Retire and don't look back

I am finally 2 weeks from retirement! I can hardly believe it. I remember when it was 4 years away. I thought the day would never come. I have now begun the final countdown and it feels so good!!

My colleagues at work gave me a retirement party and dinner last night. It was really nice. They are really a fun group and I am going to miss them.

The celebration started with a cake and a gift at lunch and then dinner at a cool little restaurant in San Francisco.
