Call Me Anything

My boss is giving me a new opportunity at work. Great! I lied. I was already busy but apparently I'm just the person for the new duties. I found myself thinking "how in the heck am I going to do this too?" But there are three of us on my team and we have a motto: "Call us anything, but call us Employed!" We kind of live by that creed. It will take me some time to get up to speed and I'll have to juggle some of my current responsibilities and do a little better job of time management but I will be fine.
I'm starting a countdown calendar for my retirement from this job. Currently it is 1086 days...or 26076 hours to be more specific. Do you love the Internet or what. It just occurred to me to mention the countdown calendar and I reached for my calculator......I then thought why not Google it. I typed in countdown calendar and they asked for the date, and timezone along with the current time and BINGO.
As I've stated before, I have a lot of stuff to do before I give it up, but I'm working my plan each day. Not only am I dreaming about the things I'll be doing, but I'm actually laying the ground work for the stuff I plan to do once I pack up my plants and books.
My time will consist of:
Playing music
Tending my garden
Visiting with my friends
And traveling at other people's expense.
I'm excited. But until that day, I'll need to make sure I field all the skinners my boss knocks at me. Call me anything, but call me employed ----till I retire.


  1. Hmmm, would travelling at other peoples expense be connected with writing and/or playing music??

  2. Yes. In fact it does involve both. We're excited.
