When we were young, it seemed as if retirement was eons away. But it arrived at our house yesterday.
Marvin had his last day at work. At the end of the day, he had to turn in all his badges etc and was escorted from the property.( I told you we take security seriously here in NoAla.)
We went to Mellow Mushroom for dinner to celebrate.
When I asked my sweet husband how he felt about retirement, he replied, "Excited and Scared at the same time." That about sums it up for me as well. We hope we have made all the right decisions and that we will enjoy this season of life. However, we are wading into the waters instead of jumping right in. Marvin will work part time for another contractor but on the same project he has been working on for years now. For now we will enjoy our two weeks off!
