Today is my last day of medical leave so it's back to the rat race tomorrow. I know I should consider myself very fortunate to have a job to return to and I really am thankful for it. But, if truth be told, if I could afford it, I would definitely retire. I'm sure you read about the 10 co-workers who won the Mega Millions jackpot last week. I believe that each of them is going to receive about $10 million and they all claim that they aren't going to quit their jobs. Wow. Those must be some jobs. I think they all work in the IT department at Chubb Insurance. How much fun could that be?
Now, don't get me wrong. I have a strong work ethic and take pride in my work. But, honestly, at this point in my life, I'm tired. This isn't what I planned. How many people, say, over 40, can say they are where (and I don't mean geographically) they thought they would be - monetarily, career-wise, relationship-wise, etc? And that the road they took to get to this point is the one they planned on taking? Not me; not by a long shot. I still subscribe to the saying "Man makes plans while God laughs."
Anyway, it's been great to have the time to blog and get to meet/ know some of my blogging friends during this time off. I'm going to continue to blog, but probably not on a daily basis (aw, I know how disappointed you are). So, boys and girls, keep those cards and letters coming in!
