Been a member here for a few years but finally decided to make my first post. Have a little extra time now. Last day of w*rk was 12/31/20. Have been FI for a few years but the job wasn’t bad and I really liked my coworkers. With Covid, we’ve been working from home since March so I really didn’t get to see my work peeps anymore and decided it was time. As my good fortune would have it, the company came out with a buyout offer shortly after I announced my retirement. I was eligible for it but had to work a few more months than I had planned but it was well worth it.
I’m 63, so not really early by a lot of folk’s standards but I always considered 65 as kind of “standard” retirement date so I’m calling it early.
I’ve learned a lot and been entertained a lot on this site so thank you all! My favorite thread is probably the “blow that dough” thread. I’ll need to make that mindset shift from saving to spending. DW already has. Haha
Anyhow, just wanted to stop by and say hi. Cheers all!
