Today I received a recognition pin for 30 years of state service.  I have worked for the State of Oklahoma for 30 years.  Where did the time go?  If I counted the time I worked at the University of Oklahoma it would be 34 years of state service but then who's counting.

I honestly don't know where the time has gone.  Oh, there are days when I feel every minute of it but for the most part it has been a smooth ride.  

I've been thinking a lot about retirement though and I probably started thinking about it a little too soon.  My plan is to work until January 1, 2016 but that honestly seems like an eternity away.  My body and spirit are telling me it needs to be sooner but my pocketbook is in complete disagreement.  Guess I will have to give myself a mental pep talk if I'm going to make it.  

Thirty years down and thirty months to go.

I just read the following quote somewhere:
The days are long but life is short.
So true.

Retirement is a big decision and there is always the worry about money. However, when the time is right you just know.
