Last Day of 2012!

Monday, December 31, 2012

For those that don't know I plan on retiring April 2013 and I have been counting down the days. As you can see in the picture above! emoticon Everytime I see it I think back to the old days on tv where they would show prisoners counting down the days on the wall, that is what I feel like here. It is time for me to say GOOD BYE but I cannot until April when I can get on Hubby's insurance b/c of my medical conditions I need to be continuously insured and I refuse to pay cobra $935.00 for even a few months. So, I have 4 more months to go here, and I will start another similar calendar like this one! emoticon

Don't get me wrong I am blessed and lucky to have a job but this job has been affecting my health more than you will ever know, that is when I knew it was time to go. Not to mention I gained 20 lbs in the since August due to stress here and my emotional eating. I finally realized I need to take care of myself for my husband, children and grandchildren.

So, here's to the new year and leaving the past behind.

    We're both counting down until April, for different reasons, but I can't wait to celebrate with you! I know David will be thrilled and we will all be excited to watch your health improve, as your stress level decreases!
Happy New Year Doll! Love ya emoticon

    Yes, it does look like a prisoner counting down the days until release. COBRA is outrageously expensive!! I know you can make it through the next 4 months. You are one determined lady!!
Try to take some time to breathe.
