Ditto here as well. Have 11 reviews to write this year. Probably going into work this weekend to work on them, in spite of the fact that Saturday is the company Christmas party.

Had a great retirement party yesterday, they gave me a beautiful 3 speed bike. Decided I would rather leave after the party then stay two more days, so vacation time for today and tomorrow. I'm done! Hasn't sunk in yet...

Tailgate is weighing in late on the age thing.. I'm 62

Last real day in office is today... powers of invisibility growing and growing.

Party was Tuesday... I do check in again Monday for a short celebration in the afternoon and then I'm toast.

Surreal! Great feelings of stress being lifted off and floating away, plus some feeling of anticipation...

It's interesting watching the corporate email traffic of all the worker bees and managers still buzzing around the hive doing, what seems to me at this point today, to be inconsequential busy work and pointless tasks...

Cheers!

I ER'd 3 yrs ago and the words "performance appraisals" still makes my heart turn cold.

Congratulations to the class of 2013!

Especially when they have to be done before merit increases are handed out, even if everyone knows there is no correlation.
So glad that cr*p is in the past.

Well today I got my walking papers that included severance, vested stock, bonus, vacation paid out and one last paycheck coming in Jan. MiniCorp may be going out of business so they are cutting back, boss asked if I wanted a reference letter, I told him no thanks because I was retiring. He was like REALLY, and I said I was just waiting for this to close the deal and start a new course for the rest of my life.

Called DW and told her and she started to do the happy dance and told me that we were going out to celebrate.

This will be the first time since I was 12 that I will not be working, seem kind of strange, but I am sure I will get used to it.
