I've shared this with some of you in past emails but now I'm making a formal, "world wide" announcement. Thursday, February 1, 2007 is Linda's last day at work. After 25 years at the health system (this time...I worked there two other times in the 1970's) and almost 46 years of working...I am a tired old lady and beginning Feb 2nd...I'll be retired! I'm concerned about making ends meet financially but if I have to get a part time job, I will........but it will be at a job that's totally different than what I've done in the past. No more call centers and no more headsets for sure! I still can't believe this is happening, but I guess next Monday morning when my alarm doesn't go off...I'll begin to believe it. My supervisor has organized a retirement party for me, which will be the evening of February 23rd in a local restaurant...if you'd like to attend, let me know and I'll see that your name is added to the list.
I have no great plans for travel, etc. (I know there's not going to be enough money coming in for much of that) But, I do want to do a good spring cleaning here at my house and do some extensive work in the yard. And it will be nice not to have to go to work and be able to see my friends more. I am blessed with many dear friends and I can't wait to call up this one or that one and say "hey, what cha' doing...lets go get some lunch."
Anyway, that's my news...I will keep you posted as to how I'm doing with this new phase of my life. (I'm sure I'll do just fine.)
Until next time..........Linda
