    TBD! I never could have maintained a job a all if that was my criterion!

    Congratulations, Rosarugosa, on going with your instincts. Retirement is sweet.

    TBD... yes, that was the deciding factor for me last spring... actually TEN BAD DAYS, and entire 2 full weeks of school that was awful, and it wasn't the first time in that school year...

    Congratulations, Rosa!
    You will be delighted when you don't have to drive to work in a storm this winter. I know I was already,

    Rosa,
    the MegaCorp. I worked for did the same scenario with health insurance benefits which also prompted a number of retirements. I've never heard of any of those who took the deal and regretted it.
    Good for you, enjoy!

    That was something I looked forward to, as well. And my friend's recently-retired husband was relieved that he wouldn't be expected to drive all over the state in snow and ice. They're enjoying their much-deserved freedom.
