Handed in my notice at work yesterday, putting me on track for my 05 Oct ER date. I got high fives from many in my workplace, however my family were a little shell shocked that I actually did it. They'll get over it, 'cause I sure have!

I have reduced my work week to 3 days for the remaining time in the company and will be out in October.
DH enjoys his last week at school and is out on Friday.
We are planning long weekends and bike rides.
Summer is good!

Wow Chris2008,

For a second, I thought I wrote this one. The only difference between yours and mine is that my 3 days a week ends in December and I don't live in Germany! DH just ended a teaching career. I just went to 3 days per week and we love to bike!

Live is indeed good.

Me too. Last full-time day is Friday 7/26/2013. Boss convinced me to do some part-time, up to two days/week, until he retires in March 2014. I think they'll get tired of me before that.

Congratulations! I suspect 7/26/13 will always have special significance for us. Coincidentally, one of my colleagues today asked me if I would "consult" with her team on an ongoing basis. Why not? I feel I shouldn't pass up an opportunity to earn a little retirement dough on my terms without the office BS.

Looks like I'm joining the class, too. Company's agreed to let me drop down to part-time/flex status next month. DW's on board since it will give me essentially complete control of vacation schedule for 1st time since, well, forever

My last day was the Aug 1st.
Still feels like a long weekend.
Am sure it will sink in soon.
Friends say it takes a few weeks.
Looking at jumbo CD ladders today. LOL LOL

I started this class of 2013 thread, and my plan was to retire in January. Plans change though...and now I'm most likely going to be the last one to go out this year....thinking hard about Dec. 30 or 31. Absolutely WILL be in 2013, though!

For me, it feels like summer vacation when you were a kid. Big smile, dreams of what lies ahead for the summer, great relief from a burden you have been bearing, euphoria.

There's that feeling for sure, but also will miss some folks at the j&b & some aspects of the professional activities pursued for 3+ decades.

Moving to the Class of 2014

Sorry Class but I have been offered a one year extension on my contract at work. I like the job and it is quite stress free so I decided to stay on for another year. DW is also looking for a change in career so this will give us a safety cushion while she makes a change. Congrats for all you successful 2013'ers
