Been Preoccupied .....
Wednesday, February 12, 2014
I think this happens to all of us from time to time. For me right now work is what's front and center of my preoccupation. They are closing down manufacturing (for the most part) at the IBM plant I work at. Now don't get me wrong, for me personally this isn't a bad thing. I have work there for 29 years and was ready to retire last year and start collecting my pension(yes I still have a traditional pension plan). When they announced the shutdown it was a no brainer to stay till the end and get my severance package which includes for me 6 months salary.
Anyway, my preoccupation is due to my workload which has gone through the roof and will probably stay that way almost right up to the end. It's ok it's just that for a short time in the big scope of things those around me outside of work have to suffer a little with my preoccupation.
I am almost down to counting the days at this point and I CAN HARDLY WAIT ! I' am so looking forward to spending more time with my wife, family, do a little more fishing and geocaching. Eventually I plan to find a low stress job a few days a week, something I can enjioy and walk away from at the end of the day and leave behind.
