Sigh of relief, approved to work from home!!!
Tuesday, June 30, 2020
It was the first email I saw this morning. What a load off the mind. That was a key domino in the long chain I’m setting up. I can finally start the retirement process at work with September 1st as my target date. I’m done scrambling and jumping through hoops, won’t need to go the ADA route (disability).
We got social security set up yesterday, I spoke with Medicare and our financial advisor, I put in three calls to my friendly retirement experts in Risk Management about various and sundry so I know where to start today.
I was at my office at the crack of dawn this morning to do a very few things, pick up an unused printer, collect my stack of mail, and give away my last painting. I left some organic coffee and a pretty mask for the kind soul who is going to drop off my mail on her way home from work so I shouldn’t have to do the crack of dawn run more than once a week.
Little underfoot senior cat could have landed me in the hospital last night. I was going to do the dishes but hadn’t quite made it to the sink when I stepped on her, tripped over her, and crashed to the floor. I’m surprised my wrist and elbow weren’t broken. I’m sure that landing mostly on thick mats helped, and hopefully I’ve inherited my mom’s strong bones. Quite shaken, I left the kitchen as is and soaked in a hot bath. Must have helped because I expected to be more sore than I am this morning though my hip is complaining. Now don’t I sound like an old person? And I still need to clean the kitchen.
