Today's my Last Day

Well I just concluded my exit interview. Over the phone while filling boxes for FedEx. Everything is ending on a high note as I was hoping.
I'd like to thank everyone on this forum who has helped greatly with the process. When I joined in March 2009 (remember those days?) I wondered if this would ever happen.
Now I think it's about time to unwind and let it all soak in.
All the best to you all and thanks again.

Thanks. We've got a road trip planned for next week. Running down to Key West with stops in NC for our Grandsons 4th birthday and a stop in PA to visit DM on the way back.

At the end of my first day, I am amazed at how much more relaxed I feel. Husband and I still find ourselves laughing for no particular reason. It is glorious.

CONGRATULATIONS!!

What a wonderful post to read. It's great to set a goal, work for it, and finally achieve that goal.

It may take a while to unwind but the process is fun too.
