Thank you everyone! I am excited and got my farewell e-mail ready to send today. My boss flew in yesterfday on my retirement lunch and my dear wife is taking a day off to come celebrate at the office. Several people in my group had tears when I make the annoucement, it was touching. My boss asked my to extend for another month and I told him No because it is better this way, there will be always some more BS reasons. It feels good and I will update on the 15th and there after. Almost FIRE, I told my daughters I soon be FIREed and they asked what it means. I told them they need to be ready as well and went thru their 401K with them, I want to make sure they will be able to do the same as well at my age or sooner.

Thank you, most Sunday nights in the past 5 years I have to log on approve time cards, update on events and get ready for Monday. Not this Sunday. BTW just got the pension package from MegaCorp, since I am a bit short on the monthly to cover the expenses until 62, we decided to check the 5 years certain and life annunity box as I have life insurance until 80 years old so my DW is covered. 100% contingent annunity will cost a reduction of $300/month. Does it make sense ?

Hello everyone, so far this week I have been getting up about 8 am, take about an hour walk up the hill to watch the sunrise. I have just missed it all three day as I need to get up much earlier...oh well. I am still pretty busy with paperwork on the retirement plan etc. But the walk is a good start and never noticed the landscape and the details. More to report next week. Thanks!
