Congratulations, you will survive the week and move on to bigger and better things.

Woo hoo, I'm done! Last day was yesterday. I slept for 11 hours straight (which I rarely do), and I'll be seeing a community theatre show with my parents this afternoon.

Oddly, I don't feel elated or different. I don't think it'll hit until 2-3 weeks out. Also, I have an ambitious novel writing goal I want to hit, so I guess my mind has already shifted into my new career. I really should give myself a week to decompress, but old go-go-go habits die hard.

Thank you again for helping me through this crazy journey to FI!

Oh my. My BS bucket has overflowed! I was on vacation for four days and apparently I miscalculated when I was getting my floating holidays. I have to take 9 hours without pay. When I told my boss I would come back from vacation early to work the hours on the weekend she texted me back and said no, that they had spent too much time on my time card already and caused a lot of problems. That I need her approval to make up the hours. We are still in our pay period and many people have had their time cards changed on Monday. I told her I couldn't afford the time without pay. Nope, she said she won't let me. First of all, not sure that is legal - I work for a city and I am making up the time during the period in which I took leave and she is therefore denying me the opportunity to make back my money. AND, I hate her right now and just want to retire even earlier than I thought but money wise, not a good idea. She's been mad at me since I announced my retirement and said I'm being too gleeful and to tone it down. I did. She thinks I'm not doing my job - which I am. I called the woman who does my time cards and I apologized and she said it was no big deal but that my boss did say she would not let her change my hours on Monday. I'm going into HR on Monday to see if what she did was legal. But how will I last 6 more months with this b*tch? I almost feel like this is her way to make me leave sooner as she now sees me as dead wood. I know she'll call me in on Monday to yell at me. And to top it all off - today is my friggin' birthday!

I would just keep smiling at her like the Chesire cat. I'm sure that will make you feel better and will probably drive her up the wall
