Turning 50 today - and TODAY is the day I'm retiring!

Greetings forum. My name is Kathy. I have about 50 letters to sign today to clients, to let them know I am retiring! Then, I'm going to go celebrate with a fabulous dinner with hubby. So exciting!!

Thank you! Right now, I am still in my pjs, about ready to eat breakfast. After I get my letters done today, we are going to go celebrate! Tomorrow, I don't know - maybe the same again. ha

Congrats!!!

What do you plan on doing with your time? Did you report into an office daily? I've been retired 1 year Sept.1st. It's a big adjustment.

Congratulations! Enjoy your dinner.

P.S. Watch the first three minutes of this clip. Quite a contrast between the husband's and wife's retirement send-offs!

Thanks for all the wishes. I will hang out in this forum, just found you. I tend to need to keep busy, so I expect to do some volunteering at school - and also re-learn how to play golf! Thanks again! Kathy
