It's a rainy Friday

March 23rd, 2012 at 10:07 am

So it's already a melancholy sort of day (especially after all that unseasonably warm, sunny weather) -- and to make it more melancholy, I am going through old emails at work (I have a bad habit of letting the mailbox pile up). Anyway, it's kind of like reading a diary -- so much has happened at work, and I am feeling sad about people who have left, some in not-too-happy circumstances.

I found a retirement calculator that estimates working days left -- not just calendar days. I have 622. That seems really doable! Oh, I have decided to retire as soon as I get Medicare. If -- when I get closer to the day -- I decide that it can be borne another year, I'll go to 2015, like it says on my bio, when I'll get the full social security benefit. But since I am retiring on my ex-husband's benefit, that may be a moot point. I really need to drag him to the SS office and figure this out.

Anyway, I'm liking the sound of 622 days.

This weekend I am going to visit my friend in Indiana and visit the booth as well. I have two small boxes of stuff to put in, and, hopefully, a check to pick up.

I just got a half.com payment today -- $6.77. I think I paid 4.94 in postage, so it's just a bit.

    I don't know about where you live, but we really needed the rain. Fortunately we received a little yesterday too.

    I am glad that you can get the MediCare benefit. My mom's employer really messed with her and forced her to retire earlier by threatening to cut her health insurance benefits during retirement. It really does lead to serious considerations when retirement approaches! Good luck during these 600+ days on the job... Wink Jerry
