As of tomorrow, I have 21 working days until I retire. It's been 37 years and 8 month since I went to work as a temp. Not bad.

To use a trite saying, it will be bittersweet. Yes, I will miss some of my coworkers. No, I won't miss dragging my butt out of bed at 5:30 evey morning. It used to be 4:30 when my kids were little and I had an hour's drive.

I've already started cleaning out my office. I have to wonder where did all of this stuff come from? And what do I do with the plaques and awards I've received over the years? They're not something I would put on display at home, but they do have meaning.

I'll figure it out. I already have plans of things I want to do. The first couple of days may be, NOTHING!

Coming Soon to a Blog Near You

One of the things I've been wanting to do with this blog for quite some time are book reviews. I've been an avid reader since I was 8 years old and discovered the school library. That should quailfy me for something.

Maybe I can even put the vast amount of critique to use that I've received over the past 4 or 5 years. There are some really good books out there now, and some not so good, so I'm going to go for it.
