Interesting...I really love my job as well, in fact this current one is the most enjoyable one I've had. But one of the great things about life now is that I'm on a count-down (9 mos). It's really exhilarating to know that this is the last job, and I don't have to worry any more about what comes next, at least in terms of work for pay.

Congrats on your impending retirement...you'll notice some changes over the first year or so including probably being able to sleep later!

I'm right there with YOU! I just had my 1:1 performace review (yearly) with my manager. I'm really good at what I do and I kinda like my job, but am ready for the NEXT chapter in my life. ooooh, what's around the NEXT corner!

Thanks Rossue and Donna! And I agree, I'm pretty good at what I do as well, despite constant worries about whether I'm really doing a good job. I had a great annual review last September, and what I think may make some of us "getting-close-to-retirement" folks even better at what we do as that we are very excited about life being good. We also tend to be a lot freer about voicing our opinions and generating new ideas; it's just a general feeling of relief, so let's go for it, nothing to lose, nothing to fear.

I'll be in Quartzite Feb 4-8th. If you're interested in seeing a 5.0TA, just stop by or PM me for my number.

My boss actually asked me one night what my plans were, so I ended up giving about 11 mos notice. That was about three months ago and I'm still here, so my trust was well placed. That's one of the reasons I love this job. Some places I've worked could easily have said, oh, Josh is already planning to leave, might as well let him go early. Good company and good people.

Maybe I should stay! Naaaaaaaaaa....

Hi Ginger,

Yes! That's absolutely great. Our house is in Yuma. I work in Phoenix but go home for weekends. We would definitely like to come visit. Best for us would probably be Saturday the 7th in the afternoon, would that be good for you?
