In a few days, I will be transitioning to a new way of life; I will retire. This event that I have talked about in terms of someday is now actually here. Along with it came a whole lot of questions, which is kind of scary.
Recently, I read a blog on Colbern Road's page about the "Retirement Conundrum." When should or can I retire? How do I know and how can I balance the quality and quantity of life without a crystal ball? It is a hard question for a person to decide for himself, but even harder when the decision is for another person.
After 16 rewarding years at MCPL, it is time for me to say goodbye. It is with both sadness and excitement that I prepare to leave. The past 10 years at Camden Point as the Branch Manager have been a time of learning, growing, and experiencing the life of this community and the people whom I will truly miss.
I get that question a lot lately. After working for the Library for 29 years, I will be retiring at the end of February. When I say I am staying home, some people wonder, "What on earth is there to do at home?" I already have a pretty long list of things I would like to get done around my house. I have a list of household chores to do each day to try to get my house in tip-top shape. I also want to organize the garage and the basement; repaint all of the baseboards in my house; work on the flower beds around my house; wash the mold off of the siding…you get the idea.
