Three weeks to go....

After what seems like a lifetime of work, and thought, and a career of serving the People of the State of Michigan, it boils down to three more weeks. Then, I'm officially retired. While I'll be around for another year after that, on part-time contract to help the Office transition into the future, it won't feel the same. Or be the same.

Already, I can feel the Office changing around me. People are congratulating me (and the others, who also took the County's retirement proposal) and wishing us well. But the place is already starting to change out from under us. And soon, we'll be little more than a memory, fading into Office lore.

Three weeks...and as much as I'm looking forward to having the time to do things I've dreamed about doing, I'll be savoring every last moment.
