Je m'en vais

After 40 years in the workforce, I am officially retired. I plan to do some part-time contract work on projects that interest me, learn new skills, become fluent in French, focus on my health, and spend more time with my family and friends, most especially Steve Freitag (rootbeer1), my most especial husband. Thanks everyone for all your support and well wishes and encouragement. As Rafiki says in the Lion King, "It is time."

No longer a useful member of society? Now to get Steve away from that wage slavery thing... ;-)
