The Last Paycheck

Many milestones that have come and gone in the last couple of years:

  • We had to move back to Texas

  • I had to go back to work

  • We had to move to Austin

  • I vested in my pension

One future milestone is when my wife officially retires (legally, as in receives a pension – not just stops working, which actually happened in 2011). But mostly I have just been counting down the days. Last year. Last month.

And today I officially started my last pay period. The last day of this two-week period will be my last day at work. If all goes as planned, it will be my last wage-earning W2 type of job, ever!

It’s starting to feel real now.
