I have a calendar saved that tells me how many days it is until July 29th, 2024.  Thats the day I plan on full retirement.  But that's still 1095 days and change away.  

 

So I did the math and found out that's only 156 weeks...

 

Sounds a lot better.  So from now on, I'm counting by weeks.

You could consider something like 5 days in a work week x 156 weeks = 780 days till retirement.

 

Throw in some holidays and vacation time and its even less.

 

Good luck.

I'm on a 4 day a week schedule, so that cuts it down to 624...that IS a thought :)

Counting how many days till retirement is like checking your investments every day.  Don't, drive you nuts and discouraging.

I like the week count better than the days...and the month count better than the week!@!

We hope in 12mths an incintive package miggt show itself...if not, we have 28 months!

Isn't that the gestation of an Elephant???

We all KNOW babies come late most of the time...I was close!!!:wub::D

You sure about that? My grandmother used to say that second, third, and from then on babies took nine months. That first one, however, sometimes took as little as four.

Back in your Grandmothers day, she was most likely correct.

Today, for whatever reason, most are at least 3 to 4 weeks past 'due date'...

Going on the % of my family's and their friends history.

I have 340 days :D

 

I know what you mean @LawMan Mark, SASS #57095L

I was counting months, @Injun Ryder, SASS #36201L was counting days for me until January 2023, but then I decided that July 4th or 2022 will be  my last day here  at this gawd forsaken bureaucracy. :lol:

 

My attitude is so much better now. When something irks me now I just think "In less  than a year I am GONE." and  things  are much better. ;)

We celebrated my grandparents 50th in 1972, later found out they were married in 1923 but because they didn’t want anyone thinking about George’s quick birth they told everyone 1922.

DO NOT RUSH INTO RETIREMENT!!

 

You will quickly discover that you no longer have time for ANYTHING!
