is super important for a person's emotional health once they retire.

    Thanks everyone! I have been retired for 7 days and have been in bed with the flu for 7 days. So that's been fun. Haha.  But hey, I said I wanted to sleep as long as I want and I have been doing that!

    Jeepy, hang in there.  I think it will run its course soon.  It may be your body telling you that you needed a break.  Sometimes our bodies will take over when we don't.  I was told by my chiropractor that my back spasmed out on me becuz it had been injured & I was still going strong.  My body knew it needed me to slow down so it could heal.  Heat packs, bed rest & gentle stretching.  Really interfered with my pole dancing.  ;)

    Late to the party as my wifi's been limited while I'm overseas, but so happy for you. Well for your retirement, not your flu!
    Hope you enjoy every minute of a very long retirement.

    You  need to get well soon, Jeepy, so you can enjoy your retirement! But I do hope you get well soon.
  • JosephineJosephine Posts: 14,408Registered Users Curl Connoisseur
    Oh no that's horrible. I thought I got the flu last week but it only lasted a day and then it felt like a normal cold. Not a great way to start the new year. Are you feeling better now?
  • jeepcurlygurljeepcurlygurl Posts: 20,729Registered Users, Curl Ambassador Curl Virtuoso
    Getting better at a snail's pace. Day 11. Still can't hear. Sinuses and ears plugged. Everything else pretty much gone other than a bit of a lingering cough. Nothing hurts so that's a plus. I will be out and enjoying retirement one of these days!

    After being sick for nearly a month I am now finally starting to enjoy my retirement! Went to a gym class yesterday and today my cousin and I are going to do some day drinking and bar hopping. : )
