New Year's Eve
Today is the last day of employment for my Fellow. Tomorrow starts the first day of Retirement for him! He woke up early and dressed in a loose fit pair of jeans. I moved his shaving items from his bathroom to mine for his convenience when he informed me that he was not shaving today. Lol My nephew and his family are visiting and are using the second bathroom that my husband took over when our son moved out. Laughing I returned his shaving items to his bathroom wondering it I should pack them away since this might be the new normal for us. For 26 years he has shaved every morning and always kept a close haircut (he was also in Law Enforcement and this was a mandate). So the rebellion starts today, what fun! Basically all he had to was show up for a couple hours and then he was free! He arrived promptly home after a short goodbye to everyone at work. I was concerned that this would become a little emotional for us both, but it turned out to be celebratory:) My nephew has always been close to my Fellow and met him on the sidewalk when he returned home for a handshake and embrace which did bring tears to my eyes, but they dried quickly when I saw his expression of relief and freedom. We both laughed and are acting like children that are left home with the parents away. We can now do whatever we wish and have to answer to no one except ourselves.
