    My lovely mother has been a social worker for nearly 30 years.

    Next week is her last day.

    I hosted a retirement party for her (friends and coworkers) several weeks ago (after making by hand all of the invitations ... I can go all crafty every now and then!)

    I am just so happy for her. She has always worked 50-55 hour work week, she has always had the largest case loads with the most difficult clients because she was so good at her job.

    So proud of my mom!

    She is going on a cruise in the spring with her sisters. She has a line up of home renovation projects. She will have more time with her horses.

    :) :) :)

    Sounds like she had a great career. How nice for her to be able to retire and think of all the good she has done during her many years at her job.

    Tell her welcome to the ranks of the retired tell her to take a good nap first because when she wakes up she will have a hell of a lot of things she will want to do.

    No grandkids. I'm an only child and don't want to have children.
