Thank you Lord for hearin' my prayers. I just got word that the open enrollment for our states early retirement incentive will be Oct 1 through the end of Dec. and I qualify!!!
Age 50 with 30 years of service - YAAAAHOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
It's not even REAL yet.. I can't comprehend. I'm gonna have to do alot of number crunchin', since my previous plans were that i would retire at 55, have my house paid for and some cash in the bank. So it's a little earlier than I planned.... and because of my age, I have to take a 25% pay reduction... BUT...
I WILL BE FREE OF THAT PLACE!!! NEVER, NEVER have to go back there or see it again!!! And when I talked to the people at Human Rights the other day, they said the investigation will continue even if I do retire - so double YAYAYAYAY!
I had hoped this would happen, but didn't dare really hope - know what i mean??? Oh my gosh.. I just don't know what to do with myself. HOW does a girl celebrate something like this?
