I have started a countdown to retirement on July 31, 2020.
Now, please don’t think that I dislike my job. I like it very much. My employer has been flexible with my schedule, even allowing my daughter to come to work with me when she was still here at home. I have tremendous leeway regarding how and when I complete my assignments.
It is just time. A hip replacement looms in my future. My parents will need more of my time. My daughter will be moving back to the area and need a substantial amount of time from me, too.
I have worked out the budget, and it is doable. I have made arrangements to work 10-12 hours a month as the bookkeeper only for my current employer…that is all I need to make the budget work.
Three hundred and eighty-one days – I can’t wait!
