We have 3 years, 1 and 1/2 month to go, my OH will be 62, and IF still available will collect early.
I will stop working my part time job, and will fall back to my SSDI only.
By then, my 90 yo FIL should also be gone. Then we,will winter in the warm climate and summer here until my 83 yo father passes.

We are counting the years/days/months until then.

( now,watch, my FIL wilk live to 98 just to spite us!) But he's in frail health and very elderly now. We hope he passes as he's getting to the point we may have to take away his keys and exercise the power of attorney on him. We are hoping he passes before that as,it will DEFINITELY be a kicking and screaming fight!!!

Congrats OP on your last days.
Hope you adjust to retirement well!!!

what was your career/job?
I was training two people up until the left minute. My job is being absorbed by others

I worked for attorneys as a paralegal, not my first choice of career, but it paid the most. Being single, I had to go with the money

I thought I'd sleep too, but I was up at 6 a.m. That's 15 minutes earlier than work time! There's no hope for me

But man, did I get a lot done and I still had lots of day left!

I'm leaving the work force early -- I've planned a very long time for this.


Like BrightDogLover, I am excited but still can't quite grasp the fact that I only have two more days of working
Congratulations!

And the best part is, you can take a nap if you want to.
