Congratulations, best wishes, and welcome to my standing offer to all early retirees:
If you're ever passing through southwestern Ohio, I'll cheerfully buy you a [good] beer to help celebrate.
A couple of members will vouch for the validity of that offer.

At this moment it kinda feels surreal - something I've planned for the last 2 years with lots of analysis, number crunching, talking it over with my DW, even appointments with 2 independent financial planners, on-line retirement calculators - including Firecalc.

And now it comes down to the day of giving final notice at w*rk.

Feels like a good...really good...dream!

Congratulations. But I do have to ask, what kind of place do you work in where you would be concerned that they might walk you to the door when you announce your retirement?

FIRE on 3/9, 9 weeks away. Was going to give notice today, but after reading a discussion regarding giving notice on BH, decided to wait til first week of February, giving only 4 weeks notice. I want to remain in control of this situation right up until the end. If things go awry before 3/9, I don't trust myself to not just walk out the door.

Resignation submitted but my end date could be as much as 3 months out. I agreed to finish the project I'm on or until I'm not needed.

I'm leaving when there really isn't an overabundance of work. Our Upstream division will undoubtedly have layoffs. My Downstream group is not in critical shape but the amount of new work is slowing.

My boss and the company have been very good to me. I am carrying around an empty BS bucket. Nothing is making me leave from the employment end. It's just time. It's actually been time to go about three years ago.

Where's BBQ-nut? I didn't mean to beat him to the formal announcement here but it looks like I did.
