One of These Days

Yesterday was a tough day at the office. Besides the State budget insanity hanging over our heads, it was the last day for a major system’s maintenance contract with folks we’d known long enough to become friends. We’re moving maintenance in-house for excellent reasons, but this is a painful change. I was shepherding the transition’s loose ends, so I was in contact with both teams all day.

And four co-workers–two I’ve been working with daily of late, and two others I’d worked with on several projects–chose yesterday to retire. A day full of good-byes….

This sort of day always sets me to thinking about my own retirement. Not yet. But I can see the end.
