Tonight is the "big roll out" of the attrition program for us. We got a packet of papers earlier in the week to look through; there were some things in it I hadn't expected.
I've been there almost 30 years, they've never had a problem paying me, or granting benefits to my wife.
Yet among the retirement requirements are certified copies of my birth certificate and our marriage certificate!
I didn't have one of the former, so FedEx woke me up with it earlier. We have one original copy of the 2nd, but if they plan on keeping it they're not getting that one, so I may be ordering another!
After almost a year of working 10 hour days and a lot of 6 day weeks, seeing the light at the end of the tunnel is nice. Hopefully it's not a train, like so many other times throughout my life!
Still fighting the head cold that is thinking of settling into my chest, but looking very much forward to this holiday weekend!
May it be kind to each of you...
