Oh my, how things change...

So I called my benefits administrator at the City to discuss my coming separation.  After talking about some options, we got off the phone.  She immediately called me back.  Since I'm 57, I'm eligible to retire!! I can still work for a non-PERS employer without interuption of my retirement payment...

SO I'M RETIRING!! Wow. Interesting.  It takes some getting used to...

That's pretty flippin' fantastic! (About the benefits and all, NOT about being retirement age.... ;-)

Does early retirement cut your benefits?
Glad for you though :) Maybe you'll be able to come visit :))

Yay! that's great.

I know what you mean about the "getting used to". When I'm out in the middle of the day I look around and think "who are all these old people?!"...then I realize that they are retired, just like me!

I suspect you are right on the dream interpretation.

Good for you! I retired from being a Registered Nurse four years ago, and I love it! Not sure I could do those long days on my feet all day!
