Three Weeks And Two Days Of Work...

...ends at quitting time tomorrow. When I retired back in 2011, I did not expect to be working fulltime ever again (unless the job paid very well and was a no brain and no work position - but then I already had retired from the government so that was not about to happen). I have been working part-time, on call mostly with some advanced scheduling now and again, and probably have been averaging about 16 or 24 hours per week, since last August. For just over the past three weeks, I have worked every weekday while covering for a coworker who is on vacation. While having done so will be an okay boost for the pocket-book but I must say, I am happy I am not working fulltime for more than that. Getting up every morning at 0530 is for the birds - not me.

Going back to the part-time, on call, work is better than okay with me. I prefer having at least a couple of days per workweek, in addition to the weekends, to do whatever in Hades I want to do and there is no way to do that working fulltime. Retirement can be fun but not if you wind upon working full time except maybe at a rifle & pistol range, a mountain resort, or a... (I had best not mention my other choice I may get in trouble at home). 

Anyway, I am looking forward to my deliverance that will commence tomorrow at quitting time.

All the best,
GB
