Back to Work
Well, I've been on vacation since the weekend before Christmas. Tomorrow I return to work and I'm not looking forward to it.
I've posted several times about the deferred retirement option (DROP) that members of the Florida Retirement System have. I had planned to take advantage of this option, but over the last few months I've been reconsidering. I couldn't understand why anyone would not want to take advantange of the DROP option, but now I'm beginning to see it. I don't enjoy going to work any more. Things have been going on that have taken alot of the pleasure out of it. Some of the fault lies at my door and I own that responsibility, but there is a lot going on that all I can do is react. There's no place where I can be proactive in some of these problems.
I still have to work for nineteen months and 29 days to get my full retirement. I can hang on that long, I have no choice. Luckily, there are some options I can pursue which might make things more bearable. Maybe I just need a change of scenery.
Nineteen months, 29 days. But who's counting?
