COB Today is the Day

Well as a proud member of class of 2013 I will be offically ER'd at or before COB today. Been almost in a daze walking around BS'ing with others at w*rk. I cannot get the smile off my face DW has been setting the stage with her ER last year and I am ready to add my name to the reached ER group. W*rk has asked if I could do some specialized training that I have been doing after I am gone and I have agreed to do that which averages out to two days a month or less. I think I can handle that Hay if it gets to be too much I can alway quit

Just had to mention it to you all and with all the assistance I have received from this site I feel good about making a successful transition

TODAY IS THE DAY!!

T-bird
Class of 2013 no more waiting
DW Class of 2012

Congratulations! It is exciting to see someone actually reach the retirement starting line, after they've been posting in anticipation. I think it encourages many others.

Thanks for sharing the joy!
