So two days from now I will be officially retired.  I feel at peace with the decision….but saying goodbye has never been easy for me.  I will miss the people…we’ll some of them, but am ready to stay home.  I want to use my time wisely.  The job has become increasingly stressful and I find I don’t handle it as well as I used to.  I am hoping to spend more time with Sydney . It is a big change and I am grateful.  I will be able to take care of our house and be with my husband and this is something I have always wanted.
