Time For Me

Over the last couple of weeks my hubby and I made the decision that I finally must retire from my full time good paying job. Yes, in this day and age of recession, many jobs lost and an uncertain economy, I am choosing to join the ranks of the unemployed. I do have a good retirement plan, so I will continue to have an income. More important than the income is that I will have time for me and be free of the stress that comes with management positions, dealing with upper management and all along trying to be the advocate and voice of your staff to assure their needs are represented.

What are you gonna do Sylvie now that you have all of this free time coming? I'm going to clean out my closets!

Yeah for Sylvie!

I too gave up a good paying job for retirement and I never looked back. I was lucky my retired husband was there waiting for me.

One suggestion, do what you want but do something. Idle time sounds fun for a while but can weigh you down.

Welcome to the club, girl.

Thank you Moon. I am so looking forward to this. It took a while for me to give up the salary but conditions at work made it too expensive (my sanity) to suffer the stresses there.

well maybe when you do have some idle time moon, me doodles, niece lil bird and you newly retired person could all get together for lunch next fall when we are back in town. Congrats on your decision.

I like the idea. I'll have plenty of free time. Let me know when you all come back to Southern California.

its sad to see you leave and the fact that the bosses above did not like how some of the staff was not doing there share of work caused some stress you got out well you still have your mind . now you can work on your other favorite cooking maybe open a bbq joint or maybe the foodnet work like we talked about at work. im the only one at work that looks at your site
