I don't know if I could handle that many more days to go! Looking at 6 days to go here. Oh, yah, CONGRATS and doesn't it feel real good to finally be there.

Congrats T-bird. I think you and Retire2013 need a countdown timer of some sort

Everyday is just one more "farewell" lunch with one coworker or another, right? It is really nice to have made all the friends over the years. Do you notice that, for the most part, everyone seems to share in our happiness? Congratulations to YOU!

You are correct, if things were like this during my last w*rking years I may have fallen into the OMY trap ... not really but it probably would have been a thought It will go by quickly and then off to the new world of ER. DW has been trying it out since her ER in May of 2012. She hasn't got one single bad thing to say. This is from someone that was looking at OMY but finally said she had enough. She has filled her time with things she wants to do and she is an ER happy camper.

Congrats! I remember I did my own countdown leading to that big day. This is still new for me -- I'm in my 3rd week of ER and it is a blast. Enjoy your countdown.
