It's quiet here!

I'm finally in the home stretch, and in fact could already retire today but I am planning to wait until my last major batch of employer stock vests, in February 2021.

If I can tolerate an extra year after that, I will qualify for retiree health insurance, which would be beneficial as I am more than a decade away from eligibility for Medicare.

But it's very pleasant to be in a financial position to pull the plug tomorrow if my employer does something intolerable, such as trying to make me return to the office instead of pleasantly working on my shaded patio as I've been doing for the past six months! Sorry, I've spent enough time in offices for one lifetime, and I'm not going back to one, ever.

In other news, I heard a rumor that there's some sort of election coming up, but I'm doing my best to tune out the noise.
