Retirement Thoughts

Attended a retirement information session on Saturday. The fact that I am retlring 4 months from today, June 30, is really sinking in and it is a bit scary because it is so final.

Tomorrow starts another work week and I am that much closer to retirement. Ninety-five work days to go (including tomorrow) and that time will fly by. June 30th will be here before you know it.

Twenty-one weeks from today will be my final workday with the MWRA. As I get closer to that big day, I am getting apprehensive. I am still 98% sure I will retire on June 30, 2004, but it is a huge step. I think a good part of my concern is the fact that I am admitting that I am getting old. There is nothing wrong with getting old; I still feel I have a lot to offer and hopefully have a lot of mobile years left. However, my pending retirement forces me to admit that I am no longer young and that fact is difficult for me to "come to grips with".

My "100th workday before I retire" went fine. Barring something totally unforeseen, I am definitely retiring June 30, 2004.

Five months from today will be my first day of retirement, a scary thought!
 
I am 98% sure I will be retiring on June 30, 2004, the last day to qualify for the retirement incentive of an extra 5 years added to your age or years of service. Update - I did take the retirement on June 30, 2004. This will be my second retirement. I retired in November 1992, again taking advantage of a retirement incentive. This retirement will be different; I will be 57 and the do not anticipate being employed full time again.
