Last Day

June 30th, 2015 at 05:35 am

My last day should be pretty easy! I finished up cleaning up my email yesterday, and all my files and drawers are cleaned out. The only work I have to do is updating some reports.

My lunch yesterday was $4, and I didn't have to pay anything for the Happy Hour last night. I didn't stop at PetSmart, so I will do that tonight.

Today I'll go to the caff and get some breakfast. Lunch will be free. Hopefully, I won't need to stop for food on the way home. I'll eat a big lunch!

At one time I thought I would bring in bagels on this day, but I completely forgot -- it doesn't fit into my budget, either! Anyway, it's not typical for people leaving to bring in food, I just thought I would make the gesture. But I won't. Smile

My budget spending is still at 86%. My DIL had to cancel the dinner on Wednesday because of baseball practice and suggested we just wait till we all get back from Michigan. Works for me!

I already made plans to meet friends for lunch next week. I'm going to work at keeping my social life lively. I know the four-walls syndrome can set in after retirement -- I'm not going to let that happen!

    Happy Retirement! Now on to the best part of life - time you can call your own. Please keep up the blog. I love reading about all the things that are going on in your life and how you manage to make it all work within a budget. I also keep track of what you are reading and have added several books to my own list on goodreads.

    All the best and congratulations again!

    Oh, I will definitely keep the blog! Only now it will be about making ends meet in retirement instead of heading toward it!

    Have a wonderful day! You have so much to look forward to. Holiday and family reunion will help with the transition and as you say, you'll develop supportive social activities. You are an experienced budgeter and I'm confident that you'll carry on as an excellent manager with time to fully enjoy your condo, grandkids and a long list of activities offered in your community.
