Yup, today was my last day at my real job. I will miss the people that I work with, the company (SAIC) that has taken such great care of me and the worthwhile job that I did for Marine Corps weather sites. I will not miss the 100 mile a day commute or the 4:30 wake-up call.
On Sep 18th, I turn 62 years old. I never really expected to live this long so it is all good. My first social security check gets here in the 3rd week of November. Until then, it's quilt, quilt, quilt to help pay our bills.
So my best friend, Christi, surprised me last night by bringing this gorgeous vase of flowers to our planned dinner. Chez Sizzler is one of my favs. In a small town, there are not so many choices for dinner. The flowers were wonderful and people kept stopping by to comment on them. It was a great dinner, shared with friends. (Christi, Anna and me). Now I start a new phase of my life.
My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
