It is 10:00 a.m. here in Wsahington, D.C., and I have exactly three hours left until I am officially retired. I will be walking out the front door, hailing a cab to the airport, and then I will be in Vegas by 9:00pm PST.

I am going from rainy/snowy crappy D.C. to 67 degree sunshine (well, not at 9:00pm, but still.....).

Retirement, here I come!

The last walk out the door is one of life's great moments. Savor it and enjoy! Welcome to the club.

Congrats!

One point is to stay busy or the shock of not working 9 to 5 may overwhelm you.

Enjoy your yet to be determined future!!

My last day with the government I was at a meeting and my co workers were taking great delight in dumping projects on me. I smiled left the meeting and went back and emptied my desk
