I cheated and put Nunthewiser at #15 (bolded), and with FedExCourier, we're back up to 132. Congrats to the Class of 2015!!!

Oh, if we have any late posters in 2015 who want to be added, I'll do a few more updates the first couple of months of the new year.

When I first saw this thread I wondered what happened to me and then I realized it was 2014 and not 2015. As for not working in 2014, it almost applies to me. I have really slacked off starting around October. My heart is really not in it anymore but I'm still going in. I'll resign/retire on 5 January 2015. Transition period TBD.

I have worked harder this year, and felt more fettered, at home, than I ever did at w*rk - by all the deferred issues and maintenance. Tenant trouble; fixing up the townhouse for sale; so endlessly much needing to be done to the house; medical and dental adventures; on and on. With all work-related excuses to procrastinate gone, and the pressure on to make our own home potentially sellable, I've had time to get into the guts and details I avoided for so long.

Example: It took over 50 Amethyst-hours to untangle, organize and label my sewing and embroidery supplies. Talk about deferred maintenance! I found hobby supplies I didn't remember owning, and was able to defy the temptation to buy even more.

Unless I get fired in the next 24 hours I won't make the class of '14. While I'm getting close I won't make any projections again. Congrats to those who made it!

I made it!!! Wow, maybe I can take your place and be just one seat away from brewer12345 on the risers. How cool would that be? Bet nun would be thrilled. Who ever said 13 was an unlucky number?
Just what time is graduation, anyway?

For those of you who watch ESPN, Sports Center and know who Stuart Scott is I am sorry to say he passed today. Cancer. He was 49 years old. I was a fan and I am also 49 years old. It reminds me that I need to punch out of here sooner than later. This coming week is my last scheduled. I am half heartedly looking for another job. Technically don't need one but DW wants to pad the finances. I'll give updates as they come. RIP Stuart Scott.

After 20 years at the megahospital, December 31st was my last day. About a week before the 31st, my manager asked what I wanted for the usual retirement fare: cake or cookies; I opted for cake. When the 31st arrived, a few of my close colleagues took me out to lunch. Then I packed up my personal belongings, turned in my badge and parking pass. No cake ever arrived (not that I needed the calories!!). No exit interview. No pension packet even though I had requested it twice. As I walked to the elevators, several staff ran up to me and asked if I had been fired. No, I told them, I was retiring. Wish I would have thought to pull out my phone and take a picture of all those shocked expressions. Seems my manager or the director had not sent any notification out to the department, which is pretty standard for long term employee retirements. Guess I could have been offended, but why. I'm just glad to be done and outta there.

Four days of retirement. Four nights of dreaming about work and waking up at 4:45am. Might take awhile to get that out of my system!
