The Date is Set (in Jello)

Well, the time has arrived to publicly announce we are retiring from the duties that call us to our duty stations M-F, 8-5. We will transform our wage slave lifestyle to one of total recklessness and full abandonment. All we know at this point is the timer has been set and the clock is ticking.

The date you ask? OK. April 15, 2012. Why that date? Do you really have to ask? For 46 years, we have worked for the IRS. At least that is what it has felt like. We work and they take our $$. So, it seems fitting to celebrate breaking free on the date all wage slaves love to hate. Actually, the date is fluid at this point - floating somewhere between Jan 1, 2012 and April 15, 2012.

As we continue downsizing and ridding ourselves of stuff, we will update this blog with our thoughts, questions and deep ponderings. Come along for the ride. I hope you enjoy the musing.

  1. Good idea on setting the date. We did that and I think it helped a lot. Good luck on the preparation to get there ~ in many ways, full-timing is a mind set and once you set the goal in motion, the journey has already begun! Enjoy!
