    So, tomorrow is my last shift at work. I'll be Fully Retired.
    Probably worked too long, but it's hard sometimes to let things go.
    The timing feels right with recent issues.

    The next day, we head to WDW for our vacation.
    Hoping those 9 days getting some 'Disney Magic' will help start
    my retirement off right.

    You never know what the future has in store, but we are about as ready
    financially as we can be. Looking at it as a new chapter in our lives.

    Plan to visit Kennedy Space Center one day, the rest at Disney World.

    Looking forward to the 'Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party' we have
    tickets for.
    With Snow falling on Main Street and Cinderella's Castle covered in icicles
    and free cookies and Hot Chocolate, what's not to like.

    Hoping you a great vacation. This chapter in my large has been the greatest. Hoping it is yours also.

    @Tim Burr
    Good for you! I believe the best decisions I ever made in my adult life (3 of them) were to retire!

    Thanks for the kind thoughts.

    Guess we are leaving Nashville at the right time, lows projected in the upper 20's!

    Orlando will be warm, with the normal rain. No problem, just find a spot and ride it out.

    Enjoy your retirement and remember: "If your heart is in your dream, No request is too extreme,..."

    Dreams can come true, they can happen to you, when you're young at heart. Sounds like some dreams will be coming true for you @Tim Burr and your wife now that you are retiring. DW is a wonderful place to start off that retirement. Have fun. :)
