Dec 1 2017 was last day of working for Legacy Health after 37 yrs. as a registered nurse/nurse informaticist.  Hard decision to make as I am not quite at the age to collect SS and/or medicare.  It is very strange to retire when you are really at the pinnacle of your game, but I am eager to see what the next adventure will be. 
First official work day I was off, I began to get sick, feeling worse with every new day. I'm currently on my second week of retirement.  I started feeling better this week but still very low energy and just getting a few things done each day.    Despite these sick days, I am so excited and know it was the right decision to make.  I've got lots of plans for de-cluttering my house and cleaning out Dad's house and getting it sold.  With my illness and Christmas coming up, I haven't really gotten in to either of those, but come the new year......
I'm also excited to get back into doing yard work.  Working full time doesn't really allow for leisurely days planting and grooming the yard.  Taking care of my yard has always been one of my de-stressing activities and i've really missed in in the past decade.  Can't wait to get into my quilting and general crafting again, but first, need to straighten out my sewing room.  I've been collecting things in preparation but nothing's put together yet.
All in all, the new year is bringing lots of changes and I can't wait!  I'll keep you posted.  The photo below is where it all started. 1979.....
