I initially thought August 31, but decided July 31 is better. :D

I am quitting my job as of July 31, 2009!
woot!!!!!

Been there for 30 years come May, and I really want to be a stay at home dog mom, and do domestic stuff.


On June 1, I get 4 weeks of vacation (paid, if I don't use it), and on July 1, the firm contributes to my pension plan (a month's salary)...

then I exit, graciously, happily

counting the days.... :D :D :D

Oh Sandy, you don't know how LONG I've waited for this.
Tomorrow I let the 2 partners w/whom I work closely know. :scare: :scare:
***bites fingernails***

I want to enjoy my life while I'm still able to, take care of my mom, and get our house in order.

Which is scary, because Japanese say that when you start "nesting" and if you're not pregnant, something may be wrong and you are subconsiously preparing for.... :scared: :no:

Unless you are Japanese, don't worry about what the Japanese say! If you are Japanese then maybe some fung shui! I believe that if you see the glass half full then good things will come your way. I envy your making this decision...it's wonderful!! I will retire in 4.5 years, I'm counting the days as well, last count was somewhere around 1400 days!!

Oh how very exciting for you!!

Linda, I'm so happy for you. I'm now a retired stay-at-home mom. I love every minute of it. I love being with Buddy and doing volunteer work. I love staying in bed just because I can.

Linda, Happiness is being retired. I highly recommend it. If you can, go for it. Nothing like enjoying life's pleasures while you are able. It sounds like you've worked long and hard for this day.
