A windy, rainy day...

March 2nd, 2018 at 04:30 am

All day, that is. With a little snow/sleet and power outages thrown in, perhaps.

I decided to drive to work today and am hoping I don't run into any major problems. I'll have to skip my 2 walks today, darn.

The co-owner wife and I had a nice talk about our parents yesterday at the office. I had asked if I could bring in some artwork to hang on the walls. I'll wait til Monday to do that as I don't want it to get wet today.

After my manager and I agreed on my new 3-day work schedule, I realized the Tax-Free Retirement Income Strategies class I signed up for won't work, since it's on a night when I'll be working late. I called and was able to cancel my registration and apply the fee ($26, which included a 10% discount for registering early) to a different class that takes place on a free night for me. The new class meets 3 times and is $39 for the class and another $30 for materials, but the woman on the phone gave me a $10 break on the class cost itself, for no particular reason. Maybe to save herself some paperwork, I don't know.

The new class is on Financial Strategies for Successful Retirement. I was more specifically interested in the tax-free income strategies class, but this one should still be interesting too. It starts this month.

And in the meantime, I found the website of the planner who is instructor for the 1st workshop, and it looks like they regularly do the tax-free program in different towns, so while there's nothing in March set up right now, I should be able to eventually take that class too.

I have gradually been unsubscribing to the many different job/career website auto alerts I've been signed up for, virtually uninterrupted for years. If I didn't have a job, I was looking for one, if I had a job, I was always looking for a better one. How wonderful it will be to declutter my email inbox of irrelevant jobs spit out by not-so-good search engines. (Like, because I often search for "writer," I always get jobs for insurance underwriters.)

So today is the final day of my final week on my full-time work schedule (and full-time pay). I'm excited to begin a new chapter in my life. Next week, on my 1st day off in the new schedule, I'll be driving dad to a certain store where he wants to shop for adjustable mattresses.
