Want2retire is retired!
 
I used to be known as Want2retire on this forum, but today is my retirement day so I had my username changed. Since so many people call me W2R for short, it seemed like a good choice. Besides, "Wonderful2Retire" is just too long to suit me! :laugh:

I have completed my "to do" list here at work and have erased it off my whiteboard. All I have left to do is to turn in my badge, parking permit, and exit clearance on the way out the door.

It is SO FANTASTIC to make a long term plan and to finally implement it! I really appreciate the support all of you have given me through the years.

And as for the inevitable "How does it feel?":

You'll love it! Enjoy.

Congratulations.

Will the "Want2retire" name be up for auction? Could be some stiff competition for that one.:laugh:

Congratulations!!! But, what are you gonna do all day?;D

Surely you will miss crunching numbers.:laugh:

Rustic23 11-09-2009 07:47 AM

Congrats! How big is the smile. Guess W2R could stand for wise2retire.

kowski 11-09-2009 07:48 AM

Good for you, love it when a plan comes together.

MuirWannabe 11-09-2009 07:50 AM

Congrats! Awesome to reach such a big goal.

I like the new user name but very glad you didn't change your avatar :)

kaneohe 11-09-2009 07:53 AM

Congrats!! I want to know if your countdown clock counting days to go was automated or did you, with glee and eager anticipation, do that manually every day. Better grab some rocks so you don't float away in exhilaration. Enjoy!

Very modern new name, W2R--like KFC became the new official name for that poultry place, but yours is more intriguing.

Welcome to the club. I hope you don't have too much trouble completing all the initiation procedures now that you're "in" :)
