My retirement day is finally here, the last day I have to work. I thought this day would never get here. I have thought about retirement every day for the past several years and it has made time seem to move so slow. My official retirement day is going to be February 1, but with me using my personal days and some vacation time, I hope I won’t be working any in January. We won’t be moving to our farm until April because we don’t have a home built there yet and will be living in our camper while we build it. We hope the weather will be warm enough by April to do so because our lease ends here at our apartment and we will have to move regardless of the weather.
With the short time we have left here in Chicago we are really enjoying our stay at our apartment and taking advantage of going to some of the great restaurants here.
Speaking of our home selling situation, the buyers have asked for another closing extension, and now want to close January 11th :(. This is it, if they don’t close then they lose their earnest money and we will cancel the deal. They say this will be it but we have heard that before. I will let you know how it goes. The only reason we have let this go on so long was because we know during the holidays the housing market is pretty slow.
So please stay tuned as we go on to the next station in life ( sorry about the railroad pun), it should start to get more exciting now.
