I Am Free!

old job!



I no longer have
to put up with
daily drudge
of a job.

And, although I loved
the job itself~
and have the highest regard
for the health facility I
worked for....
I am happy to move on.

I can't tell you how excited I
am to move into the
next phase of my

I will be sharing more
about what I am doing

I have a whole new
adventure planned
right after the
new baby is

I am singing..
Oh Happy Day!
Can you hear it?
Is it running through
your head now?
Now you will be smiling
(or cursing)
all day.

I am off for Starbucks
and a sit about
with a few friends.
Life is good!

Lucky you. I am counting down to my retirement as well, but it is still months away. I'm sure you are about to discover a whole new way of living life, have fun.

I'm so happy for you! You get the best thing there is. Time!

How did I miss this? Congratulations! You will love the life of leisure.

BTW, if someone is new here they may think that you are the one having the baby "I have a whole new adventure planned right after the new baby is
born". Just saying, that would be a whole new venture!
