Plan to submit my resignation letter on Monday, with a "last day available for work" date of May 15. Am giving a longer-than-required notice as I have to turn the entire program and admin portfolio for our office over to our new Director and there is a lot going on. Should be able to wrap up most of the current urgent programming work by then, and set him/my colleagues up reasonably well for the late spring/early summer rush. And I decided an extra few weeks of income/PTO accrual would not be a bad thing. Will have about 6 weeks to work on things related to my transition back to the US. Still not 100% sure that this is a permanent FIRE move for me -- may try to find some PT/consulting work to pad the stash, or even take another full time job once I am settled a bit back in the US.


There is a small chance they may offer me a PT/consulting role, and depending on what it is I might consider it. But in my heart I feel I am ready for a nice long break -- need to get back to a better state mentally and physically. The last 18 months has taken a real toll on me.

Enjoy the martini's! We are taking our extended family to The Melting Pot for dessert fondues. Doesn't seem possible that the day is so near.

I edited my entry as "42" since the line through "Jan" doesn't seem to copy. I retired February 27 so I've been retired a whole three weeks.

I've been congratulated before but feel free.....

Only three more w*rk days (plus the rest of today) to go. I don't have much to do here. I wanted to meet with my boss and help him understand some data/plots I am transferring to him so he can write the report, but he's too busy. When he tries to write the report, he might wish he made time for me. Oh well-- not my problem.

I might just leave early today so I can get a long run in before dark.

"20. RobLJ - May thru August - age"

Probably will be July 2, 2105, although it's not locked in stone. We bought the house in Reno last weekend, so the wheels are turning quickly.

RobLJ age 56.

Class distribution:

0 people in 30's. (0%)
16 people in 40's (20%)
41 people in 50's (53%)
9 people in 60's. (12%)
No age indicated 12 ( 15%)

Interesting.

I would consider anyone below 55 being an "early" early retiree and above 55+. being a "regular" early retiree.

Different needs and considerations of those two macro groups for sure.

I am on the list at No. 29 retiring in April 2015 at age 56.

April 2015 has now arrived - and I have put plans to retire on hold for a while.

The reality is I have been financially independent for a least the last 6 years but I am actually enjoying my current work and lifestyle. I don't work too hard - I am basically self employed and can work as much as I like when I like.

I have not worked out what I would do to fill in my time if I was to retire.

So I guess I may as well keep doing what I am doing.

Fortunate thing is I could change my mind at any time and be able to stop working.

I think this is a deferral for a maximum of 3 years, but it is not happening in April 2015 - my choice and my decision.
