Well another big step has happened. Last year it was the new Big Country 3450, and now Last week I finally retired from the job I had for 18 + years. It was bittersweet. I have known for a while it was time to move on. Haven’t been happy for a few years, and my work started to affect home life. My job was simple, as a building inspector for the town I live in, my job was to enforce the rules and regulations. Well too much outside influence started creeping in and it started to be a real hassle. Us late baby boomers do not like change and have a hard time listening to the younger , so called know it alls . So having to give 6 months notice, I thought was the hard part, boy was I wrong. I trained a new guy for the last few months and all of a sudden it was here THE LAST DAY. They had a party for me at lunch, which was very special to me and after that I was out the door, just like that. Now with a few days behind me, my mind has been hit with this reality that , hay you can’t go back , you no longer have a job, your retired. But wait isn’t that what I wanted, to retire, the answer to that is a resounding YES. So my mind has been a little conflicked, but it will pass and I will be better for it.
The bad part of it all is that I really am going to miss some of the people, it was like a second family to me, that is the hard part. As I have said before though , in order to move on in life you have to make hard decisions and this has been a big one. The path to full time Rving is getting closer and that is the main goal.
Next SELLING THE HOUSE oh boy!!!!
