Count Down

I'm wondering why I volunteered to stay until the bitter end instead of using up vacation time. I must have been feeling magnanimous when my
coworkers said they'd like time off at Christmas.

This is a notoriously slow time of year for construction so there's not a lot going on. I'm taking the opportunity to change email addresses on accounts and newsletters that I subscribe to. I never realized how many there are.

I've finished my copyediting class and will be ordering business cards and endeavoring to drum up clintele. It would be so nice if I could work from home. Maybe I could actually finish one of the novels I've been working on for decades.

I'm so looking forward to retiring, but I'm having trouble wrapping my mind around the concept. I've worked at JCP for more than half my life, but I've been assured there is life outside the office.
