Retirement - it's official [Mar. 18th, 2010|09:08 am]
[Current Music |My heart draws a Dream]

Yesterday I went to a Retirement Recognition of service at RESA where I've worked since 1978. Since I haven't been working since 2006, I was a bit surprised to be included in the ceremony. My lovely co-worker rakshi aka, Queen of LoTR fans (at least in my book!) was also recognized, so that made it even more awesome. I was so touched by the lovely memory book they gave me, with photos of coworkers & personal notes from them. A $100 Macy card was quite unexpected as well~!

I also received my official disability retirement approval a few days ago.

Congrats on the retirement! The ceremony and gifts sound very touching.

Also-- thanks as always for the spam. There were a few I hadn't seen before and it's always good to see repeats! :)

Ohhh, that's so wonderful that they put all that together for you! That's a long record of service, too, I have no doubt that you earned it! Congratulations. <3
