Thoughts on Thursday

  • In slightly over 2 months I will be officially retired.....I am going to miss the guys, I like working with men. We joke around, we talk, sometimes we approach the subject of our spouses, (but that never gets more than a passing word or 2), I'll miss comparing notes about customers. I will just miss the interaction with men....younger men.....hearing their perspective, a funny work story, or learning something new. Most of the time I am in the office alone working on the computer, but sometimes I have to tell some of the guys what to do (maybe that is what I'll miss-???) or sometimes I am feeling chatty. I know they will miss me too, at least the 2 service guys will....they have told me so. I'll also miss having a sense of 'importance', a purpose, using my brain, having intelligent conversations with different kinds of people....  Am I talking myself out of retirement??? No, not quite. Well, a new chapter in my life is starting! Wish me luck!


  1. Yes, you will miss those fellows. I worked in a shop with mostly men. They ended up being like brothers to me. When I retired I missed the co-workers more than the work routine. I will wish much happiness and good luck with your retirement. xoxo,Susie

  2. I miss my coworkers, but not the job! I like volunteer work, cause it gives me a sense of purpose and I can use my brain!

  3. Sounds like the same thing I went through. I went on a trip. I think you should, too. Where should we go?
