    Notice has been given, now its just the countdown

    I hadn't planned on putting my notice in just yet, but my boss approached me about a new project and would I be interested in it, so I had to level with him and tell him I'm leaving the end of the month. Whew. I had anticipated that would be a more difficult discussion than it turned out to be. Although I have many reasons for retiring, what I stressed to him was that my parents need more attention than I can provide just on weekend. Who can criticize taking care of family?

    Relieved!

    It is a tough approach to work out ahead of time. Glad that the opportunity was presented and resolved that well.

    A bit scary to step off the edge, but you've been planning for it. Congratulations!
