My Last Sunday Night Angst

I have one more week of work and then I'm done. No more dreading Monday mornings. Excited, yet a bit nervous to be leaving the security of a paycheck. I won't miss work though....lots on the calendar

I'm right there with you, Dog. Although I've got just a bit of Sunday night angst to go yet; luck of the draw would have it that I pulled weekend duty on my last weekend and am on-call yet for a few more hours - but for the last time! Kind of surreal, I'm not sure what to make of it just yet. DW is four weeks into ER, and she says it still feels like vacation (a really relaxing one) to her.

Enjoy your last week, get ready for lots of coworkers to ask why you have that strange smile and faraway look on your face.

Just 5 more instances of Sunday Night Angst for me.... actually, now that the end is near, my level of angst right at this moment is somewhat muted.

This is really gonna happen.

Just remember , it's not the end, but a start of a new phase of life, and the endless summer.

congratulations, Dog!

Sunday night angst was my first sign it was time to retire. I rarely think of it now, on Sunday evenings, but for a long while I did. Sunday evenings will be so golden for you- for a long time,

Enjoy!!

I too was nervous about leaving the security of a paycheck.....it was all for naught as my pension deposit comes the 1st of the month like clockwork. Congratulations on only one week of work left, best wishes on your retirement.

It's a wonderful feeling.

May the rest of the week be celebratory and non-stressful.
