A New Beginning

I made it out of work today with minimal tears!

My co-workers were very generous and contributed $310 to the National Marrow Donor Program in lieu of flowers or gifts for my retirement gift.

The team tricked me and came into the conference room as I was doing my exit meeting with my boss and brought a huge box of Trophy cupcakes (my favorite) to celebrate the beginning of a new chapter in my life.

What is my first trip in retirement?

I am running off to Costco right now! :)

You have my congratulations and envy. I know you will fill your retirement with enormously important and valuable learning experiences and contribute immense wealth to the world -- have fun with Nihon Vogue knitting courses, Costco, and yarn!!

Congratulations, Naomi! I am so happy for you. It must be a tremendous relief. Now you can get on with what makes you happy. Love-T

Hooray for you naomi! I am living vicariously through your retirement (as mine seems likely never to come. I think I will be working for a few years after I am dead!)

More knitting!!!

What? What? Am I reading that correctly? Trophy Cupcakes? And you didn't share? Ha Ha. Huge congratulations and big hugs to you on your retirement. I am so happy for you and look forward to seeing all the spinning and knitting projects you will be immersed in. I can't wait to join you in retirement someday. Joni
