Thank God almighty, I'm free at last.

I'm posting here, rather than Office Party, because it is an accomplishment.

As of today, I'm retired from the tax business. Still some pesky extensions hanging around, but I'll get those done in the next week or so. I've been doing this work for 41 years, and it is time to hang up my abacus.

Thanks, all. I'm really pleased that I made the decision, and so is my husband. Tax season is stressful to spouses too.

Congratulations, MM (and hubby too.:D)

After 41 years whatever will you do with your time?;)

Read more than I already do. Have marathon DVD viewings of shows I'm not caught up on. Crochet more. We plan to do a little traveling. I have massive decluttering to do in a house I inherited, before I can put it up for sale. Massive decluttering of my office.

Somehow I don't think I will get bored!

Yay, Mary. That is a lot of tax seasons to endure. Be happy and well!

Wow, congratulations! My dad is a CPA that has had many, many late nights this season (as every tax season), and I can well imagine the relief you feel!

Congrats! Sounds like you're going to be busy in your retirement, but that's good. Little rest, little play, and always keep moving forward. :)

It's a good feeling waking up and knowing you don't have to go to work.

41 years is an epic accomplishment!
