Good afternoon!! Two days down and now I have a three day weekend!! This is my kind of work!!
I had a meeting yesterday and the subject of my retirement came up. It's scary business. I'm only 45, but would like to buy 4 years of service from before I started working for the school district then that would only leave 3 more years and I could retire with my full 30 years of full retirement. Health insurance is the killer for us. The school pays for mine but I have to cough up the $ for DH's. He'll be 70 in January and is eligible for Medicare but we figure after we pay for all of the part A, B, C, D's etc we are just as well off to leave it like it is right now. When I do retire, he'll have to go to Medicare because it will cost $600 a month just to keep my health insurance. But like I told the gals yesterday, it's costing me $500 a month right now just for gas because of my long commute. I'm sure I'll probably find something else closer to home. It's just so hard to know what to do. I have a wonderful job!! Great pay, summers off and I'm starting my 24th year there. But DH has been retired since '98 and he's not getting any younger. We've been very blessed that Missouri teachers have a good pension and because of our age difference we took the option of me having his pension the rest of my life too. What to do, what to do???
One thing I know for sure though is it doesn't help anyone to worry about it. You are smart to be proactive about it. That's what I'm trying to do...make sure I have a plan!!!
Todays agenda is a little housework. I had wanted to try to make it to check out one of the butcher shops I found near by that sell the grassed beef and pastured chickens/eggs. Not sure I'll get there today though. We'll see.
