Threw in the towel, hung it up, burnt out, drug up, the time is now......yipee! As of this week, I am RETIRED! I was given the option by My Cute Man, Mr. Phil, to retire. After much consideration, (about 5 minutes), I told my boss, Mr. Phil, of my decision. He was taken by surprise, but accepted my resignation. It is bittersweet, since My Cute Man's workload has increased. I really hate to see him working so hard and can't wait for him to join me in retirement. When that happens, we plan to take off in our little Winnebago and follow the sun.
OK, what's up with the dictionary definition of "Retirement"?? No longer working because you have reached the age where you are officially too old to work (What???? It's more like because you have reached the age that you better enjoy life before you are too old to play!)
A few acronyms:
ROF Retired Old Farts
RWH Retired With Husband
RBNT Retired But Not Tired
RHF Retired Halfassed Fool
ARA Actively Retired Adults
AARP Association for Armed Retired People
ORF Old Retired Fart
ORF Our Retired Friends

This is the first year that Baby Boomers will qualify for Medicare. Although I am a Boomer, I have a few years to go before the big 65. Ouch! Unbelievable how quickly the time slips away! I still can't account for about 20 of those years. ; )
I have heard that the trouble with retirement is that you never get a day off! (I think I can handle it!)

Retirement itself is the best gift. No gold watch could ever top it.

So, I'm off to enjoy my new journeys!

Deb, you are just rubbing my mose in it. In six months I plan on joining you in your new life state by hanging it up myself. I just need to wrap up a few things and make a clean turnover. I am looking forward to joining you and noticing the signs.

Thanks for leaving my first comment, Pheeps, aka Mr. Phil!

Let me say that I am very happy that you will be with me on my path.

And you have the cutest "mose" ever!
