I'm getting a bit nervous, but really excited! I get my bonus tomorrow, so that will be out of the way. Then I meet with HR to ask them a couple of questions before I solidify my notice and departure dates. Plan is to announce next Wednesday that I'll be quitting March 2. So excited! Two weeks notice is plenty of time for me....

Welcome to the class of 2016! I'm planning on giving notice in a little over a month. Getting nervous. Getting excited. Getting out of here.

Gave my notice last Monday morning. Boss and a few others were shocked. I gave them two weeks, they asked me to stay an additional week and work from home. Sounds good to me! I had been stealthily reassigning tasks and reducing my workload over the past few weeks, so the transition for new folks is easy. I feel the hard part is over. March 9 is my very last day. It's coming fast. My boyfriend will be retiring as well. We're in our early 50s. It feels like a dream. The best part will be when we start living in out travel trailer full time in April. So glad to get rid of the house and everything in it.

Not entirely certain what the happy dance emoji signifies, but if it means you actually retired, then I am dancing away!
