I gave verbal notice two weeks ago, and filled out the "voluntary separation" papers yesterday. No going back now! Now I've got to finish a few projects and get ready for the repatriation move in June. There's lots of work there...getting ourselves, our stuff, and dog ready to get packed and shipped back to CA. Also get rid of the 220v appliances and other extra stuff that has accumulated in these past 5 years. We'll be bringing new teak dining and living room furniture home with us (made of second-hand teak).

Please let us know how you and your to do list get along. I have mine from when I retired 11 years ago - with most of the items still pending.
I retired only one week ago tomorrow. I am making progress on my to do list. I'd better, there was a lot of deferred maintenance.

I bought milk yesterday that has a longer expiry date (May 1) than my career does (April 28).

That was weird.

Love it! I noticed the same thing for me and the expiration notice said "best before X date". I laughed to myself and thought, yep not getting anymore flesh from me after that date

I can't figure out what the tag on my head says, but the one on my body reads, "Best if used before 1988."

Bumped my date from March to Dec. Starting to push that OMY syndrome. Doing some remodeling on the house then want to sell it before retiring. Is seems I don't work as fast as I did 30 years ago and weekends used to be much longer.

Moved my date up from June 30 to June 3rd. Had some personal time I was owed (and would not be compensated for), so I am done in less than seven weeks!

So this Weds I give verbal notice of my plans to retire on July 5. I offered to work PT at home to help transition some key projects under construction at about 30-40 hrs / month until early 2017. This also would ensure an extra years retirement match (about $5,000 more). Win win really. Got asked to w*rk 20 hours per week until they can find my replacement, but no longer than end of year, then PT as needed for as long as I want from home. During the half time 20 hrs/week period I only need to come in the office once per week for part of a day to help my current one person junior engineer staff. So I said sure and they seemed pretty appreciative. My goal was to leave on a good note so I still have a PT consulting option so this seems like a good arrangement. I will lose benefits at 20 Hrs/ week or less though. I will switch our family to my wife's plan.

Gave notice April 1, 2016.

Lunchtime party with pizza and cake on 4/22/16.
Currently using up compensation time for all but 1/2 day on Thursday. Two more lunches with co-w*rkers this week.

This is kinda like senior ditch week with a big party Friday night as my final sendoff.

Schools out for summer, schools out forever!

It looks like the average age of retirement of the Class of 2016 is 55.4 years old. Outstanding!
