One more week.

Well, the state budget gets a week reprieve and they can take their time passing the budget as far as I'm concerned. I'm on pins and needles waiting to hear what the final retirement incentive will be and/or if I'll be eligible for it. It's quite possible and likely that I'm going to miss the eligibility.. by days. And the rumors going around.. income deductions.. I've heard of at least 25% and as much as 42% reduction in salary if you take the "incentive"... yada, yada.

In the meantime, the disability retirement (a whole 'nother thing) that I applied for 2 years ago at the suggestion of our HR department, that was denied, appealed this past December, and now I find out they want yet another hearing. That never happens and even their doctor said I shouldn't be working there under those conditions... Usually they either say yes or no so I can't imagine what in the world this is gonna be about... but there's still a chance of bein' able to retire early that way.

And I'm still waiting on the Human Rights investigation to be assigned and started.

That's a lot for a girl to think about so early in the morning, ain't so? But then again, three kinds of hope is better than none. I just need patience and I'm tryin'.

And just so ya know... The groundhogs - who I'm gonna start just callin' the Clan - is doin' fine. The babies have doubled in freakin' size in mere days and now they all just stand there in the yard even when I go outside. They ain't scared of nothin'. Yay.

Ok, well there ya go. My life as I know it on a Tuesday. I think it's time for some toast, and I think I'll wear a bunch of jangly silver bracelets and some cool earrings today just cuz their pretty :) I call it "self encouragement" - any way I can. *grin*.

I'm looking at a salary freeze this year and retirement is farther away than ever. This is the sort of thing I try not to think about too much. It makes me kind of queasy...

I'm going to start living like a groundhog. No fear!!!
