office  I did it!  I retired today.  It was a great run with many opportunities and experiences and even more co-workers and friends.  When I arrived at my office this morning there was food everywhere!  A crock pot of BBQ wieners simmered on my desk.  My fantastic co-workers/friends brought food, a present, a retirement sash to make sure you knew who the party was for, and a card signed by everyone.    sashEven my son showed up unexpectedly after I texted that a surprise party was on.  It was the beginning of a great day. present

But you know how these things go.  You end up eating all day long.  I did my best to do some work.  I accomplished a few things that were on the back burner and needed to be finalized and I cleaned out my office one last time.  Then I went home and my wonderful husband took me to dinner and brought home champagne.   champagne

Tomorrow I may not get out of my PJs.  But I can’t wait to work on those five unfinished manuscripts and do some gardening.
