OK I did it.
I am now officially retired. I signed up for Social Security. I wanted to wait till 65 or 66, but in this economy I have decided to quit fighting it.
I will be home to take care of mom, garden, mow lawn, volunteer for various things like the TAA, church and QSDS newsletter.
And there is art! I have lots of ideas for a new series of deconstructed photo quilts. And best do them while they are fresh in my mind.
Oh, I will be freelancing to earn extra money, anyone that needs a hand with print production or graphic design call me. But I am not going to stress over finding a job, or even one to apply to anymore.
