Retirement - I can almost touch it
Wow, I'm so ready for retirement that I'm struggling to go to work. I've already begun the phasing out of my job..it actually started while I was off having my hip surgery. My replacement was hired and has been here almost a year so I have less and less to do. It's really hard finding my place and yet I'm not leaving until November 1st. I had planned to go August 1st but didn't realize I wouldn't receive my first social security check until the end of September. It takes 3 months before I will start receiving my state retirement. I don't want to spend so much of our savings to carry us for that long so I guess I will have to delay retirement another 2 to 3 months. It is going to be hard to wait. I'm ready for the next chapter of my life.
