Re: ER Christmas Gift

Congradulations Loveslife. Sometimes I think office parties should be banned. I have heard too often comments like yours. If you haven't told your customers, this quote from you might be just the thing to say:

Quote:
I am so ready to relax and enjoy this next phase of my life. I'm young, healthy, have 2 wonderful children, and a great husband.

Re: ER Christmas Gift

Thank you all for the good wishes. I am so HAPPY. I called my boss on Monday and told him that I would not be working after the end of this month in the main office and just a few sessions in the outer office to finish things up there. By the tone of his voice, he sounded like he knew it was coming down to this. (At the company Christmas party, his very drunk wife who is half owner of this dynasty, said horrible things about me to anyone who was willing to listen.) Oh well, their loss.

Now my priority is to take care of myself, find new things to do and rediscover some of my old hobbies. I also need to restucture the portfolio for retirement.

Re: ER Christmas Gift

Martha,

<<< I am so ready to relax and enjoy this next phase of my life. I'm young, healthy, have 2 wonderful children, and a great husband.>>>

Thank you for the great idea. That's exactly what I will tell them. Who could argue with that?
