    Yesterday I told my boss I am leaving.

    86 days
    12 weeks and 2 days. But I am not counting. :rolleyes:

    My wife told me I am too busy to work. I have music to play, fiction to write, a grandson to spoil, volunteer work to do, basses to upgrade, a house that needs work, bike rides to take, baking to do, recipes to create etc, etc, etc.
    Hoping to bring in a few bucks with my fiction and playing music. Probably not realistic but at least I will be doing the things I love.

  3. "A house that needs work." Number six on the list that has playing bass as #1? Mrs. Bake is a keeper for sure.:thumbsup:

  4. Good for you. This is definitely a big change in lifestyle. One thought. Not sure if you are 65 or not, but I hope you made provisions for medical insurance after retiring.

    BIG congrats to you, sir!

    Does this mean we'll be reading more than the usual amount (re: large :p) of posts from you then?

    Don't know yet but I am looking forward to getting lots of sleep in the first month. After that I will sort things out.

    Mrs. Slobake wants to go to Italy, Spain and Greece. Probably not all in the same trip.

    Taking a chance giving them three months notice. I really want things to go well for my co-workers and our clients. I also really need to work to the end of the year. I don't think they will let me go before that but there is always a chance. I thought it was worth it to do what I think is the right thing.
