Early Christmas Present!

Some of you may recall my story about going back to w*rk. The contract I am was on was supposed to go through the end of the year but I was *just* notified that there is very little left to do and those that want out early can go effective immediately and let me tell you, I have NEVER responded to an email faster in MY LIFE!

It's somewhat comical in that things had gotten pretty busy this week and they added 10 more attorneys to the team...yet now they want people to leave early. Ah, corporate America...making sense for hundreds of years!

No matter, as of RIGHT NOW, I am re-retired and have NO PLANS to go back to w*rk again. What a stupid decision.

So, time to pour up an adult beverage and relax!

See here, good to do things twice. Once to experience it, second time to confirm initial opinion.
