When I walk out of the office at 3:30 pm

I am done.

The goodbyes were hard, I work with some great people who have made my job flexible and for most part enjoyable.

My DH still has a month to go so I will spend it packing up the house, getting organized to move. I am going down to Florida for a weekend to see our kids.

Tonight we are going out for a celebration dinner at a fabulous castle on the lake that we have been saving for a special occasion.

After all the anticipation and planning, it is finally here.....

Yea - Whoopee for you. When you get home, if you have time and will, drop us a line and officially mark the time and date of the last action for the workplace - the drive home. (Unless you plan to still have a role.)

You will LOVE this coming Sunday evening and Monday Morning!!!! ( whatever day of the week is your "Monday" morning)!

On Monday....either get up early and ENJOY your cup of coffee, READ the paper or online until YOU are finished, and then.......well, whatever you want!!!

Or...roll over and go back to sleep!

Congratulations!!!! and ENJOY!!!!
