X-hilarating X-it!!!


Something x-citing is happening in our family on June 29th, a really x-hilirating something that has been nearly 40 years in the making.

(It's called retirement, the best x-it strategy ever!)

That's right folks. My more than x-cellent husband has been working with tremendous skill and dedication for approximately 2/3 of his life, and it's all going to end 8 weeks from tomorrow. Yep. You heard me right. In no more than 40 working days that man of mine will be free as a bird...free as the wind...free at last!

Can I get a witness??

=D

PS. Let the good times roll...

Both of your lives will change. It's an adjustment, but it will be so nice being able to take off when you want.

jen said...

What? I think that's one way to work towards those clones of yourselves--no work=more play. Am I right?

Tima said...

That's very x-citing news!

Dixie Mom said...

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

Congratulations to your husband for that next retirement. I wish you enjoy this freedom for many years with good health.

Eva Gallant said...

That's great. I've been retired for three years now, and I'm so glad. Mr. Eva has been retired for 6 years.

storybeader said...

Amen! How fun! I don't know how that is going to feel! Congrats. to the two of you! {:-Deb

Karen Mortensen said...

That is wonderful. Maybe you can go on a mission.

karen said...

Wow - you have some very significant milestones coming up! I'll bet Dave is excited and yet having some mixed emotions too. I always thought that if I could be home I'd have so many irons in the fire, and I'm finding that it's hard for me to figure out what to do with myself. Of course, LaMar isn't here with me so it's a little different than if we both had our days free. I am still working but its so slow right now I have a lot of time on my hands. You and Dave have some pleasant and exciting plans to make coming up!

Judie said...

Yikes! You wound like you are excited about this, but I have been through it, and believe me, it will be STRANGE for a while. Changing one's mindset is not easy, no matter what people think. Rod spent so many years on the road that I have thought if I never went on another "road trip" I would have died and gone to Heaven! He's getting better after 15 years, but I still worry!!!

Andy David said...

Hello.
How exciting. At least you and he are still young enough to enjoy this new chapter in your life. Wishing you both the very best. Thanks for sharing.

I am inviting you and your friends here to Blog Hop Saturday!" this Saturday May 5th. Hope you can join the fun!

Yay!! Now what are YOU going to do with HIM?

Annesphamily said...

Congrats to both of you! The good times will roll! But you will need a little time to adjust to it all! I would love to retire! Sigh! I will probably be wheeling up to my desk until I am 72!

Great post! Have a terrific weekend.

Retirement has a magical sound to it! The Great Dane had retirement 'happen' to him last year when he had a that health crises. I will work for two more years, but I can almost taste and feel the freedom of retirement!

Ames said...

I am happy for you both. Word to the wise. Hold tight to your purse strings. I blew through $29k the first year of my retirement. I was bored and had all the time in the world to go shopping! I got so bored I started volunteering at the local museum. So have a back-up plan....and stay away from the stores! :D~Ames

Joy For Your Journey said...

Congratulations to your husband!! Sounds like a good time to go on a mission--maybe even Spanish speaking! Can you say "Guadalajara"?! :-) (Always worth a try. :-)

Darlene said...

Yes, I am counting the days too! That man has been waaaay too busy the past few years. I just hope you have a little time to yourself before they call you on a mission!!! If they do, I hope it will be after I am dead and gone because I don't know what I would do if I couldn't call you whenever I want.....Oh no, I could never stand that!

Jo said...

Congratulations to both of you! enjoy the adjustment, enjoy him ... and well, just enjoy!!!

yaya said...

Congrats to your hubby! I hope it's a smooth Xit! Does he have a good plan for the "after"? I wish you both all the fun, relaxation, and deserved blessings of working hard for all those years. I can't wait until it's our turn...maybe never, but we'll see!

VBR said...

Congratulations to both of you! Now you can do things that are just for the two of you. No more punching clocks, now you are really two free little birds!

LeAnn said...

Wow, that is awesome. I am hoping my good man will retire next year. I know that you will find many excited things to occupy your life. At least I have found way too much to do since I stopped being a nurse. In fact I am amazed at how busy I am.
Thanks for sharing the exciting news. Have a wonderful week end and don't forget to look at the moon.

JDaniel4's Mom said...
