Well, I just turned 55 on Saturday, September 19th. I can officially retire, if I so choose. Which, at this point, I am not. In December, I will have 37 years of service with the federal government. I am hoping to stay until I have 40 years and then retire. At that point, I will be 58 years old, which I think is still pretty young to retire, but if I can at that time, I will.
I thought I would feel differently about my job today, but I guess since retirement isn't in the plans right now, I really don't feel any different.
I am just excited that I will have plenty of knitting time in 3 years.
